Today, Oakland-based Machine Head released a digital single called ‘Arrows in Words From the Sky’. The release contains three new tracks: ‘Rotten’, ‘Arrows in Words From the Sky’ and the massive ‘Become the Firestorm’.
The effects of a pandemic and the death of Robb Flynn’s mother had an impact on these three songs and added a dark haze to these songs.
“The lyrics to these songs took to me places inside I didn’t want to go, from the bile and negativity on “Rotten,” to nothing-will-beat-me-down fury of “Become The Firestorm,” to the title track “Arrows” being one of the saddest songs I’ve ever written, yet somehow has the power to lift me up out of what was a very dark time in my life. My hope is that by sharing these dark experiences with the Head Cases of the world, it can save someone else out of that same dark place.”
