Metal giants Machine Head have shared a stripped back acoustic version of ‘Circle The Drain’, the band’s latest single that was released earlier this year.
Vocalist/guitarist Rob Flynn performs the track, and he explains how it came to be in this reimagined state.
“When the pandemic hit in March, and all Machine Head tours got cancelled, I started doing free ‘Acoustic Happy Hour’ shows on Machine Head’s Facebook page to get out the pent-up energy, entertain some friends, have some laughs and have a few drinks every Friday. As we had just released our new song ‘Circle The Drain’ fans started asking for me to play it, so I started messing around with it and came up with a re-imagined version of it. It got a phenomenal response… People genuinely loved it, and were continually asking me to release it, and so I recorded it a few weeks back in my home studio, and here it is.”
