The World of Faderhead is Faderhead's fifth album. It was recorded and mastered throughout December with a deadline of 28 December. Two of the songs are set to feature guest vocalists; Daniel Myer & Shaolyn.[1] It was released digitally on March 15, and will be released on CD on the 30th.

A video was done for the song "Fistful of Fuck You". The video features Faderhead in a club, playing a 90's style arcade game, similar to the style of Streets of Rage. In the video, Faderhead has to beat various opponents to get to the club where he's playing. Combichrist, Aesthetic Perfection, And One & Caustic feature as opponents.[2]

Video game

A video game based on the music video for Fistful of Fuck You was created and released in 2014. The Beats of Rage game engine was used to program and run the game. Its design was based on images created by the music video's artists and programmed by Trev Nethers of the New York-based industrial band, Social Autopsy.[3] The game pays strict attention to the music video's content, allowing players to relive the music video first hand. It also includes playable characters, enemies and levels not featured in the music video. The game can be downloaded via Faderhead's official website.[4]

In 2018, the game was re-released as Faderhead 2.0. The new release addressed bugs, balance issues, and animation problems. All new content was also added including new modes, playable characters and the ability to play the game with two players. Survival Mode allows the player to play as Nethers from Social Autopsy in a challenge to regain health by defeating enemies and absorbing their lifeforce. Music Video Mode is a modified version of Story Mode that plays exactly like the Music Video with shorter levels, fewer enemies and a new move set for the Faderhead character. Revenge Mode gives access to the boss characters in a reversal of Story Mode where you must stop Faderhead from playing his concert. Playable bosses include Andy from Combichrist, Steve from And One, Chris from Blutengel, Graves from Aesthetic Perfection and Brian from The Gothsicles. Another new mode was also added, called Tournament Mode, which allows two to four players to compete against each other in a versus/fighting style of gameplay using all the playable characters from the game.[5]
