All right, there may be some confusion amongst y'all as to what exactly is going on with Fear Factory in regards to touring. Hopefully this should clear it all up. Before last week, Fear Factory were slated to hit the road with Papa Roach for the 2nd ½ of the RAID THE NATION tour. This was to happen starting April 24th and to go though May 12th. Due to medical reasons, Papa Roach had to cancel - their drummer has an arthritic condition disabling him from completing the rest of the tour. Most likely they will not be hitting the stage again until this summer's Ozzfest. However, the show must go on, and Fear Factory is now putting a tour together of their own. Confirmed dates thus far are as follows - 4/24 - Grand Rapids - Orbit Room 4/25 - Detroit - Harpo's 4/27 - Duluth - Taproom 4/28 - Clinton, Iowa - Pig Pen 4/29 - Lawrence, KS - Bottleneck 4/30 - Chicago - House of Blues 5/02 - Springfield, MO - Southwest Missouri State University note - Switched and Roadrunner labelmates Hinge A.D will also be on the bill. After that, Fear Factory is confirmed to be playing with Slipknot for 4 of Slipknot's 5 May U.S. shows. They are as follows - 5/4 - Cedar Rapids - Five Season Center 5/7 - Green Bay - Brown County Vet Arena 5/8 - Fargo - Civic Memorial 5/9 - Sioux Falls - Sioux Empire Fair Expo Beyond that, expect DIGIMORTAL life for Fear Factory on the road the lengthen.
