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?” A video for the track has just been filmed, and several photos from the set can be seen below.
MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn revealed during an appearance on a 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.”
“Is There Anybody Out There?” will mark MACHINE HEAD‘s first new release since the arrival of the band’s latest album, “Bloodstone & Diamonds”, which sold around 18,200 copies in the United States in its first week to debut at position No. 21 on The Billboard 200 chart. Issued 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.
