Machine Head is streaming a new track titled "Bastards."

San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans Machine Head have unveiled another track from their upcoming album, Catharsis (out on January 26). The new track is titled "Bastards" and can be streamed below. During a recent discussion on the "That's Not Metal" podcast, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn had this to say about the song: "It's definitely way outside of the Machine Head wheelhouse, and we knew that. There was a lot of internal debate in the band, like, 'Can we say this?' 'Do we need to say this?' 'Can we do a song like this?' To me, it's a folk song. It's four chords that have been played a million times over the last hundred years. And I knew that writing it. I just wrote it and I picked it up and those were the notes that worked well under the vocals that I was singing. And that's what worked."
