MACHINE HEAD Part Ways With Management Company!

December 28, 2001

MACHINE HEAD have left Rick Sales Management (i.e. SLAYER, SEPULTURA) of their own accord and are currently seeking new representation. The split, which is said to be amicable, comes less than two years after the two parties first began working together and follows the release of the band's most critically-panned album to date, Supercharger, which has thus far failed to light up the sales charts in a manner consistent with some of the group's previous studio offerings (between its release date of October 2nd and December 23rd, the CD has shifted 33,661 copies in the US, according to Soundscan). Despite this setback, MACHINE HEAD are vowing to carry on into the new year, beginning with a US headlining tour, which is scheduled to kick off next week, to be followed by the release of the band's first live CD, which is tentatively due at the end of 2002. As-yet-untitled, the live album was recorded at the group's performance at London's Brixton Academy on Saturday, December 8th, and it is due to be mixed by producer Colin Richardson (i.e. FEAR FACTORY, NAPALM DEATH, CANNIBAL CORPSE) during January.
