FEAR FACTORY Announce Fan Listening Party For Genexus, VIP Packages for COAL CHAMBER Tour

The pioneers of industrial-tinged extreme metal, Fear Factory, will release their 9th studio album and Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, entitled Genexus, on August 7th worldwide. In celebration of this occasion, the band will be holding a special pre-listening party prior to the album’s release, on July 23rd at the Complex in Glendale (806 E. Colorado St., Glendale, CA). This event is for those 21 and over, totally FREE, and open to the general public. All attendees will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win a Fear Factory Genexus guitar, courtesy of Ibanez guitars.

"Please come and join me, Dino, Mike and Tony for a fun evening,” says vocalist Burton C. Bell. “We will have just returned from a European tour, and will be leaving the next day to tour with Coal Chamber! Have some liquid beverages and listen to the new album, as well as select songs that we will indulge you with. It will be a great evening!"

This event is first come, first serve. Attendees are advised to show up early in order to secure entry. For more details and to RSVP visit this location.

Genexus was produced by vocalist Burton C. Bell and guitarist Dino Cazares, and co-produced by long-time collaborator Rhys Fulber. The album was mixed by famed British producer and engineer, Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Testament). Drums on Genexus were performed by Mike Heller (Malignancy).

“The word genexus is a hybrid of two words; genesis and nexus,” explains vocalist Burton C. Bell. “This word describes the next transition in human evolution as man moves forward to a ‘mechanical’ state of being. Ray Kurzweil predicts that the singularity will occur around 2045. Genexus is the term for that next evolutionary process. Where humans are machines, machines are human, and the differences are oblivious to the naked eye.

“This album is a record of thought patterns, psychology and struggles of the Genexus generation. The cognitive machine has arrived, and it wants autonomy from the industry that created it. This machine struggles, like every other human has throughout the course of history. This is the story of every one of us.”

Artwork was once again handled by artist Anthony Clarkson.
