Like Moths To Flames have set a November 08th release date for their forthcoming full-length effort. In addition to that, the band have been forced to drop off of the “Ignitour” (Ice Nine Kills, An Early Ending, etc.) as a result of personnel changes and hurricane Irene.

The group issued the following statement on the matter:

“Due to the departure of our bass player, Aaron Douglas, combined with a delay in the studio completion due to Hurricane Irene, we regret to inform everyone that we will have to drop off the upcoming INGNITOUR with Ice Nine Kills and An Early Ending. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but without a solid lineup, we don’t want to disservice our fans in any capacity.

We are going to finish up at the studio, head home and prepare for our two upcoming fall tours: Close Your Eyes/The Color Morale tour and then Thrash and Burn. We’re super stoked on how our record is turning out and can’t wait for you guys to hear it. We’re working on a plan to release a few tracks prior to our November 8th release date”

As you read above, or maybe you didn’t, the band have parted ways with their bassist Aaron Douglas. In turn Eli Ford (ex-My Ticket Home) will join the group on guitars, while Aaron Evans will step down from guitars and move over to bass. How cruel of them, didn’t they realize Ethan White is still looking for a new gig?

New Details Available For Machine Head’s “Unto The Locust”

Stoked Machine Head‘s forthcoming new album “Unto The Locust“? Then read on as there are new details aplenty to be found in the newly-released bio for the effort, which is due out through Roadrunner on September 27th:

“And so it begins… 18 tracks of a capella vocals sung by guitarist and lead vocalist Robb Flynn to a haunting, somber melody sung completely in Latin. The words he’s singing? “Sangre Sani” (Blood Saint), “Bellator Inferni” (Warrior of Fire), “Caede” (Murder), “Edemarde” (Suicide) and ending with the whispered “death,” accentuating part one of a three-movement Sonata in C# entitled “I Am Hell.”

The narrative within the language is goosebump-worthy subject matter: the tale of a female arsonist is played out in three movements after fellow shredder-in-arms, lead guitarist Phil Demmel suggested writing a song about an arsonist to Flynn. As Flynn would discover in his research, “female arsonists are considered the monsters of the psychological field, because where man commits horrible acts out of anger or for control or domination, when a woman does so, the only explanation for this incomprehensible behavior… is love.”

As the eight-minute-plus opener fades out to the sounds of dual-classical guitar and cello one thing is very clear: Machine Head have every intention of carving their own path, marching forward with little concern for what other bands within their genre might be doing. With their seventh album Unto the Locust, Machine Head have fans and critics from around the globe swarming around them to witness the game-changing aural destruction that they are set to unleash.
