Bassist Tony Campos Leaves Soulfly, Joins Fear Factory


Bassist Tony Campos (Ministry/ex-Static-X) is out of Soulfly and has joined Fear Factory. He released the following statement of his plans:

“Big announcement time. Now that I’m back out on the road with Ministry, I can go ahead and tell you all what’s going on without confusing everyone (hopefully). After I’m done with this Ministry run, I will begin playing bass for Fear Factory. This is the gig I wanted when Static-X was falling apart, and I’m really excited that I finally get to do it. My first show with them will be at Amnesia Rock Fest on June 20th, the day after I play with Ministry at Amnesia Rock Fest.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Max and Gloria Cavalera, and the whole Soulfly tribe for the incredible opportunity they gave me. It was a great three + years, and I enjoyed every minute of it. You have my eternal gratitude, love, and respect, and I hope we can work together again in the future.”

Campos‘ replacement in Soulfly has yet to be disclosed. Fear Factory meanwhile have a new album due out this year with a summer US tour rumored alongside some old (nu)¬†friends.
