Venue Issues Statement Regarding 'Near-Electrocution' Of FEAR FACTORY Frontman

Representatives for the Luxembourg venue Den Atelier have issued a statement regarding the alleged near-electrocution (see previous report) of FEAR FACTORY frontman Burton C. Bell during the band's first-ever concert in the country, which took place Saturday night (May 6). The statement reads as follows:

"FEAR FACTORY had a shortcut on one 110/220V trafo of one of their own guitar amp, which caused the fuse to blow three times during their set (the two opening acts went well) Nobody got hurt, no ambulance etc needed. The tour manager informed us after the show that the problem has occurred before on their tour."

FEAR FACTORY are touring in support of their latest album, "Transgression", which was released last August through Calvin, an imprint of Liquid 8. The record includes 11 songs, all produced by Toby Wright (ALICE IN CHAINS, KORN, METALLICA).
