Fear Factory Announce Tour With Winds of Plague
After making their live debut back in early December in Brazil, it seems Fear Factory — featuring original members Dino Cazares on guitars and vocalist Burton C. Bell with bassist Byron Stroud and drummer Gene Hoglan — will be taking their show on the road around the U.S. in late March.
Dates and cities have not yet been announced for the trek, but should be revealed in the coming weeks. Openers for the trek include Winds of Plague, Dirge Within, Periphery and, on select dates, Cazares’ side project Divine Heresy.
Fear Factory’s new album, ‘Mechanize,’ will be released Feb. 9 via Candlelight Records. The CD was co-produced by the band with Rhys Fulber and mixed by Greg Reely.
The tour is expected to wrap up just before the summer, freeing Fear Factory up for this July’s Ozzfest return. The band is heavily rumored to be taking part in the festival, but no official announcement has been made just yet.
