San Francisco Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD held a listening party for their new album, "Unto The Locust", last night (Saturday, September 24) at Last Rites Tattoo Theatre & Gallery in New York City. Video footage from the event can be seen in two parts below (courtesy of Shockblast Media).
"Unto The Locust" will be made available on September 27 via MACHINE HEAD's longtime label Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at GREEN DAY's Oakland, California's JingleTown Recording compound, with guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn handling production duties for the third consecutive time, and mixing done at JingleTown by engineer Juan Urteaga and Flynn (who flew back to Oakland from the road on every day off during the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival), along with Colin Richardson and his U.K.-based team of Carl Bown and Martyn Ford. "Unto The Locust" was tracked and mixed over the course of four months and saw the band bring in a string quartet by the name of Quartet Rouge, who ended up on no less than three of the album's seven songs.
