FEAR FACTORY Filming Music Video For 'Expiration Date'

Los Angeles industrial metallers FEAR FACTORY are filming a music video for their song "Expiration Date" with director Tommy Jones (KATAKLYSM, SOILWORK, LAMB OF GOD, CARCASS, TESTAMENT) of Videohammer Studios. The clip is expected to make its online debut in the coming weeks.

"Expiration Date" is taken from FEAR FACTORY's latest album, "Genexus", which was released on August 7, 2015 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The follow-up to 2012's "The Industrialist" was co-produced by longtime collaborator Rhys Fulber, along with guitarist Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C. Bell and mixed by Andy Sneap (ARCH ENEMY, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD). Artwork was once again handled by Anthony Clarkson. Drums on "Genexus" were performed by Mike Heller (MALIGNANCY).

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bell stated about "Expiration Date": "I'm a big fan of melodic rock bands like U2 and even SISTERS OF MERCY and I've always integrated that influence into our music. It's funny because back when we first started, people heard this crazy death metal with screaming and then these clean vocals and they went, 'What the fuck is this?' They hated it. Then later, kids who were too young to know us in 2000 heard us and thought we were ripping off KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, so you can't win. With 'Genexus', we didn't want to do away with the melodic vocals, so we approached every song in a new way and used a combination of growls, melodic screams and clean singing. For 'Expiration Date', the music just didn't call for death metal vocals at all."

FEAR FACTORY will embark on a U.S. headlining tour later this month. Support on the trek, which will see the band perform its classic second album "Demanufacture" in its entirety, will come from Swedish metallers SOILWORK.
