Fear Factory is sticking with Nuclear Blast Records for the foreseeable future.
The label and band announced Monday, the two sides have agreed on a contract renewal 10 years after the band initially signed with the label. That initial agreement saw the band release three albums — Genexus, Aggression Continuum, and Recoded — through the label.
Recoded, Fear Factory’s label remix album, produced remixed takes of songs from Aggression Continuum, two of which came in the form of ‘Hatred Will Prevail – Monolith Remix‘ and ‘Disobey – Disruptor Remix.’ The remix of ‘Hatred Will Prevail was composed alongside longtime Fear Factory collaborator Rhys Fulber while the band’s remix of ‘Disobey’ was composed along famed electronic music artist Zardonic.
Specifics of the contract were not released through the news release announcing the contract renewal.
Dino Cazares, Fear Factory guitarist and founding member was upbeat as he talked about the contract renewal.
“This is a new year and a new chapter for Fear Factory,” Cazares said. “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.”
