Fear Factory has just announced who their replacement vocalist will be. The industrial metal band tried out over 300 vocalist and chose to go with Milo Silvestro (formerly of Dead Channel), who they felt fit in best with the group.

Former longtime vocalist Burton C Bell left due to irreconcilable differences between himself and founding guitarist Dino Cazares in 2020.

Guitarist Dino Cazares shared the following:


It's time to introduce the world to our new vocalist, Milo Silvestro. The search was long and meticulous, but I know for sure we got the right guy.

It is a big week for us in Fear Factory as we make our final preparations for our return to the live stage touring across the US beginning February 25th on the "Rise Of The Machine" tour. We can't wait to get out on the road and start kicking some ass.

Silvestro also added:

This is a huge opportunity for me, I've been a fan of the band for many years and it feels very surreal but I'm excited to be part of it. I know I have some massive shoes to fill but I'm here to do it in the best way possible and give justice to the vocal legacy of this legendary band.

Fear Factory is set to kick off

You can see Fear Factory along with their new vocalist on the upcoming Static-X tour which kicks off this week.
