So, Machine Head head into the studio to begin recording their new album TOMORROW! This is great news. One of my favorite bands, I am always stoked for new Machine Head music. Phil Demmel, guitarist, had this to say:
“Countdown: 4 days until load-in to record #8.Most excited I’ve been before an album session since my first, 26 years ago. Lots of work to do!”
Obviously, that was a few days ago. Then, rob Flynn, guitarist and vocalist, had this to say:
We load into Green Day‘s place – JingleTown Studios to start recording our New Album on Sunday.
As our guitar tech Rodrigo (aka: Shot Rod) would say,
Looking forward to this, it’s gonna be a fun album to record. We have some really, really strong songs, powerful songs. There’s no question it’s going to be a big project. So with big projects come big expectations and sometimes big “issues,” but the feeling in the band, the feeling BETWEEN the band, is so positive we’re chomping at the bit to get started. We know it will be a big undertaking but were up for it. We’re ready.
We’re approaching two decades of recording and releasing our music to you. Let that sink in for a minute… because it definitely causes me to pause.
Most bands do not get to make music for as long as we have and flourish. Most bands do not get to build an “army” of fans and friends. We have, and for one of many reasons, we refuse to rest on our laurels. There’s no getting complacent at this stage of the game. Good isn’t good enough, it has to change the world, it has to dent the universe. You won’t care if it’s anything less. We’re putting in the long, hard, boring hours of work that it takes to make something truly special.
And I have to mention it again; the feeling of 4 guys pulling together, 4 guys all on the same page, 4 guys all on the same team, man… it is an amazing feeling. I can’t remember a time when the band was this locked-in mentally, physically, and spiritually.
There’s still a waaaaays to go before we’re done, a few songs still getting wrapped up musically / lyrically…
But yeah, it begins… this weekend.
Machine Head have been in the news a lot, recently. From the firing of longtime bassist Adam Duce, the subsequent lawsuit by Duce, and Flynn (rightfully so) calling out Avenged Sevenfold, they have made some headlines.
Machine Head are hoping to have the album released sometime in 2014.
