FEAR FACTORY's NEW Sonic Assault 'The Industrialist' Out In Europe Today!
FEAR FACTORY's eighth studio album 'The Industrialist' is out in Europe today (June 1st) and due in North America this Tuesday, June 5 via Candlelight Records. Once again the industrial Metallers have come up with a conceptual record based around a story written by vocalist Burton C. Bell. Lyrics to the album's ten songs divulge the narrative as discussed recently by Bell on the interview below. The album's artwork was created by American designer Anthony Clarkson with additional direction from the band. The album will be available on three formats — standard CD, a limited edition deluxe digi-book (featuring two additional songs), and 180-gram double vinyl.
'The Industrialist' follows the 2010 release of 'Mechanize'. Widely regarded, the album was the first release from FEAR FACTORY in six years. 'Mechanize' debuted on Billboard’s Top 100 album chart week of release and topped CMJ’s Loud Rock radio chart as programmers embraced the band’s triumphant return. Sirus XM and Headbangers Ball’s host Jose Mangin noted, “after Mechanize dominated 2010 as Liquid Metal’s Album Of The Year, North America is chompin’ at the bit to get an ear full of new FEAR FACTORY. I have no doubt that FEAR FACTORY are going to kick our collective asses in 2012.”
