Machine Head has checked in with the following update about working on a forthcoming album:

"Album cover is done! And album title too! We'll probably make an announcement soon enough, but we are really freakin' stoked with it!!!

"Been working with a new artist named Marcelo Vasco. We got turned on to Marcelo’s work through Gerardo at Nuclear Blast and let me tell you…this kid has delivered some fucking glory! He took updated MH ‘Lion Crest’ that Rafal Wechterowicz (we call him Raf for short) had designed with us, and added this whole other dark trip to it. We've decided to base the album package off of an old Alchemy book, with aged, sepia-toned pages on the insides, alchemy wood-cuts.

"As we talked about before, one of the things we were so excited to sign with Nuclear Blast about was the next level, special packages they do for their bands. This Machine Head set up may be their biggest yet! Just the album alone will come in deluxe CD, vinyl gatefold, and the piece-de-résistance, a red foil and leather bound 48-page media book with CD. Some album bundles will come with a hard resin Machine Head diamond logo around the media book. There will be something akin to an 'ultra bundle' as well, which will include a completely custom Epiphone Guitar (with the new lion crest artwork) courtesy of Epiphone Guitars. This shit is ridiculous!!"
