Machine Head Premiere “Bulletproof” Lyric Video

Machine Head have shared a lyric video for their song “Bulletproof.” This track is from the band’s latest EP “Civil Unrest.” That effort also comes with “Stop The Bleeding,” which features Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach. Robb Flynn said the following about “Bulletproof”:

“The lyrics for ‘Bulletproof’ were finished in the aftermath of not only the Ahmaud Arbery murder at the hands of white supremacist, but everything twisting out of control in our world. The isolation and craziness of the pandemic, the lockdown protesters storming government buildings with AR-15s, as well as the blatant lies and conspiracies pouring out of our political leaders’ mouths, hour by hour, day after day.”

Original Machine Head Drummer Tony Costanza Passes Away

Tony Costanza (ex-Machine Head, ex-Crowbar, etc.) has sadly passed away. The drummer was 52 years old.

Costanza’s former Crisis bandmate Afzaal Nasiruddeen confirmed the news with the following statement:

“It is with a very heavy heart that I have to accept and inform everyone concerned that I lost my brother, band mate, home boy and family today.

Tony Costanza was one of a kind. A man with a huge heart, love and loyalty for the ones close to him.

I cannot relate to this reality of loss yet. I know he had a lot of admirers, and I was one of his biggest. He would have literally taken a bullet for me. Thats the kind of gangster brother he was.

Tony died in his sleep this morning so I am sure he was at peace and in no pain.

I wish his Mother all the strength she can muster as she will need every ounce of it.

I will be starting a GofundMe page for her and Tony‘s funeral expenses. Please help if you knew him and care.

Please hold your loved ones close as the sense of loss is insurmountable sometimes.

Tony my friend, I will love you and cherish our memories together, forever. Hope you are in a better pace now. Rest In Peace.”

Chris Kontos, who replaced Costanza in Machine Head back in 1992, has since commented as well:

“R.I.P. Tony Costanza. I’m thankful that you and I remained in contact over the past 27 years. Im so sad to hear about your passing bro.

After I played on the very first MH demo ever some time in June 1992 I moved to NYC for a short time. In that time Tony became the first drummer of Machine Head. They did a demo and a video for Fuck It All. He played the first string of live shows/parties in the Bay Area.

When I came back home in October 92′ I actually was Tony’s drum tech for a few shows. Shortly after that the drum position became available for what ever reason it makes no difference now, that’s when I became the second drummer for MH. We wrote some more songs together and then recorded the ‘Fuck It All’ demo that got the band signed. He came up with some really great drum parts. He had a very powerful style and it was a challenge to put my own spin on his contributions to the music and for sure kept a few of his parts.

Tony was a very kind person and always supported and encouraged me over the years with music and then with BMX. We have both confided in each other when we hit hard times over time. Im thankful for his friendship and brotherhood. He was a great drummer. Our legacy is forever connected by our participation in MACHINE HEAD and the Fuck It All/Burn My Eyes 1992-1995 moment.

Be thunder bro…be thunder!”

UPDATE: Machine Head’s Robb Flynn has now paid tribute to Costanza:

“So sad to hear about Tony Costanza passing away today.

The first 6 month of Machine Head’s existence happened because he joined.

I began talking to Tony around March 1992 for the first time. I can’t exactly remember how we got in touch, he was from Las Vegas and this was before the Internet, before cell phones, it’s possible that a guy who used to work for Vio-lence name Joey copobianco put me in touch with him.

We started talking on the phone about Machine Head, and eventually he relocated to the Bay Area. It seemed in a lot of ways, he was ready to start a new life, he has been the singer for the early-Grindcore band Papsmear and I had actually met him the year prior with Mitch from Napalm Death when Mitch, Shane and him came up to a show in the Bay Area

It’s a little foggy, but I want to say he might’ve moved in with me for the first few weeks he was up here. One hilarious memory I have, is of him staying the night at Genevra‘s apartment, we all got super drunk on purple Kool-Aid and fucking MOONSHINE, and apparently he had eaten some kind of Chinese squid-based dish earlier that night, later on, hammered out of his mind, threw up purple squid all over her carpet. Genevra was pissed for a minute, but we couldn’t help laugh hysterically about it later on, it was just so funny to see all these little purple squids all over the floor.

I had already fleshed out a couple of the early MH songs on the drums with my friend Gary, and then later on a whirlwind 2 day jam with Chris Kontos, but that was the only time that we had heard the songs played as a band.

So to have Tony there, regularly jamming “Death Church”, “Blood For Blood” and “Fuck It All” at the Emeryville warehouse in a room we shared with 6 other punk rock bands was pretty thrilling… Some of the songs that he worked out with us from-the-start would’ve been “A Thousand Lies”,”I’m Your God Now”, “Nation on Fire” and “Rage to Overcome”, and even part of a “Davidian” riff.

Tony was a character, funny, kind of a fabulous disaster, but a good guy with a great heart. He didn’t click with one of the band guys though, so there was always like a weird tension when he was around. But we played our first few shows with him at Mike Scum’s Woolsey house in Oakland, which ended up being Machine Head’s first kegger party/show.

We also played our first official club show with him at the Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas, filmed our very first video for the song “fuck it all“, recorded part of a rehearsal tape/demo with Eric Wong at Laughing Dead’s studio, and we also played the LA metal fest at Gazarri’s in Hollywood which was notable for the fact that we played twice, to 20 people each time, but the 2nd time, Dino from Fear Factory was there, Igor from Sepultura, the Biohazard dudes were all there, and Rick Hunolt from Exodus (all in town for a Foundations Forum), along with our friends Andy and Gary.

Chris Kontos was originally my first choice to be in Machine Head, but at the time he was pretty busy with multiple bands (Attitude Adjustment, Grinch, and Verbal Abuse) and it looked like one of them (VA) had a real shot at getting signed. So Chris went away for a while, and in that time we got Tony.

After a minute, Chris came back into the picture and volunteered to be Tony’s drum tech, (though truth be told, Chris had his eye on getting IN Machine Head more than actually helping Tony out), and basically confessed as much to Rick / Exodus while he was doing our lights at the metal fest.

Later that night when Chris told us he was up to join MH at our friends Gary‘s house, it was kind of a no-brainer.

Tony saw the writing on the wall, and quit soon after.

It was only a short 6 months that he was with us, but in many ways he helped form so many of the songs on Burn My Eyes into what they would become.

I was always grateful for everything that he did.

Tony was also a member of Crowbar during the early 2000s, and appeared on the band’s 2001 album “Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form”. He played with the band Crisis and I’d like to thank Azfaal for letting me know about Tony today. To see him still rockin’ a Machine Head shirt in that photo meant a lot.

We maintained a friendship throughout the 27 years since he was in the band. We talked a couple times a year, he definitely had more than a few health problems, and he did enjoy his partying… He was a stubborn son of a bitch.

He would tell me later on that “he regretted the decision, but that it was always an honor to play in his ‘favorite band ever’”.

It chokes me up to write those words…

Afzaal has set up a GoFundMe to help with his funeral expenses… If anybody would like to donate, both Tony’s family and I would appreciate it.

Machine Head Officially Cancel European And Australian Tours

Machine Head have officially cancelled their European and Australian tours. The dates were previously postponed, but they have now been scrapped completely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Robb Flynn issued the following statement:

“IMPORTANT TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT.

Hey guys, Robb here. Hope you and yours are doing well and are staying healthy through all of the craziness.

It is with great disappointment and frustration that we must inform everyone of the (not so shocking news) that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, rescheduled tour dates for 2020 of both Europe and Australia have been cancelled.

These dates will not be rescheduled a third time, and all Machine Head tour dates have been pushed back indefinitely.

Venues unable to open or currently operate at capacity, along with travel restrictions, and potential quarantines has forced this decision onto us. At the moment, zero venues on the tour have been allowed to reopen, and are not expected to for the foreseeable future. As the Coronavirus continues to ravage the world, 17 of the 19 countries for the EU tour have banned US citizens, and vice-versa.

As you will know the majority of these dates have been rescheduled once already from the original onset of the pandemic, but without any sign of a likely time when these shows can be playable or a miraculous vaccine appearing, we are making the responsible decision to cancel all our forthcoming shows.

Full refunds will be available from point of purchase.

Until now, almost daily efforts have been made to figure out a way to keep the tours intact, these last 4 months have been a head fuck of major proportions, we had no idea and no blueprint of how to address many of the issues we were facing.

As I have implied to you all, we lost a staggering amount of money on the US tour, money we were hoping to make up on the 2nd EU run. And while you absolutely made it worth it, as each and everyone of you crazy motherfuckers who came out to the U.S. shows gave your blood, sweat, and tears (beers) for this band, now that these dates are officially off the table, we’re gonna have to tighten our belts, and dig in for the long haul.

On behalf of both the band and management, I want you all to know how grateful we are for your continued support of Machine Head, it was a genuinely amazing doing this last go round of “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary dates for you all. People often say metal fans are the most loyal and passionate in the world, Head Cases are that TIMES TEN!!!

We do not know what the future holds, but want nothing more than to get back on the road, put on some MONSTER 3 hour shows for you guys, and RAGE with you all whenever this mess ends.

Sincerely hope to see you sooner rather than later.

Robb and Machine Head”

Machine Head Premiere New Songs “Stop The Bleeding” Featuring Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach & “Bulletproof”

Machine Head have released a new digital single titled “Civil Unrest.” The effort comes with two new songs including “Stop The Bleeding” (feat. Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach) on the a-side and “Bulletproof” on the b-side. You can find an official video for “Stop The Bleeding” and a stream of “Bulletproof” below:

Notably, Machine Head will be donating a significant portion of the streaming proceeds from “Stop The Bleeding” to the Grassroots Law Project. Robb Flynn said the following about that track:

“I wrote and sang the lyrics on Wednesday, May 27th 2020, the day that the four officers who murdered George Floyd were (originally) not charged with anything. This day was engulfed in protests and riots across America. I drove into Oakland past large demonstrations already happening and in a fury wrote down everything I was feeling after watching the horrific footage. Within hours, what I wanted to say, what I needed to say had been recorded in the song.

I decided to sing it over a song called ‘Stop The Bleeding’, that we had recorded back in December. 2018 with Jared [MacEachearn] and Carlos Cruz [Warbringer] on drums.”

“I had been speaking with Jesse for maybe six months about singing on the song, as it always had a little bit of a Killswitch vibe to me. Unfortunately (or fortunately), our schedules hadn’t lined up, but with the subsequent lockdown from coronavirus, we had time to make it work. After what happened to George Floyd, I sent him the lyrics I’d written and he replied saying he was ‘100% on board.’ Jesse is someone I consider to be a pioneer and in many ways, one of the men who changed the face of metal. His contribution to this song made it extremely powerful and it’s an honor to have him be a part of it.”

Leach added:

“Being asked to be part of this song is an honor. Yes, because it’s Machine Head, but more importantly, this is a message that needs to be heard and spread. These issues concerning abuses of power and racism are timeless. I have written about these previously and I’ll write about them again. I think Robb really nailed this one, both lyrically and sonically. My hope is this song helps awaken those who hear it. Robb has been a frequent voice of the voiceless in these times, so teaming up with him is a no brainer. We need more of our metal community to speak out on social issues and help raise awareness, especially during these crucial times. Music is the soundtrack to our lives; it transcends language and culture. This is the reason we as musicians need to do our part to spark thought and discussion on these types of issues. We can make a difference through music and we can help stop the bleeding.”

Flynn also said the following about “Bulletproof”:

“The lyrics for ‘Bulletproof’ were finished in the aftermath of not only the Ahmaud Arbery murder at the hands of white supremacist, but everything twisting out of control in our world. The isolation and craziness of the pandemic, the lockdown protesters storming government buildings with AR-15s, as well as the blatant lies and conspiracies pouring out of our political leaders’ mouths, hour by hour, day after day.”

Robb Flynn On New Machine Head Material: “The Lyrics Are Pissed Off As Fuck”

During a recent appearance on Knotfest.com‘s “Mosh Talks With Beez,” Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn discussed the band’s new material. According to him, the lyrics in the new music “are pissed off as fuck.”

Flynn said the following while discussing how the ongoing anti-racist protests and the coronavirus pandemic have impacted his creativity:

“I walk around in a fury all day. I walk around in a fucking rage all day, and the lyrics that I write, and the music that I’ve been writing, all of it is very reflective of that. And even if the music isn’t super thrash or whatever you wanna call it, the lyrics are pissed off as fuck.

“As you get older in a band, the best option is to just shut your mouth and make middle-of-the-road statements that don’t really offend anybody and not really take a stand on anything as opposed to when you’re young and full of piss and vinegar and you don’t give a fuck. I think it becomes the logical choice, because why rock the boat? It’s like what happens to you when you become old — people tend to become more conservative; they don’t wanna do things that might offend people.

“I’m definitely nowhere near the middle of the road right now. I am just in a whole other place. And I’m sure I’ll lose fans because of it, at least for a little while. I think they’ll come back, and if they don’t, then thanks for listening for the time you did. But this is what I’ve gotta say, and this is where we have to go, and this is the place that MACHINE HEAD is at.”

He continued when asked if touring guitarist Wacław “Vogg” Kiełtyka (Decapitated) has contributed to the new material:

“I’ve co-written some stuff with Logan [Mader], and I’d love to write with Vogg too. We’re just kind of hammering out whatever we need to do. But Vogg did play a solo on one of the new songs that we’re gonna be dropping pretty soon here. And, yeah, it’s angry, and I’m stoked about the direction that it’s going. It’s heavy. It’s modern MACHINE HEAD. I would say it’s familiar to the last 10 years. It’s not ‘Burn My Eyes’; it’s still some other thing.”

He went on to say that Machine Head are not planning to release a new full-length album anytime soon:

“I’m all about dropping singles right now. I think an album will definitely show up, and some of these songs may end up on that album, but, to me, it’s all about just a constant stream of music dropping all the time.

“We’re pretty slow with albums — it’s already been two and a half years since our last album [2018’s ‘Catharsis’] — so I just don’t wanna wait another year to get music out. The music’s here, the music’s done; a lot of the lyrics that I’ve written are very much now, and they need to be heard now, in this moment.

“I do a podcast, and I can record a podcast and have it up an hour later. That’s fucking crazy to me. I can finish a song and have it up six hours later on all the fucking digital service providers. That’s fucking amazing. Never in history have we been able to do something like that. And we need to do more of that, especially with songs that are written about this moment and these times. It’s important to put ’em out now, not a year and a half from now.”

He also added the following when asked if fans can expect new music in the near future:

“Very soon. Sooner than you think.”

Machine Head’s “Burn My Eyes” To Receive New Vinyl Pressing

A new limited edition vinyl pressing of Machine Head’s 1994 debut album “Burn My Eyes“ will be released on September 25. The effort will include five demos from the Australian tour edition of the record and it can be pre-ordered HERE.

Robb Flynn Says “Machine Head Shows Will Probably Not Resume Until Summer Of 2022”

Health experts have said that live concerts may not return until at least fall 2021 and it seems some people are beginning to accept the harsh reality. Among them are Machine Head’s Robb Flynn, who said the band may not even resume touring until summer 2022.

Flynn said the following in a lengthy blog post:

“Guys like Zeke [Emanuel] and [Anthony] Fauci have been sounding the alarm for a long time now. This pandemic, like nearly all pandemics, will last 18 to 24 months. It’s going to come in waves. We’re gonna be hunkered down for a while, then we’re going to be able to lighten up some of the restrictions. Then it’s going to kick back in and we’re gonna have to hunker down, quarantine, shelter in place, social distance. Only to then will free things up, again at least to some degree, and then a third wave will probably come… and by then we will have the routine down so it will likely be under control, with the vaccine that’s wildly available to the general public.

He later added:

“Concerts will be the last thing that are allowed to happen. The large public gatherings that we’ve grown accustomed to? These things will never be the same. And like what happened during the Spanish flu of 1918, even when it ends, people are not going to be ready to go back to normal anyway.

Rock Clubs and Venues will have to cut down capacities by at least half.

Metal fans will be the most resilient of all the fan bases. I have zero question that they will be the first to return, determined to go back to shows, maybe to a fault (LOL), and for that I’m unbelievably grateful.

Pop and hip-hop audience often spend a lot more at shows than metal folks, insane amounts of money for ‘highroller seats’, but with very little dedication to the artist/act.

Sadly, we metal fans will also likely be most affected by this pandemic, as we are the one audience that is often struggling to live paycheck to paycheck.

It’s hard to accept the length of something like this, but the sooner that we can wrap our heads around it, the better we will likely be. This false notion that in just a few months we’re going to get ‘back to business,’ is good for a soundbite on Facebook, but bad for making realistic plans.

I myself have been able to keep a far more positive mindset knowing that Machine Head shows will probably not resume until summer of 2022, and that we will likely not get fully back on track until 2024, if we ever get back on track AT ALL!

We’ve gotta plan far ahead. We’ve got to figure out other ways to pay the bills.

Let’s face it, most music industry folks (record biz, crew, promotion, etc.) will most likely change jobs entirely and do something else for the rest of their lives. This of course happens as the record business takes another hit. Clubs, venues, promoters, a lot of life as we knew it… it’s all going to be decimated. Look at all the Euro festivals that have already been cancelled.

And look, I’ll say it here, I hope I’m wrong about the length of time. I would love to be wrong about this. But listening to people like Dr. Anthony Fauci and Ezekiel Emanuel…. It makes me think otherwise.

Oh wait, that’s right we can’t listen to Fauci because he’s trying to undermine Trump. Now there’s a whole #FauciFraud, #FireFauci from all of these right-wing conspiracy nut balls.”

You can read more from Flynn HERE. It’s also worth noting that Machine Head have already rescheduled the European/UK leg of their “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary tour for the fall. However, it is still unclear if the shows will actually happen. While you can’t see Machine Head live right now, you can still watch Flynn’s recent livestreamed acoustic performance below:

While we are thrilled to announce these rescheduled dates and very much look forward to seeing you all, some dates were simply not possible to reschedule, and with the ongoing pandemic, we will be monitoring the situation closely to ensure the reality of doing them.

Of the utmost importance to us is the health and safety of the Head Cases. We will not put you or others at risk, during this unprecedented time. As is quite obvious, nearly all of the dates we’ve listed are still in a “Shelter In Place” situation, with no public gatherings allowed over 10 people.

We are all hoping that this will be sorted out by then, if that is not the case by August, will make a decision as to whether we will be allowed to proceed.

Stay home, wash your hands, social distance, we will power through this friends.

Machine Head Postpone Second European/UK Leg Of “Burn My Eyes” 25th Anniversary Tour Due To Coronavirus

Machine Head have postponed the second European/UK leg of their “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary tour due to the coronavirus. The band are hoping to reschedule the dates for the fall.

Robb Flynn issued the following statement:

“It is with heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of our upcoming EU/UK tour in support of the 25th anniversary of Burn My Eyes.

As residents of the Bay Area, we’ve been hit hard and have witnessed firsthand what has been going on. Public gatherings of more than 1000 have been banned in San Jose, and events in downtown San Francisco including major concerts and conferences have been shut down.

We have been watching the situation overseas on a daily basis, in contact with all promoters, and local governments for the status of our concert there. As of a week ago, we had 6 concert cancelled until the 2nd week of April, due the banning of public gathering over 1,000 people (or in some cases 100 people). Even at that point, we still held out hope that things would be contained, and that the public gathering ordinances would be lifted by the time our tour started.

As of today, we now have 14 shows cancelled until the 2nd week of April, with 7 cancelled indefinitely. And it appears as of an hour ago, another 3 have been cancelled.

15 minutes ago the World Health Organization just declared the Coronavirus a pandemic.

Of paramount importance to us is the heath and safety of the Head Cases. We’ve worked hard with all our management, booking agents, and business associates to find other solutions or options, but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level. In addition to that, we also have a unique group of extraordinarily passionate fans who travel from all over the continent to watch our shows. We are eternally humbled by the dedication and devotion of the Head Cases, however in this case, travel is something not recommended.

So it is with deep frustration and regret that we are forced to make this announcements. The Burn My Eyes 25th anniversary tour is to be postponed and shows rescheduled for a later date, hopefully in the Fall, but possibly later.

We look forward to our next concerts with you all, and the ability to publicly gather together and play raging heavy metal for you and vent all of our collective frustration, as a result of this insane moment in history, out in the circle pit.

Stay safe, stay calm, and be well friends.

– Robb and Machine Head“
