Earlier this week, industrial metal legends Fear Factory teased a track from their upcoming new album, along with their new singer. Now, the band have revealed the title of the record, and have announced a release date for the first single.

Fear Factory’s new album will be titled Aggression Continuum, and will be available for preorder April 16th. That day will also mark the release of the album’s first single, “Disruption.”

Check out guitarist Dino Cazares’ announcement via Twitter below:

On Sunday, April 4th, Cazares tweeted a picture of Fear Factory as is, featuring himself, newly-joined bassist Tony Campos of Static-X fame, and drummer Mike Heller, with the caption, “Here is the band photo as of now till we add the new singer.”

Dino also tweeted a preview of some of the band’s new material, saying that a first single from the upcoming new incarnation of Fear Factory would be released on April 16th. The riff sounds ultra-deathy, so fans should be ready for an extreme side of the band this time around:

Dino then went on to deny a bunch of fan theories/requests for Fear Factory’s next vocalist, announcing that it’s not Howard Jones, it’s not Tommy Vext (“I hear he’s doing a Retrumplican solo tour in Texas w/ his band members wearing masks on stage so the focus is only on him,” wrote Dino), and it’s not Jeannie Ford from Conflict. In fact, according to one of the responses Dino left for a fan who suggested Jones, the singer might be someone we’ve never heard before:

Keep your eyes peeled for more info about Fear Factory’s new vocalist in the near future. Meanwhile, last year marked the 25th anniversary of Demanufacture, for which Dino sat down with The Pit to discuss the album’s process and legacy. Check out our one-on-one with the guitarist here:
