There Seems To Be Some Confusion Regarding Fear Factory’s New Album Title

Fear Factory are planning to release a new album this year, but it looks like there is some confusion regarding its title. Back in November, Burton C. Bell was interviewed at “Headbanger’s Con” and he revealed that the effort will be called “Monolith,” while also sharing the cover art. Here’s what he said:

“Fear Factory, we have a new record. It’s done. It’s delivered to the label. And we’ve got some technical difficulties, and once that’s finished, the record’s gonna come out. It’s gonna be called ‘Monolith‘. It’s a great record.”

However, a fan asked Dino Cazares about it on Twitter and he said he was “not sure what [they were] talking about.” He also added the following in a since deleted tweet: “Not sure why he would say that’s the title of a album that is same name of a ex band members band?.” So at this point, fans will just have to wait until official details are confirmed.

Working with Al over the years has been a blast and a dream come true, and to be part of another Ministry album was another milestone in my career. Hanging, laughing, playing with AL, JB, Sin, Cesar, Tony and Joey is always a good time. I’ve known all these characters for some time, and they will never get old! I expect this tour to be super fun. Like the songs goes, “my whole life is making music with my friends, and I can’t wait to get on the road again…”

Jordison added:

“This looks to be a landmark tour with an amazing lineup and a killer new record and we look forward to these shows and celebrating a new chapter in the history of Ministry. But more importantly, the current status and future of Ministry‘s music and legacy. So, to the past, present and most importantly to the future, stay alert as this is not to be missed and we hope you will join us at these shows. We’ll see you on the road very soon.”
