Fear Factory announce Matt DeVries as new bassist

Fear Factory have announced that former Chimaira rhythm guitarist Matt DeVries has joined the band as their new bassist. Matt had recently been performing bass with Six Feet Under but he now joins the band to replace Byron Stroud who is the new bassist in 3 Inches Of Blood.

Fear Factory are currently at the mixing stage with their new album ‘The Industrialist’ while the artwork and album’s packaging is nearly complete.

Matt DeVries comments, “I have been asked by Dino and Burton to join one of my favourite bands. I have been a fan of Fear Factory since 1992 and I could not be more excited to be part of this incredible band. We have shared the stage many times together and now I’m beyond stoked to be on the same stage playing together. Thank you to all my fans worldwide for sticking by me and I will be seeing you all on the road very soon.”

Guitarist Dino Cazares and vocalist Burton C. Bell add, “we are very excited to have Matt playing bass for Fear Factory. We feel he is a great addition to our touring line-up. He has been a friend for a very long time and he is a great musician who will be a perfect instrument in the FF machine.”
