MACHINE HEAD: Adam Duce Has Left The Building - Official Statement Available!
Wow! Talk about a crazy week. Earlier this week, Dave Lombardo pretty much gets fired from SLAYER... and now this:
"Machine Head and bassist Adam Duce have parted ways. The split is amicable, and Machine Head would like to wish Adam the best with his current and future endeavors. The band will continue on for the time being as a three-piece and have begun the writing process for their follow-up to 2011's 'Unto The Locust'. A late 2013 release is projected."
Duce was a founding member of the band and a pretty decent bass player. Whoever MACHINE HEAD chooses to replace him, has huge shoes to fill.
This is what Robb Flynn had to say about the bands NEW sonic assult: "Dave [McClain, drums], Phil [Demmel, guitar] and I practiced the other day and it was a really productive first jam session. McClain had about five rockin' riffs, Demmel brought in the skeleton of what feels like a great song and I had a few riffs that we rocked on, no full songs, but solid riffs. It felt good, good to be moving on from [2011's 'Unto The Locust']. Super proud of that record, but it's time to move on, and we're ready to move on. Bring on the future with an open embrace."
