Machine Head reveal details for Killers & Kings

Over twenty years combined with seven critically acclaimed albums and multiple world tours to their credit, very few can deny that Machine Head are one of THE kings of metal (Basically, eat your hearts out, Manowar).

This summer Nuclear Blast will have the enormous privilege of releasing Machine Head’s next full-length album, which is also the band’s debut for the label. In anticipation and to celebrate Record Store Day (19th April 2014), Nuclear Blast will be releasing 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 will not disappoint. Side B of the release will also feature Machine Head covering two tracks by the southern California hardcore outfit Ignite. Frontman Robb Flynn comments:

I remember growing up in the thrash scene and always wanting to hear the demo version of songs. 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 two 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 colours.

Side One: “Killers & Kings” (demo version)
Side Two: “Our Darkest Days/Bleeding” (Ignite cover)

Machine Head are currently in the studio recording their eighth album for an early 2014 release, followed by a massive worldwide tour cycle.

Machine Head‘s most recent studio release, 2011’s Unto The Locust, entered The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 22 – putting them in the Top 25 for the first time in the band’s history. The album was the follow-up to the 2007 Grammy nominated metal milestone The Blackening, widely hailed as one of the finest metal albums of the last decade, which led the band to an extensive three-year tour, sharing the stage with such heavy hitters as Slipknot and Metallica.
