Jul. 01 - Rockerfella's - Bradenton, FL
Jul. 16 - Clubhouse - Sarasota, FL

BIG MACHINE recently signed an exclusive representation deal with the New York law firm Selvern, Mandelbaum, and Mintz. The firm has represented a diverse roster of many of the entertainment industy's biggest artists, including rockers VAN HALEN, GUNS N' ROSES, rappers LUDACRIS, and THE WU-TANG CLAN and even Las Vegas diva CELINE DION. The band will be heading to New York in early July for a special label showcase gig, and photo shoot.

Commented frontman Kelly Shaefer (ex-ATHEIST, NEUROTICA): "This music is the real deal. This ain't some bullshit third-rate rock and roll. This music is coming from the man himself Brian Johnson [AC/DC frontman]. If you leave this disc too close to your bottle of Jack Daniels, it'll be gone"!

BIG MACHINE recently spent time tracking new material at Florida's Southern Sound Studios with former ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND engineer Bud Snyder. Doug Kaye is producing. The songs that were recorded are: "Love Erosion", "Falling", "Shadow on the Wall" and "I Heard the Thunder". All tracks were written by AC/DC's Brian Johnson and BIG MACHINE guitarist Doug Kaye.
