It's an odd synergy that Tesla Motors decided to release the video that they did today - on the eve of the release of FEAR FACTORY's GENEXUS (out 8/7 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment). For over two decades, Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares have been bringing us tales of robotic uprising that often makes THE TERMINATOR look tame, and today comes this - a Tesla "Charger Prototype Finding its Way to Model S." Watch the video below, and then we'll discuss this a bit more...

Some of you may recall that I have a bit of history with FEAR FACTORY, having had the opportunity to work with them on some videos for their last album, 2012's THE INDUSTRIALIST. This summer, FEAR FACTORY is back with a new album on a new label, with their Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut set for release on August 7th. GENEXUS is that album, and today the first single arrived, hitting the net with a new lyric video by UK-based editor Scott Rudd. Check out "Soul Hacker" right now...

Today's the day - FEAR FACTORY has officially released THE INDUSTRIALIST. You might recall that I did some work for the band a couple of months ago, as they hired me to create the official 'album trailer' for the release (check out the story behind it here). As a longtime fan of the band, I've been excited for this album for ages - even before I got the opportunity to work with them in complimenting their creative vision. I've had the THE INDUSTRIALIST for a few weeks now, and caught the band live last month in Chicago. If you were ever a fan of FEAR FACTORY before, go buy THE INDUSTRIALIST. You won't be disappointed.

You ever have one of those moments when you know something awesome but can't tell anyone? Well, for me - the SHOCKWAVE FESTIVAL Tour 2012 is one of those things... but now I can tell you! This is a cool announcement for me, as FEAR FACTORY and DIRGE WITHIN are both on the tour, and if you've been following The Rock Father's adventures, then you might already know that I recently worked with both bands, having cut the album trailer for the new Fear Factory, and the lyric video for the new Dirge Within. Needless to say, I'll be checking out this tour. Check out the official announcement below for all the details. It's also important to note that ADDITIONAL DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED, so don't get too bummed if your hometown isn't on here just yet. It might be added soon!

People still ask me pretty frequently what exactly I do for a living. I work all the time, though some of my neighbors still think I don't work at all, and some family members still give me the 'deer-in-the-headlights' look at every gathering, prompted by my responses to their own questions of ''What have you been working on?'' Then there's the even more annoying ones that hit me with twenty questions about just how exactly I do certain things. It's very frustrating that they'll never understand or respect the many adventures that I get to have as The Rock Father™ and beyond. My latest adventure? I was given the privilege of creating the new FEAR FACTORY video.
