  • Machine Head: 'Circle The Drain'
    POSTED 16 Feb 2020

    Machine Head

    Metal legends Machine Head celebrated Valentine's Day this year by, well, not celebrating it at all, with the new non-album track called 'Circle The Drain', which you can listen to below.

    The track was specifically written about an acquaintance of vocalist Rob Flynn, who had his relationship collapse after returning home from fighting in Afghanistan:

    “She had messed around on him, then got paranoid about him messing around on her, and drove him crazy. We had a conversation on Valentine's Day and he said to me, 'They were just circling the drain…' The phrase struck me. A few days later, I incorporated it into the song I'd been working on."

    It was a strange parallel with my life at the time, having recently had two band members quit, and even more bizarrely, two long-time couple friends of my wife and I, also divorced. It was breakup season, and it played out with friends taking sides, people not being invited to certain events anymore, social and emotional pressure, and all the typical stuff that happens when a relationship goes bad … If the day ever comes when your life goes awry, this song will be a lifeline for you, something to help pull you up out of that dark place.”

    Check it out:

    'Circle The Drain' follows up Machine Head's previous single 'Do Or Die', which was also released as a standalone single back in October last year.
