Dino Cazares has issued a new statement regarding the controversy surrounding the crowdfunding campaign he launched for Fear Factory’s upcoming album. You can read that below. This news comes after Burton C. Bell recently distanced himself from the campaign.
Cazares said the following:
“Despite what you may have heard about the Fear Factory gofundme page It is not a scam or created to pay anyone’s personal legal fees.
A lot of people have jumped on the negative band wagon that some of you fail to see the truth.
I’ve taken some of the most harshest criticism about me ,some coming from members of the band some from ex members of the band and from fans.
I dont understand why all this senseless drama because at the end of the day we all want the same thing and that is to enjoy a bad ass Fear Factory récord ,that is going to benefit us all.
I’m going to tell you the truth about this album.
3 years ago in 2017 we finished a album that was given to the record company complete with artwork. This record may have never seen the light of day because of all the legal issues that were surrounding the rights to the Fear Factory name.
After I regained my full rights to the name I decided to take this 3 year old album and make some much needed improvements.
Thanx to all the donations that we’ve received so far we are able to hire the same production crew that we’ve had on Genexus.
All I want to do is make this record the best record it could be with some amazing people working on it. It deserves a killer production to make this a classic FF album. I’m so exited for everyone to hear it because it really sounds amazing.
It’s that simple. That is all I wanted to do.
Despite all the shit I’m getting I still love you all and I’m not mad at anyone. Please help us reach our goal.
