Machine Head is currently in the studio recording an eighth album, which will be followed by a massive worldwide tour cycle. The first production blog from the album's recording can be found at this location.

This summer Nuclear Blast Entertainment will have the privilege of releasing Machine Head’s next full-length album, the band’s debut for the label. In anticipation and to celebrate Record Store Day (April 19th, 2014), the label is excited to release a limited edition 10” featuring a demo version of a brand new track entitled "Killers & Kings." Side B of the release will also feature Machine Head covering a track by the southern CA hardcore outfit, Ignite.??

“I remember growing up in the thrash scene and always wanting to hear the demo version of songs,” commented vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn. “You searched them out. Thankfully my buddy Jim was a big ‘tape trader,’ and through trading we had both Metallica demos, Exodus demos, bootlegs of songs sometimes ‘years’ before they came out. I knew how to play every note of 'Pleasure Of The Flesh' by Exodus, easily 2 years before the record was out! My friends and I would debate the merits of each, but we all agreed, It was so much cooler to hear it BEFORE the album is out! So we're gonna do that for you. I can't wait for you guys to hear this stuff."

This limited edition 10” will also feature four alternate covers with two specific colors, each limited to 1,000 copies each.?? The track listing is as follows:

Side One: Killers & Kings (demo version)
Side Two: Our Darkest Days/Bleeding (Ignite cover)
