||Fear Factory are forced to cancel their US mini-tour set to kick off this week.
Fear Factory's management (more precisely Scott Koenig of King Artist Management) explained that the reason for the last-minute postponement concerns a "family emergency" of one of the band members. The band's manager went on to say that the shows are "currently being rescheduled for early April." The rescheduled dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
Affected shows include:
Dec. 29 - Tempe, AZ - The Club House

Dec. 31 - Fort Worth, TX - The Rail Club
Jan. 01 - Tulsa, OK - The Marquee Theater

Jan. 05 - Albuquerque, NM - Sunshine Theater
Jan. 06 - Tucson, AZ - DV8
