Machine Head have recently shared a teaser for a brand new song, and today (12th), the group has officially unveiled a video for their latest single, “CHØKE ØN THE ASHES ØF YØUR HATE.” The track reveal comes with the announcement of the band’s new album, ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN, which is scheduled to arrive on August 26th via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2018’s Catharsis marks the group’s overall 10th album, which is a concept record set in a decimated futuristic wasteland where the sky is stained crimson red, as the press release explains:

‘’ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN’ is a 13 track concept album set in a decimated futuristic wasteland where the sky is stained crimson red. The crux of the story is based on two main characters: 

Character #1 Ares: (pronounced Aries), our main, who loses the love of his life (Amethyst) and goes on a murderous rampage against the vile sect responsible for her murder.

Character #2 Eros: (pronounced Arrows) the perpetrator, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and becomes radicalized in the aftermath. Eros goes off the deep end manifesting his own killing spree.”

 

Machine Head mastermind Robb Flynn further describes:

“Thanks to my 2 teenage boys my family has become obsessed with this awesome Japanese anime series called “Attack On Titan.” The album’s concept was loosely inspired by the series in the sense that in the storyline, there is no “good” or “bad” guy, both characters believe they’re doing the right thing as it applies to their being, but make no mistake, both are committing acts of pure atrocity and evil. The opening track “SLAUGHTER THE MARTYR” is basically our character #1’s origin story.”
