Yesterday, fans were excited to learn that Machine Head would be releasing an advanced mix of “Locust,” the first single off of their new as-yet-untitled album, as a digital single on June 14. But now fans can hear 30 seconds of the nearly 8 minute track online. Amazon has just posted a sample of Machine Head’s new song on their site, but you can also hear it in the video up top. It might only be a 30 second sample, but we can already tell that Machine Head’s new album will not disappoint.
“Locust” will be available as a digital download from iTunes and Amazon this coming Tuesday (June 14). The song will also apparently appear on the “iTunes Mayhem digital sampler” download cards, which will be handed out at every date on this Summer’s Mayhem Fest. And who knows, maybe we’ll get to hear Machine Head play more new stuff during their set on the tour.
