Fear Factory launches GFM campaign

2020-09-11 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 18 Comments
Industrial-tinged extreme metal pioneers Fear Factory launched a GoFundMe campaign for their long-awaited tenth album. According to Blabbermouth, the album is due to be released next year by Nuclear Blast Entertainment and it will be produced by Damien Rainaud / Fear Factory and mixed by Andy Sneap.

Band's message on the GoFundMe page goes as follows:

Calling all Fear Factory fans!

As the smoke clears on what has been a very long and arduous period for Fear Factory, we would firstly like to acknowledge our fans for supporting us and being very patient as we again find our footing after a long absence due to an intensive legal dispute.

We are relieved to report that the legal matter surrounding the Fear Factory name has now come to an end and the band is now able to move forward.
It has been a long road in getting to this point and it has certainly not been without it's challenges both professionally and personally.

As a result, it has caused a significant blow and thrown a wrench into the gears of the Fear Factory machine by creating a heavy financial burden of debt and crushing legal fees associated with the many disputes on the road to reaching a final outcome.

As it stands, Fear Factory are back, but are now facing an uncertain future financially and we need your help to restart the machine to get FF back up and running and firing on all cylinders. The mounting legal hardship and ensuing legalities have caused both the delayed completion and release of our 10th studio album, so we've decided to take the unique step of reaching out to our fans to ask for help through a Gofundme page.

If you are able to contribute your donation will go directly towards finishing the new album. We are currently in the post production stage and have yet to complete drums, mixing, mastering and finalizing artwork for a 2021 release.

Any monies raised above our goal will also go towards producing new music videos for the upcoming album which we are excited to get underway as soon as possible.

We understand that the current situation with the global pandemic may make it difficult for a lot of our fans to contribute at this time, as we are also feeling the financial hardship due to the corona virus and recognize the struggles we are all facing at the moment.

We'd like to thank you all for the love and continued support over the last 30 years and hope that together, we can reach our goal.

Please share and help spread the word and also keep a look out, as we will be posting regular updates on the new album as it progresses for everyone to get a peak inside the gears of the machine and a look at the recording and post production process.

Stay safe, Stay positive and know that you have got the power to effect a change.
The machine is still alive!

Thank You

Fear Factory

Burton said in a comment (which he deleted later) that the vocals were done in 2017,he is not a part of this and that this is probably about Dino's debt

So much drama with these guys lol

Cazares released the following statement earlier today:

"This is to address some of the controversy regarding the FEAR FACTORY GoFundMe page. It is not a scam. All donations go toward covering newly incurred production costs and not anyone's personal legal fees."

"FEAR FACTORY has exceeded its limit in borrowing money from the record company to complete the new version of the album. For this reason, and this reason only, a decision was made to ask for outside donations."

I sincerely hope he's being honest.

Despite saying it's a scam, Burton is saying that the gofundme is being used to cover Dino's legal fees as well. So at least that part matches up.

edit: maybe not

Burton will be on it as from what he said the album had originally been finished in 2017, and Dino says the GFM is to rerecord parts of that album and redo the production but keeping the vocals.

I get the impression though that while it may not be a total scam, at the very least Dino was very misleading about the status of the band in the original post. If he wanted people to trust him I have no idea why he wouldn't try to be as clear about the situation from the beginning. He was trying to give the impression "they're back" but he and Burton are clearly not communicating anymore and this was not done with Burton's agreement.

I get the impression Dino's posts aren't lies as such but he missed out half the truth of the situation from the beginning which doesn't inspire confidence when asking people for donations

Although I enjoyed the comeback albums, well Mechanize and Genexus (the industrialist was a dud imo) this comes across as a total money pit and makes me not interested.
I was excited in 2017 when they announced Monolith. Dino just over his career has come across as a total slimy business man.

I wouldn't trust Dino at all. Look at what happened with Byron Stroud. The guy simply isn't honest.
