May 31, 2005

BIG MACHINE have 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"!

In other news, BIG MACHINE have just added a show at The Clubhouse Tavern in Sarasota, Florida on Friday June 3. Doors are at 9:00 p.m. and showtime at 10:00 p.m.

BIG MACHINE are currently tracking new material at Florida's Southern Sound Studios with former ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND engineer Bud Snyder. Doug Kaye is producing. The songs being 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.
