Video footage of guitarist Dino Cazares of Los Angeles cyber metallers FEAR FACTORY discussing the band's recent tour-bus scare can be viewed below. Also available is footage of the group's May 22, 2010 performance in Denver, Colorado (all clips produced by Superskum).
FEAR FACTORY's tour bus nearly went off road last week while en route to Boise, Idaho. Luckily no one was injured and the band made its show at Knitting Factory without much delay. Cazares said, "We were on our way to Boise for a day off when about 8:45 a.m. 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." He added, "Thank god there was no oncoming cars or 18-wheelers on the road. Everyone is fine, just a little nervous."
FEAR FACTORY has scheduled three more in-store appearances/meet-and-greet sessions as part of its 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, Pennsylvania on June 6; and Vintage Vinyl in Fords, New Jersey on June 10.
FEAR FACTORY's latest radio single, "Final Exit", made impact last week at hard rock/metal stations nationwide. The song is expected to follow the success of earlier singles "Powershifter" and "Fear Campaign".
