Heavy metal favourites Machine Head have just confirmed they have joined the Nuclear Blast Records roster as the label’s latest signing. Guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn has said the following regarding the signing:
“When I visited the Nuclear Blast compounds in both Germany and Los Angeles last year, the vibe and spirit that Markus Staiger, Gerardo Martinez and their respective teams created took me back to the spirit of the old Roadrunner Records days, back when bands like Obituary and Sepultura were changing the world with their music. Everyone believes, everyone wants it for the right reasons, it’s about creating and respecting a culture, about pioneering new ways for people to discover great music.”
Machine Head will enter the studio towards the end of October to begin recording their eighth studio album for an early 2014 release, followed by a massive worldwide tour cycle. More details will be confirmed over the coming months.
