Fear Factory Engulfs America with Trademark Cybernetic Fury on Summer Headline Tour

Drummer Raymond Herrera-helmed Mischief Invasion Soundtrack In Stores August 8

The pioneering entity known as Fear Factory is on a rampage. Having completed a spring run on the Jagermeister Tour with Slipknot and Chimaira (with Hollywood Reporter deeming their set “crushing”) and causing jaws to drop with their groundbreaking debut release for Liquid 8 Records Archetype, the band is primed to ignite America on their upcoming headline tour.

Harnessing a style many have emulated but none have duplicated, Fear Factory’s latest offering, Archetype was received to exceptional sales (moving over 100,000 units and debuting in the Billboard Top 30 Chart), radio success and critical praise. Computer Games Magazine: Now Playing says, "Fear Factory is at its productive best." FHM Magazine attests that the return is "Heavier than ever!" Metal Edge Magazine cites it as "One of the most important albums of the year." Modern Drummer heralds the album as a “sonically fearsome return.” And Revolver Magazine calls it "Raw and ripping."

Archetype’s debut video “Cyberwaste” topped the CVC Rock/Alternative Charts is still in recurrent rotation on Fuse TV’s Uranium and MTV2’s Headbanger’s Ball programs. Fear Factory recently filmed a video in downtown Los Angeles for their new single “Archetype” under the direction of Cesario “Block” Montano and acclaimed film director Michael Alan Kahn, notable for his work on such films as Die Hard, Die Hard II, Lethal Weapon 2 & 3, and Se7en. The radio single for the track is currently charting at Active Rock.

Now, the band is ready to take their inimitable technically-proficient presence to the next level with a full headline tour (with Sworn Enemy and Mastodon in support), which kicks off July 25th at the Hellfest Festival in New Jersey. Drummer & videogame guru Raymond Herrera is visibly excited about the prospect: “The Jagermeister tour was amazing; we had a great time with the Slipknot and Chimaira guys. Now, on our headlining tour, fans will get to see the full Fear Factory experience.”

When not shredding stages with his inhuman drumming technique, Herrera also supplies music & sound effects to films & videogames via his own company Herrera Productions. His latest project is conceiving the soundtrack to Mischief Invasion, the fourth entry in the popular Mischief ‘reality’ street racing film series in conjunction with Techademics Films and Liquid 8 Records. The soundtrack will be released on August 8th. Fear Factory is no stranger to the world of film soundtracks, as the band’s music has been featured on such blockbuster hits as Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Freddy Vs. Jason, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Herrera approached Teckademics to create a soundtrack for Mischief Invasion, as he was awestruck by the wild antics contained in the film. Likening the movie to “the Cannonball Run of 2004,” Herrera was immediately inspired and collected an assortment of cutting edge and innovative artists to compose full-throttle material for the soundtrack; some of whom whose work had previously appeared on the Emmy-winning series Sex In The City and the films XXX and National Security. Herrera and Fear Factory guitarist Christian Olde-Wolbers also composed four tracks for the release; in addition to including a new remix of the band’s latest single “Archetype.”

Herrera Productions brings a wealth of experience to capturing the road raging energy of racing, having provided music and effects for such videogames as Carmageddon (for PC), Test Drive 5 & 6 (for PC, PlayStation, & Dreamcast), Demolition Racer (for PlayStation), Test Drive Off Road Wide Open (for PS2 & Xbox), RalliSport Challenge (for Xbox), and the forthcoming games Test Drive Crosstown (for PS2) and Gran Turismo 4 (for PS2, PC, Game Cube & Xbox). On Thursday, July 15th, the Half-Life Radio Show on the GameShout Radio Network is airing for a two-hour Fear Factory special and interviewing live with Herrera to discuss the band’s innovation and evolution.
