Machine Head's Robb Flynn Updates Fans On New Album

(Gibson) Robb Flynn has posted an update on the new Machine Head album. But he is not rushing anything. In fact, any album could be a while. Flynn posted, "As you may have noticed, there aren't any, 'Hey, we're in the recording studio' updates happening. That's because we're not! A few journals ago, I said we'd hit the studio at end of October, and while we tried our damnedest to make that deadline, the fact is, we weren't ready.

"We started writing in January of this year, but between the bassist auditions, teaching [new bassist] Jared [MacEachern] all the old tunes, rehearsing for headline dates, doing [Rockstar Energy Drink] Mayhem [Festival], getting Jared up to speed on the new tunes, and back into writing mode in September, we just didn't have the songs yet. We probably only wrote music for 4 out of those 9 months. If we went in [back in October], it would have been rushed.

"This is an important record for us. With a new label, a new member, and this being the follow-up to Unto The Locust, all eyes are on us. This record cannot be rushed or hurried, it needs to be great. It needs to be classic Machine Head. It needs to be a timeless album.

"Our new label, Nuclear Blast, agreed and said, 'Hey, if it comes out in April or August, who cares? In 5 years, they're only going to remember if it's great or not. It was refreshing and we were grateful that's how they felt. We are now going in the studio the first week of February 2014.

'We already have 5 or 6 song demoed. Some are in more finished stages than others, so we'll continue demoing through the New Year. Sh*t, who am I kidding? We'll probably be demoing up until the day before we hit the studio, LOL!

"Thanks for the patience, my friends." more on this story
