Hört jetzt rein.

Dieser heißt „Circle The Drain“ und steht nachfolgend für euch zum Anhören bereit.
Hört jetzt den neuen Song „Circle The Drain“ von Machine Head
Frontmann Robb Flynn kommentierte den Hintergrund des neuen Songs wie folgt:
„The song is inspired by an acquaintance of mine who returned from Afghanistan only to have his relationship fall apart with his girl. She had messed around on him, then got paranoid about him messing around on her, and drove him crazy. We had a conversation on Valentine’s Day and he said to me „they were just circling the drain”… the phrase struck me. A few days later I incorporated it into the song I’d been working on.“
Das ausführliche Statement dazu findet ihr weiter unten über den eingebetteten Instagram-Post.
Machine Head befinden sich anlässlich des 25. Geburtstags ihres Debütalbums „Burn My Eyes“ noch immer auf Jubiläumstour. Auch zu uns nach Deutschland kommen sie im Mai nochmal für einen zweiten Rutsch. Die Termine findet ihr hier.

The new song "Circle the Drain" is out! Listen: 👉 https://nuclearblast.com/mh-circlethedrain 👈 Guitarist / vocalist @RobbFlynn describes the song as the anti-Valentine's Day song. "The song is inspired by an acquaintance of mine who returned from Afghanistan only to have his relationship fall apart with his girl. She had messed around on him, then got paranoid about him messing around on her, and drove him crazy. We had a conversation on Valentine's Day and he said to me "they were just circling the drain”… the phrase struck me. A few days later I incorporated it into the song I’d been working on. It was a strange parallel with my life at the time, having recently had two band members quit, and even more bizarrely, two long-time couple friends of my wife and I, also divorce. It was break-up season, and it played out with friends taking sides, people not being invited to certain events anymore, social and emotional pressure, and all the typical stuff that happens when a relationship goes bad. Watching this guy pull through it, helped me pull through my own upheaval. The lyrics to 'Circle The Drain' came out of that frustrating time. It's a sad song about relationships gone bad, but accepting that it's over, and making yourself move on. I wrote it in a more metaphorical tone, as I didn’t want it to be about my life, but to be about anybody’s life who may be going through a rough time like that. It may not be a song that connects with everyone, especially those in a solid relationship, but if the day ever comes when your life goes awry, this song will be a lifeline for you, something to help pull you up out of that dark place. The irony that he and I had the original conversation on Valentine's Day, and are now releasing it on Valentine's Day isn’t lost on me, it really is the anti-Valentine's Day song.” ⠀ The song was produced by Robb Flynn, co-produced by Zach Ohren at Sharkbite Studios, Oakland. Joel Wanasek handled post-production, while Russ Russell at Parlour Studios UK handled the song mix. The track was mastered by Greg Grimaldi (“Through The Ashes Of Empires”) at Oasis Mastering. Drumming by Navene Koperweis. Art was created by Christian Sampson.
