Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares has tacitly denied rumors that the band is breaking up.

The gossip spread across the web yesterday after the band’s former bassist, Christian Olde Wolbers, claimed the group was disbanding on social media.

When another fan asked why Wolbers is being “salty,” Cazares said:

Then yet another fan expressed confusion as to why anyone would listen to a former member of the band concerning the band’s present state, to which Dino responded:

It’s worth noting that none of these answers are an explicit denial… but they certainly don’t seem like the words of a guy whose band is breaking up.

Discuss in the comments section below while we wait for more intel.
