THE MACHINE is back! The summer of 2015 will see the launch of Offblast!, the band's fifth full-length release. Elektrohasch Records will make the album available on both CD (June) and LP (August). Offblast! is the anticipated successor to 2012's Calmer Than You Are and 2013's split album with the now defunct Sungrazer.
Offblast! consists of six tracks, clocking in just over 50 minutes. The overall character of the album is a logical reflection of the band's evolution. THE MACHINE showcases a focus on improved song-writing and a better sense for melodies, while digging deeper into the more aggressive attitude they already displayed on the aforementioned split album. Continuing the heavier riff-oriented approach of the previous two releases, the power trio also gave in to their heavy psych side by recording two lengthy instrumental pieces. The third track on the album, Coda Sun, can be considered to be the online single: the song's music video was recently released on Youtube. Jakob Skøtt (drummer of Causa Sui and a gifted virtual artist) is responsible for the beautiful artwork of the album.
With a fat but breathing production, THE MACHINE wants to offer you the energy and atmosphere of the live shows. Offblast! is a must-have for both the head banging rocker and the psychonaut!
