Fear Factory escape bus crash

Fear Factory last night escaped a tour bus crash without injury when their vehicle was involved in a road incident in Germany.

They were travelling to tonight’s show in Munich as their European tour in support of latest album Genexus continues.

It follows two more serious crashes in the US last week, where The Ghost Inside’s driver was killed and members of Hinder’s party suffered broken bones.

Fear Factory guitarist Dino Cazares reports: “Everyone is okay, just a little shaken up. It doesn’t help when it’s 4.30am and snowing outside!”

The band have just launched another episode of their tour vlog, covering their visit to Paris in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks. They return to the UK in December.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
