Fear Factory Planning To Reveal New Vocalist In February

During an appearance on Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta‘s “The Jasta Show,” Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares offered an update on the band’s new singer. The guitarist says the group are planning to reveal the identity of the mystery musician in February.

Cazares said the following:

“Fear Factory singer and music will be coming just before the [group’s North American] tour with Static-X. End of February is the first show, so just before that we’ll be releasing the single and the singer. And then boom — right on the road.”

He went on to say that he has already been working with the singer for a year:

“It’s just a lot of developing. You know, Fear Factory is precious to a lot of people, and so I’ve gotta make sure that it’s right. I wanted to release some tracks a while ago with the singer, but then I had nothing behind it — no tour or anything like that — so the hype was gonna die down quick. So I wanna do it around a tour; that way you’ve got something to work. And I just didn’t wanna release his name too quick, because no one’s gonna care by the time I release a track a year later. So I want it all to be done together.”

Dino Cazares On Waiting To Announce Fear Factory’s New Vocalist: “Some Things You Just Can’t Rush”

Fear Factory’s Dino Cazares has commented on the lack of information regarding the band’s new vocalist. The guitarist says the group are waiting to make the announcement, because there are “some things you just can’t rush.”

Cazares said the following:

“SOME THINGS YOU JUST CAN’T RUSH !

People make it seem like right after our vocalist quit in 2020 that FF immediately found a replacement, THAT IS NOT THE CASE !!!

It took over a year to find someone, and then when we did find that someone you have to work together to make sure your styles and ?ideas are compatible or that we just simply get along etc.. There’s a lot that goes into this.

FF is not going to just pick anyone without going through a trial period. It wouldn’t be good to find out a year from now to realize you don’t get along or that it’s just not working out.

It’s not smart to rush things and prematurely release new music cause in order for this to work it has to be done right.

It’s like you falling in love to fast, 6 months later you both get married ,then you move in together and realize you made a mistake by rushing into the relationship that ends in a divorce.

SOME THINGS YOU JUST CAN’T RUSH”

Dino Cazares To Relaunch Divine Heresy With Once Human’s Lauren Hart

Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares has announced the return of his Divine Heresy project. Once Human’s Lauren Hart has been recruited as the band’s new singer, but a bassist and drummer are still pending.

Cazares commented:

“Latest Update:

I’m almost ready to write some new material w/ singer Lauren Hart. I will be handling all guitar and bass. I currently do not have a drummer or bassist for live or possible tracking, so any professional musicians in the USA interested let me know.

Let me be clear about this: I will not be using any former members. With that being said R.I.P. Joe Payne one of the best bassist/guitarist.

We are currently record company free so all of this will be supported out of our own pockets.

Ps. This does not take away from any other things that I’m currently working on”

The Silverblack Share Music Video For “Judgment” Featuring Burton C. Bell (Ex-Fear Factory)

The Silverblack have premiered a new video for the title track of their latest album “Judgment.” Notably, that song features ex-Fear Factory vocalist Burton C. Bell.

The band commented:

“Doing features is pretty common these days, but we wanted this to be quite special and meaningful. We consider this album the culmination of a process we started a bunch of years ago with the first record: in the beginning, we didn’t know where we wanted to go, musically speaking, so we simply developed and evolved our style year after year, album after album.

It’s been a natural process: as soon as we finished this album we understood this is what we wanted to do since the beginning of the band and to put the proverbial icing on the cake we decided to recruit a singer that with his band started this kind of music in the first place.

Burton‘s tone is unique: he is the voice of industrial metal and we wouldn’t be here playing this kind of music if it wasn’t for bands like Fear Factory who broke down boundaries within styles paving the way for what came next, so having him on our record is truly an honor and a one of a kind experience. His distinctive vocals brought the song to a whole new level and we can’t wait for people to hear it.”
