MACHINE HEAD: Making Of New Song 'Is There Anybody Out There?' Part 1 (Video)
February 17, 2016
Back in October 2015, San Francisco Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD went into Trident Studios in Martinez, California to record a new song called "Is There Anybody Out There?" The first making-of clip featuring footage from the studio can be seen below.
MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn revealed during an appearance on a recent installment of HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta's official podcast, "The Jasta Show", that "Is There Anybody Out There?" will be released as a standalone track. He said: "It's just gonna be digital. It's gonna be just a single song. It's gonna be a... just on Spotify and probably iTunes, but not any physical product around it."
MACHINE HEAD was forced to end its show Monday night (February 15) at La Cooperative De Mai in Clermont-Ferrand, France after only five songs because Flynn was suffering from a "chest flu and hacking cough." The band's show Wednesday in Luxembourg has been postponed for the same reason.
MACHINE HEAD's latest album, "Bloodstone & Diamonds", sold around 18,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 21 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on November 10, 2014 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the CD was produced by Robb Flynn and Juan Urteaga, and like the last seven of eight MACHINE HEAD albums, was mixed by Colin Richardson. Additional tracking, editing, and mixing was done with Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, TESTAMENT, ARCH ENEMY) and Steve Lagudi.
