Nuclear Blast Records have announced extreme industrial metal pioneers FEAR FACTORY have re-signed their contract and are ushering in a new era.

Initially signed to the label in 2013, the band have since released the albums ‘Genexus, Aggression Continuum’, and ‘Recoded’.

FEAR FACTORY’s Dino Cazares comments:
“This is a new year and a new chapter for FEAR FACTORY. We are off to a great start because we have re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records, and our A&R legend Monte Conner, who originally signed the band in 1992.

It is a great feeling to be with a label that gets us and who has always had our backs, especially when we needed them the most. Prepare for the future of FEAR FACTORY.

Nuclear Blast A&R Monte Conner states:
Working with FEAR FACTORY right from the start of their amazing career has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my own career. I was thrilled to be reunited with them when I signed FEAR FACTORY to Nuclear Blast in 2013, and to be able to continue that journey once again for round #3 feels incredibly satisfying. I have believed in Dino Cazares from day one, and I know he is going to deliver a killer new album with all the trademarks that have made and still make Fear Factory one of the most pioneering and unique sounding metal bands of all time.

Last year, FEAR FACTORY released Recoded via Nuclear Blast. Like the innovative one-two punch of Demanufacture and Remanufacture, Recoded brilliantly reimagines the songs from 2021’s landmark, Aggression Continuum, with diverse ferocity.

The remixes stand as a mesmerising counterpart to the band’s tenth album. Produced by co-founder, songwriter, and guitarist Dino Cazares, and mixed/mastered by Damien Rainaud (DRAGONFORCEONCE HUMAN), Recoded boasts new interpretations of Aggression Continuum songs.

Recoded featu res long-time collaborators Rhys FulberZardonicTyrant Of DeathRob GEE, BLUSH_RESPONSE, and Dualized.

The album is the fourth FEAR FACTORY album with artwork by Anthony Clarkson.
