SO, FEAR FACTORY ARE GETTING BACK TOGETHER
According to the “status” post on Fear Factory’s MySpace, the band will have a “New Album and World Tour in 2009!”
I guess this was inevitable, despite Burton C. Bell’s claims when we interviewed him a few months back that he doesn’t even like metal. Whatwith the Divine Heresy soap opera, the relative failure (commercially) of Bell’s Ascension of the Watchers, the rest of the dudes doing God knows what, and reports of Burton and Dino kissing and making nice at a show in LA a few weeks ago (I can’t find the source, but I remember reading that they chatted), the time seems ripe for an FF reunion.* I’d think there will be plenty of interest too, judging by the fervency of Fear Factory fans who comment on our site.
*After I published this article, Axl pointed out to me that this news does not necessarily mean that Dino is back in the band. Good point.
