Greetings from Brisbane, Australia. I have just traveled about 15 hours from LA, traversing into the future Fear Factory’s Regeneratour. First show is June 2. We are very excited to return to perform for all of our Aussie fans.

I am very pleased to announce to everyone that The Industrialist Graphic Novel is SOLD OUT on the website. This is amazing because we have sold all the novels in under a year! I have brought the remaining 10 numbered copies with me from the USA, to sell at each show in Australia. I will put out only 2 a show. First come first serve!

I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks to those who made The Industrialist Graphic Novel a success. Without my amazing team this dream would have never become reality; Sherry Kecskes, Noel Guard, Vachel Shannon and Brandon Holmes.

Of course I’d like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that supported this independently released novel. Your enthusiasm and interest has really made this a year to remember for me. Speaking to fans on the road about the story was truly inspirational for me. From spirited debates about social issues, to philosophical conversations on the nature consciousness. It’s these moments that revitalize me while on the road.

I have brought copies of Ascension of The Watchers Iconoclast EP. This independent vinyl release is the very first recordings of AoTW done by John Bechdel and myself. This vinyl will be available alongside The Industrialist.

As for new AoTW news, We have 11 new songs in demo form. I am very pleased with the direction of the new music. I feel that John, Edu and myself have found our sound and we wish to develop that sound further. Sonically energized and lyrically poignant. My goal is to improve the recordings after FF is done touring so that we can find a home for our music.

Noel Guard and I have been discussing the next story for The Industrialist. This will be the first time that I worked with the artist as we come up with a story. I have a great title idea that was inspired by a Frank Miller novel. ( That is the only hint I am providing right now )

Please keep checking the website for more news. There are still other items for sale on the website that are going fast!

If you have any suggestions about what type of item you would like to see on my website, please do not hesitate to let me know!

All the best
Burton
