Band update fans on progress of 'kick-ass' seventh effort

Machine Head have revealed that their forthcoming seventh studio album will be released in September.

The Californian band are currently holed up in Green Day‘s Jingletown Studios in Oakland recording the new release.

In a recent interview with Horns Up Rocks!, Machine Head drummer Dave McClain stated: “We had some time off and we started itching to get back in and start writing just whatever was flowing out. And it’s killer, man. It’s super-exciting.”

“We’re all really, really excited about what happened, what came out,” adds McClain. “We feel like we’ve got another kick-ass album on our hands and we can’t wait for everybody to hear it.”

Vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn added: “We’ve been in there [the studio] for three days. Dave McClain‘s been laying down the drums, killing it, and we’re getting going on the journey. In July we’re out on the Mayhem [Festival] tour, and then the record drops in September.”

The forthcoming release will be the follow-up to 2007’s ‘The Blackening’.
