Candlelight Records today confirms three more in-store/meet-and-greets as part of Fear Factory's ongoing Fear Campaign American Tour 2010. All four members of the band will be available to meet with fans at Magnolia Thunderpussy in Columbus, Ohio on May 30, Digital Ferret Records in Philadelphia on June 6, and Vintage Vinyl Records in Fords, New Jersey on June 10.
Fear Factory, currently on tour supporting their latest album "Mechanize," had a brief scare earlier this week when their tour bus nearly went off road while in route to Boise, Idaho. Luckily no one was injured and the band made their show at Knitting Factory Concert House without much delay. Guitarist Dino Cazares says, “We were on our way to Boise for a day off when about 8:45am our bus driver fell asleep at the wheel. He swerved to the opposite side of the road. Most of us woke up when we felt the bus on the rumble strips and then the dirt. He woke up in time to swerve back onto our side of the road and pull over.” Continuing he notes, “thank god there was no on coming cars or 18-wheelers on the road. Everyone is fine just a little nervous.”
The upcoming Fear Factory tour dates are as follows: More...
Devildriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer has checked in from the bands current headlining tour with a message to the band's fans. It reads as follows:
"It feels so good to be on a full-on metal tour again in the States. Our second tour with Thy Will Be Done and our first with Suffocation and Goatwhore. All excellent bands and a shit load of fun to get drunk with. All the shows have been amazing. Last night we played the Gothic Theater in Englewood, CO just outside of Denver. We had a great show and made our way to a club that a friend of ours works at (which means free drinks!!!!) I'm not sure what the theme of the night was at the club but I have never seen so many transvestites in one place. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!!!!)"
Guitarist Jeff Kendrick states: "Into the second week of our Bound By The Road tour (2010) edition and it is going fucking fantastic! First of all, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! I hope everyone is off to a great start of the year and I wish everyone a bright and prosperous 2010! More...

The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will introduce an additional stage this year dedicated to up and coming bands.
The third stage, sponsored by Deathcote Records, will be located at Chasers Nightclub, located behind the Palladium on the corner of Martin Luther King and Commercial streets. The main festival will be taking place at the Palladium.
“There are so many great bands and not enough time to get all of them on during the course of two days,” said festival co-organizer Sott Lee. “Adding a third stage is a great way for us to showcase some of the developing bands and it’s a terrific opportunity for these bands to play alongside some of today’s top metal and hardcore bands.”
The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, with the Atticus pre-party on Thursday, April 16. This year’s event is presented by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars and Eden Electronics. Metal Blade Records will present the main stage. Prosthetic Records will present the second stage.
The Atticus-sponsored pre-party will be a unique event that will be combining film and music, kicking off with a screening of official film sponsor Anchor Bay's film "Crowley," co-written by none other than Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson. The provocative supernatural thriller is the tale of a virtual reality experiment gone wrong, sending the soul of the British occultist Aleister Crowley into the body of a shy university professor. But even as Crowley creates all-new orgies of depraved pleasures and black magic, he is now preparing to unleash the ultimate occult event upon the world. Also showing is "Anvil! The Story of Anvil," a sometimes revealing, sometimes hilarious documentary about the legendary Canadian metal band. The movie follows best friends Robb Reiner and Lips as they make a pact to rock together forever. Their band, Anvil, hailed as the "demi-gods of Canadian metal, " influenced a musical generation that includes Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams. The film will be followed by a performance by the band itself. The pre-party will also be held at the Palladium. Admission is free with a weekend pass or $15 for non-ticket holders.
Prices this year are $40 for Friday, $45 for Saturday or $79 for a 2-day ticket that also includes free admission to the kick off party on Thursday. Tickets are available at all Strawberries, FYE Stores, online at tickets.com or by calling (800) 477-6849. Tickets are available now.
Bands scheduled to perform this year include: More...
Albany’s Heal These Wounds has issued the following update regarding the departure of guitarist Dillon Beebe:
"First off HTW and Dillon Beebe have parted ways. We want to thank Dillon for his contributions he made during his time in the band and we wish him the best of luck. In light of Dillon's departure Kyle will be switching from bass to guitar. Our dear friend Cory will take over the bizass. Also joining us playing guitar will be Brendon. Brendon played with Dave in their old band and we are excited to have him come aboard." More...
Thy Will Be Done has completed the recording of their next album, titled "In Ancient Of Days" and tentatively slated for spring release via Stillborn Records. Like its predecessor, the effort was produced, engineered, and mixed by Zeuss (Shadows Fall) at Planet Z Recording in Hadley, MA with Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed serving as executive producer. The band elaborates:
"Collectively we feel that we've just written music that we'd like to hear ourselves and we think some others will dig it; we were just eager to add fresh material and ideas to our repertoire. One thing we hope is (that) no matter where the listener is; wherever they are on their path of life — (that) there's going to be so many layers to the lyrics and music for everyone to gain something from. When making music, that's the main purpose. We're hoping that people will turn on that music and get inspiration.
"...And as promised, this album will be the most radio-friendly, cookie-cutter, chock full o' the same clean crooning chorus in every song, that from the first note you'll be sure to scream, 'SELL OUTS!' Afterall, we've decided to merge Rapcore and Funk Polka to make our sound. It proves to be the 'Easy Listening Favorite of 2009.' Oh yeah, and we've got 9 breakdowns in every song and we've managed to add 14 'Bass Drops' to each one of those tunes!
"In all honesty, I will tell you this: Long Live The Riff! We'll have more information and will be posting new material soon. Be well and thanks again to everyone who has been supporting us and to all our new friends and family."
Thy Will Be Done vocalist J Costa has posted the following message online:
"Thy Will Be Done is currently writing, re-writing, tweaking, and rehearsing new material for the next album in our home base of Providence, RI. The as-yet-untitled forthcoming effort is tentatively expected to surface sometime in early 2009 and will be the follow-up to 2007's Was And Is To Come.
"As the year comes to an end, we've started to debut new material at recent shows to gauge some reactions and so far, the results have been positive. 2008 was spent not only touring but also writing and demoing new material; throughout the whole year. Make no mistake, this was in no way a result of any negative feelings towards our debut. We're very pleased and were quite overwhelmed with the warm reception Was And Is To Come received. It is merely a result of the drive of friends with a common goal and a shared passion to create music. More...
