Robb Flynn and his Epiphone Love/Death Flying VMachine Head's Robb Flynn recently told fans in his regular online diary that Machine Head are working on new material for their next album album.

"Dave (McClain), Phil (Demmel) and I practiced the other day and it was a really productive first jam session," wrote Flynn. "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 ‘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.”
