Fear Factory tour in September


Australian dates announced.

Industrial-strength metallers Fear Factory have announced a one-off show September show in New Zealand, strongly suggesting that Australian tour dates will soon follow.

Other than the show in Auckland in mid-September, the band’s tour schedule currently features a gap between the 25th of August and the 27th of October.

With original guitarist Dino Cazares back on board after a long absence, Fear Factory toured Australia twice in 2010 visiting us to play on the Big Day Out tour and then returning later in the year as one of Metallica’s support acts, playing sets that included plenty of old stuff including highlights from Demanufacture and Digimortal.

Fear Factory will be embarking on an extensive world tour to promote their new album The Industrialist including a spot on the notorious Gathering of the Jugaloos festival in August before heading our way. According to Cazares The Industrialist is their is possibly their strongest album yet and that “it’s more ‘Fear Factory’ than anything we’ve done in years.”

When the band visited us for the Metallica tour, FL caught up with Cazares to chat about reconciliations, recriminations and remix albums.
