Fear Factory Shall Bring Fans The “Demanufacture” Tour

I’m catching up with a few tour announcements after having been entrenched in the Halls of Javits for the recent Toy Fair 2016 and since some great stuff was recently unveiled I figured it was better late than never. That being said, one of the tours will find the Industrial Metal masters in Fear Factory delivering their “Demanufacture” album in full. They’ll be joined by Soilwork who are a band that always delivers so check out the poster and the dates below and then I’ll return for some closing thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I mentioned above, I have been a little behind based on a grueling convention so I will be keeping these thoughts brief. Of course there isn’t much to be said about a tour by Fear Factory with support from Soilwork. That is a crushing pairing for sure and since FF is delivering one of their seminal works with “Demanufacture” I think that anyone who attends is going to have a blast at the shows. What do you think of the touring package? Will you be attending? Let me know in the comments. Oh yeah and as the missing dates come to light I shall be appending the post. Stay tuned.

The Scoop: Fear Factory are clearly the leaders in the cause for Industrial Metal enlightenment and for many years they have rallied the fans with exciting show after exciting show. For their 2013 tour the band has decided to perform their “Demanufacture” album in its entirety and to up the ante they are bringing along both Hate Eternal (as direct support) and new Metal greatness in Kobra and The Lotus. The show will be he a heart-stopper for sure and that excites me to announce that thanks to the folks at Livenation we shall be putting a few lucky PiercingMetal readers into the show for free. Read on below how to take part in this coolness.

The Inagural Run Of The Shockwave Festival Is Cancelled :(

This might bother some of you….

It was just about two months ago when we posted a blog announcement here in the Musings about the inaugural edition of the Shockwave Festival (see that post HERE).  The event was to feature what appeared to be a co-headlining Fear Factory and Voivod (even though it seemed that FF would close all the shows and hence get a longer set) along with Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Havok, Last Chance To A Reason, The Browning, Revocation, Forged In Flame, Vildjarta, and Dirge Within.   Sounds pretty cool if you are into most of or all of these bands right?  I felt that it was also cool that another new festival was coming to pass because that showed promise that others would be able to follow suit if the mood struck them.  Then around the tail end of June the word got out how Revocation, Forged In Flame, Vildjarta, and Dirge Within had all dropped off the tour but it was never really made that clear as to what the reason was.  The revised tour poster is below and obviously no longer featured those bands names. I appended these changes into the original blog posting for good measure since we like to speak about tours based on our heavy live coverage on the main site but with this getting weirder it prompted a second post.

Stranger than that was the announcement just the other day (7/3/12) that Voivod had pulled off the tour and they came right out into the open and said “Shockwave tour is no longer as advertised, Voivod really wanted to be touring but the situation was out of the band’s control and the tour producers could not live up to the promises.” Those are some pretty heavy comments. That left the fans who had purchased tickets with five bands less than the originally promised eleven. No one seemed to be added to the mix and to me this was just short of a Summer Slaughter lineup in terms of bands being offered to the general public.

Presenting the Inaugural Edition of The Shockwave Festival

As readers of the PiercingMetal site and companion blog are very aware, we love to go to and cover concerts for the sake of larger awareness and just get a general kick out of seeing bands deliver their goods on the live stage. To me it’s very, very, exhilarating when it all comes down to it and I just find inspiration when I write about them or share photos from the performances with you all. That being said, it gives me great pleasure to announce another new festival that is launching this year for the summer of 2012. Presenting the Shockwave Festival (queue dramatic music).

The inaugural edition of the festival will feature both Fear Factory and Voivod as the apparent co-headliners and I guess depending on your level of excitement about each of them would gauge the level of anticipation in the overall event. Whatever the case may be it joins the ranks of the Rockstar Mayhem Fest, The Summer Slaughter Fest and also appears to be a good replacement for the no longer running Sounds Of The Underground Festival that ended in 2007. Check out the list of the rest of the performers on the event.

The Bands: Fear Factory, Voivod, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance to Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browning, Forged in Flame.
