Burton C. Bell Says He Is Not Involved With Fear Factory’s GoFundMe Campaign

As previously reported, Fear Factory recently launched a GoFundMe campaign for their new album. However, vocalist Burton C. Bell has now issued a statement saying he is not involved in the campaign.

Bell said the following:

“Let me be clear I am not part of, nor am I benefiting, from any GoFundMe Campaign.”

A fan then asked guitarist Dino Cazares about Bell’s comments and he responded with the following:

“He sang on the record he’s finished his parts. The donations is for live drums ,mixing and mastering plus keyboards the production team and performers need to get paid for there work. Burton definitely benefits from a great sounding record.”

Cazares has since posted another statement regarding the campaign as well:

“This is to address some of the controversy regarding the FEAR FACTORY GoFundMe page. It is not a scam. All donations go toward covering newly incurred production costs and not anyone’s personal legal fees.

On the previous version of the album recording, which was completed in 2017, it had programmed drums. I decided to not make that mistake again and had Mike Heller perform live drums on the record. I later realized I needed to re-track guitars and bass to fit better with the live drums. I also decided to add new keyboards from Rhys Fulber, Damien Rainaud, Igor Khoroshev, Giuseppe Bassi and Max Karon.

Damien Rainaud took over production duties for all this, and Andy Sneap is also handling the mixing and mastering. They all did an amazing job on ‘Genexus‘, and I decided to bring them back for the new album. Burton‘s lead vocals, which were also recorded in full in 2017, will remain on the new version of the album.

FEAR FACTORY has exceeded its limit in borrowing money from the record company to complete the new version of the album. For this reason, and this reason only, a decision was made to ask for outside donations.

Fear Factory would like to thank everyone for there continued support.”
