MACHINE HEAD release live video for “Now We Die” from upcoming >Catharsis< bonus DVD

San Francisco Bay Area metal titans MACHINE HEAD, will release their highly anticipated new album »Catharsis« on January 26 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Now, the band has released the live video for the song ‘Now We Die’ from the bonus DVD (21 song live concert filmed live at The Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA, 2015) of the limited edition of their upcoming album »Catharsis«.


The brand new track from the album entitled ‘Beyond The Pale’, can be heard here: https://youtu.be/MVdflCH76t4

The band recently started a competition in which they encourage their fans to come up with a music video for said track. Surf to http://nuclearblast.com/mh-beyondthepale for all details.

“I feel like metal could really infiltrate the mainstream with this album. And it needs to… now more than ever. A lot of consideration went into making these songs more identifiable to a wider audience. Simplifying ideas, simplifying hooks, really concentrating on story-telling as opposed to ‘brutal poetry’ or whatever. And while I’d love to say it was all some grand plan, there was no ‘plan’” Flynn adds laughing. “You never know where you’re going to end up whenever you start writing a record… you just write… but I tell ya what… we ended up with a landmark here. Whenever you finish an album, you always feel proud, but this time… we’ve got something really special. We can feel it. We know it. »Catharsis« could really elevate our genre.”

»Catharsis« was produced by Robb Flynn and recorded, mixed, and co-produced by  Zack Ohren (FALLUJAHALL SHALL PERISH) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. Mastering was handled by Ted Jensen (HATEBREEDALICE IN CHAINSDEFTONES) at Sterling Sound, New York, NY. Cover photography was created by Seanen Middleton.

MACHINE HEAD wrapped up the touring cycle for their first Nuclear Blast Entertainment album »Bloodstone & Diamonds« in March 2016 with a whopping 283 concerts on 5 different continents around the world. Around 250 of those shows were performed as “An Evening With MACHINE HEAD” with no support bands and performances often lasting 2 1/2 to 3 hours in duration, much to their fans (called “Head Cases”) delight.

Three tours of the United States (with many dates sold out in advance), three tours of The U.K. / Europe, (including multiple dates in Russia and Greece), shows in Mexico and South America, a completely sold out run of 9 Australian / New Zealand shows, sold out dates in Japan, plus their first ever plays in Taiwan and Thailand, and all without any festival performances which the band publicly announced they would stop performing at in 2014.

»Bloodstone & Diamonds« debuted at #21 on the U.S. Billboard charts and has gone on to sell 285,000 copies worldwide.

MACHINE HEAD‘s latest track ‘Is There Anybody Out There?’ released as a stand-alone, digital-only, non-album release became their #2 most streamed song ever on Spotify with 9 million streams in less than a year, and cracked the Top 40 on the Active Rock chart in the United States. It marks the first time for any Nuclear Blast artist to enter what is widely considered to be the “official rock chart” for the United States, and is significant considering there was no physical track sent to retail.

Their controversial video for opening track ‘Now We Die’ is at over 2 million views and can be seen here:
