EP set for release 10th July 2020
Los Angeles-based, grunge/rock revivalists, Broken Machine, announce new single “Fly Me to the Sun,” the title track to their forthcoming EP, due out July 10, 2020.
With a past stained by indulgence, debauchery, and substance abuse, Broken Machine channel their inner demons into their brand of brooding Post Grunge.
The EP itself is anti-authoritarian/anti-establishment stance and in support of freedom of choice in how one lives his/her life and uses his/her body. Douglas has had a history of drug addiction in his past, and was even imprisoned for several months due to heroin use. But, after a long path of trials and tribulations, he quit heroin cold turkey after a heavy dose of mushrooms. He firmly believes that, “Psychedelics are a path to healing and the government is well aware of the effect they have on people’s minds and the expansion and awareness they bring, so of course they’re made illegal.”
Produced by Elliot Lanam and Broken Machine and mixed by legendary American record producer, Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Slipknot) and Mastered by Ted Jensen (Green Day/Alter Bridge), the EP shines in both compositional talent and production value. Broken Machine take pride in their ‘one take’ approach that refrains from production flattery and autotune gimmicks, which many would argue is a breath of fresh air.
With an in-your-face rhythm section, soaring guitar leads, and evocative vocal melodies and harmonies, Broken Machine’s sonic palette is equal parts moody, cathartic, and angst-forward, think Alice In Chains and Stone Temple Pilots meet Foo Fighters.
Stay tuned for more announcements leading up to Fly Me to The Sun, out this Summer.
