Poll: What Do You Think of Fear Factory’s New Song, “Disruptor”?
On Friday, Fear Factory released “Disruptor,” the first single from their forthcoming album, Aggression Continuum.
The track arrives after almost six years with no new music from the band, to say nothing of their various legal battles, line-up changes, and public drama: longtime vocalist Burton Seabell quit the band last year after guitarist Dino Cazares launched a Crowdfunding campaign to finish Aggression Continuum, which was first recorded in 2017. Burton called the fundraising effort a “scam,” and distanced himself from the project, but his vocals still appear on the final product. 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.
Meanhile, Static-X bassist Tony Campos and drummer Mike Keller, who have both been with Fear Factory for some time, round out the current FF lineup. Recent social media activity indicates they may have already found their new vocalist.
So now you’ve had a few days to really listen to and digest the track, we’re wondering, Fear Factory fans: was it worth the wait? Do you love it, like it, or loathe it? Cast your vote below!
Aggression Continuum is out June 18.
