Check out Machine Head’s new song “Locust” below. In a press statement, vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn explained, “‘Locust’ is a metaphor. Locusts fly in a swarm, but they can’t control which direction they fly; they float on the wind, they land, cause massive destruction, and then float away on the wind to leave you in the aftermath. The song is a metaphor for a type of person that sometimes comes into your life and has a similar effect.”
Machine Head’s new as-yet-untitled studio album is due out September 27 via Roadrunner Records. In support of the upcoming release, the band will be heading out on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival in July.
