New Fear Factory Album Coming This Spring


After years of delays due to a lengthy legal battle, a new Fear Factory album will finally arrive this spring.

Guitarist and co-founder Dino Cazares broke the news on Death Angel guitarist Ted Aguilar’s “Alive & Streaming” YouTube series, saying the album will come out in the next “two or three months” and that its first single will be released soon.

The album was originally recorded in 2017 with Burton Seabell handling vocals, although he has since quit the group. Acting on his own, Cazares added some finishing touches to the album in recent months with funds sourced from a Crowdfunding campaign, but Burton called the fundraising effort a “scam,” distancing himself from the effort before eventually quitting the band. Burton then issued a longer statement on his decision to leave, and Cazares put out a statement of his own that left the door open for Burton to rejoin while also calling out Burton’s “lies, the negativity and the blame.” It later came out that Cazares had previously acquired 100% of the rights to use the Fear Factory name in a years-long court battle.

Seabell at one point claimed that Fear Factory’s new album would be titled Monolith, but that has likely changed as Dino later indicated the title didn’t have his blessing.

Cazares lent a guest guitar appearance to a Front Line Assembly track released earlier this week.
