MACHINE HEAD are currently hard at work on their new album slated for a summer 2014 release. The record is being produced at GREEN DAY's Oakland, California based JingleTown Recording studio by band leader Robb Flynn and engineered by renowned Juan Urteaga who already worked for bands like TESTAMENT, HEATHEN or EXODUS.
In anticipation and to celebrate Record Store Day (April 19, 2014), we’re excited to release a limited edition 10” featuring a demo version of a brand new track entitled 'Killers & Kings'. Never heard or released before, MACHINE HEAD fans have been waiting for new music from the band for the last 3 years and 'Killers & Kings' does not disappoint. Side B of the release will also feature MACHINE HEAD covering a track by the southern CA hardcore outfit, IGNITE.





“I remember growing up in the thrash scene and always wanting to hear the demo version of songs,” commented vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn. “You searched them out. Thankfully my buddy Jim was a big ‘tape trader,’ and through trading we had both METALLICA demos, EXODUS demos, bootlegs of songs sometimes ‘years’ before they came out. I knew how to play every note of »Pleasure Of The Flesh« by EXODUS, easily 2 years before the record was out! My friends and I would debate the merits of each, but we all agreed, It was so much cooler to hear it BEFORE the album is out! So we're gonna do that for you. I can't wait for you guys to hear this stuff."
This limited edition 10” will also feature four alternate covers with two specific colors, each limited to 1,000 copies each.





'Killers & Kings' 10” tracking listing:


Side One: Killers & Kings (demo version)

Side Two: Our Darkest Days/Bleeding (IGNITE cover)
