Heavy metal outfit Machine Head has some new music on the way and are planning on releasing a new, three-song single “Arrows In Words From The Sky,” which will be out on June 11. Not much is known about the new song, however Navene Koperweis of Entheos, Whitechapel and Animals As Leaders recorded the drum parts, while Zack Ohren produced the project. The track was recorded in Oakland, California this past January.
Machine Head has been hard at work for the past year, as they released the songs “My Hands Are Empty,” “Stop The Bleeding” featuring Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage and “Bulletproof” throughout the latter half of 2020. “Stop The Bleeding” was also accompanied by a music video, which was directed by Mike Sloat and filmed in Kingston, New York and Oakland, California.
Back in January, members of Machine Head uploaded a photo of themselves in a recording booth, hinting at new music. That same month former Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel discussed his work with the band and claimed he had no interest reuniting with member Robb Flynn, who remains the only founder still involved with the group.
“It got to be where the talks that came along with it, it was unbearable,” Demmel explained in a past interview. “It was just like, ‘Man, I’m punching the clock here. I’m gonna show up. What songs do you wanna play? Okay. Cool. We’re gonna play the songs. When are the dates? Okay. Cool.’ For the last cycle, it was the paycheck. That was my living. I didn’t like my job anymore.”
