Machine Head have announced their new album will be called “Through The Ashes Of Empires”. The band intend to record in Oakland, California at the Sharkbite Studios, with Robert Flynn & Andy Sneap producing. Did you know? Andy Sneap previously worked with the band on their 1997 release ‘The More Things Change’. Sharkbite studio owner Mark Keaton will engineer the recording. Come late July/early August, the album will be mixed by Colin Richardson at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire! How has it been working with new guitarist Phil Demmel? Dave McClain tells, “Phil being in the band has been incredible. Having two guitarists with similar talents has opened up a lot of things that the band hasn’t explored in years. To say we’re excited about this album would be an understatement. I think when people hear what we’ve been up to they’ll be blown away!” The band have named 5 tracks to date: 1. Bite The Bullet 2. All Fall Down 3. Left Unfinished 4. In The Presence Of My Enemies 5. Descend The Shades Of Night ‘Through The Ashes Of Empires’ is due to be released this Autumn.
