Dave McClain (Ex-Machine Head) Rejoins Sacred Reich

Dave McClain (ex-Machine Head) has officially rejoined Sacred Reich. The drummer was previously a member of the group from 1991 to 1995.

Frontman Phil Rind commented:

“It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dave McClain is once again a member of Sacred Reich! This was the best case scenario that we could have hoped for. Dave is the best! A great drummer and a great person and we are beyond excited to welcome him back to the band. We’re headed into the studio in February and can’t wait for you all to hear our new record due in the Summer of 2019!”

McClain added:

“I’m so excited about rejoining my brothers in Sacred Reich. To have the opportunity to make and play music with one of my favorite metal bands was always something I hoped could happen. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new album that we’re recording in February and to come see us out on the road in 2019-2020.”
