Industrial tech metal band Fear Factory has announced a full run of N. American tour dates that will see them head from Colorado Springs in mid-April to West Hollywood in the beginning of June. Support will come from Hate Eternal and Kobra And The Lotus. The band will be touring in support of last year’s release The Industrialist (review).
Speaking with Full Metal Jackie, vocalist Burton C. Bell describes The Industrialist as, “…a very deliberate album and one that came about very naturally to us. There is something so tight about the album. Focus is the one thing that is on this record that doesn’t really appear on any of our other records. The focus of the music, the sounds, the aggression and the concept. Everything had its purpose and we knew exactly what we were doing and what we had to do.”
