New Machine Head Music!

machine head - killers and kings

Machine Head debuted their new 10″ on Record Store Day (April 19th), which included two demos of tracks to be included on their new album, which is expected to be released later this year. The first track “Killers and Kings,” though it might be inspired by Game of Thrones, sounds incredible. The second track is a cover of Ignite’s “Darkest Days/Bleeding.”

On his blog, “Diary of a Frontman,” Robb Flynn express his admiration for the Ignite track, which is justification for cover it… I guess:

I remember exactly where I was the moment I listened to this Ignite record though. I was with Dave McClain and our then video guy Danger Dan, and we were leaving Sharkbite Studios, going over the Bay Bridge, driving out to a show at The Fillmore in San Francisco. As soon as we left Sharkbite from a day of recording, we put this album on, and HOLY S–T! From the opening song, the 1-2-punch of ‘Our Darkest Days / Bleeding,’ it gave me f—in’ goosebumps!

With a new album coming out, you can expect a new tour, and the first dates have been revealed:
