Sanctity's Jared MacEachern Joins Machine Head

Machine Head have recruited Sanctity vocalist and guitarist Jared MacEachern as their new bass player, who they hired after an exhaustive bassist search earlier this year.

Drummer Dave McClain had this to say about the audition, "Jared came in to the audition and just killed it! Besides being able to nail the bass and vocal harmonies, he also had the vibe and personality to make it feel like we were a BAND again. It was a great feeling and we all knew he was the guy."

Frontman Robb Flynn had this to say, "We really wanted a guy that was hungry for this, someone who could live and breathe this with us. Dave would joke around that we didn't want to get someone too green that'd be like 'oh my god, is this a dressing room?!', but we also didn't want someone who was too jaded by the whole thing and 'been there done that'.

"We thought the perfect guy would be someone who'd paid some dues, who had done 9 or 10 crummy van tours, and wasn't broken by that, but inspired to keep going and play music, and in many ways that was Jared. I mean hell, the guy's only rode in a bus for two nights, one of which was with us! It brings a really cool level of appreciation to the table, and it shows where his heart's at."

MacEachern adds, "I'm ready to get to work! This tour is going to kick ass and the new tunes are heavy as sh*t! I'm SO looking forward to making good music with good dudes!"

MacEachern is currently rehearsing with the band for the upcoming Mayhem festival tour and the band also plan to begin pre-production for their next studio album soon.
