Fear Factory were expected to have a new album out in early 2015, but that time has come and gone. But today comes word that their ninth studio album, Genexus, will finally be out worldwide on August 7th.
Said founding guitarist Dino Cazares in a statement:
“The sensation of finalizing our newest album is one of relief and joy, wrapped within a massive whirlwind of excitement. We really feel this is a very special FEAR FACTORY album. While being careful not to replicate ourselves, this album still has a very classic FEAR FACTORY vibe that we feel will appease both old and new fans.
The aggressive, melodic and industrial elements are all intact and shine more than ever.
Burt and I produced the album with Rhys Fulber co-producing. Damien Rainuad and Giuseppe Bassi handled most of the keys and pre-production. We also enlisted the masterful metallic skills of Andy Sneap for an amazing mixing job!”
Fear Factory signed with Nuclear Blast last September, after two albums released on Candlelight Records. The band will be hitting the road in support of Coal Chamber in late July, along with Devil You Know and Jasta.
