"Not gonna say no. I'm not committed to that."

Machine Head led up to their 2022 record Of Kingdom And Crown with a handful of singles and EP throughout 2020 and 2021. While we haven't heard any new music from the group since then, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn revealed to Loudwire that they're definitely working on it.

In the interview, Flynn said he's not opposed to putting out new music in 2024, but he's not also not gonna commit to the idea.

"Not gonna say no. I'm not committed to that," said Flynn. "But we do. We got some new jams, killer, brutal and heavy and definitely feels like a new vibe. I kind of write songs and sometimes, a lot of the first few songs you write for a record, I found just in general, like, kind of suck. They're just like, whatever, you don't hate them. You don't love them. They're just like, Yeah, whatever and then at some point, there comes a song where you're like, 'Oh, we're onto something here.'

"This is different, like, this is 'okay. I can kind of see where we might go from here and we hit that song the other day. I think I know what we're gonna go from here and it felt good. It felt good after writing like three or four songs that I was just gonna be like whatever and then we kind of got threw those away.' Now we got like two or three that were like, 'Oh, okay, I think I know where the record is going.'"

Flynn elaborated on Machine Head's newfound independence, saying he feels music is headed back to a time where it's more about giving fans new things to listen to instead of overloading them with content on social media,

"At this point, that's the good place that Machine Head is in," said Flynn. "We have our own record company, we own all of our publishing, we own our masters. We own our merchandise. So, we can kind of do our thing. It's all kind of self-contained and I definitely want to keep putting music out.

"I think especially since the Burn My Eyes tour, we've released 19 songs now, released a full album, and then an additional nine singles slash EP, slash whatever and I liked that. We've really put out a lot of content and just trying to keep that going. I want to keep just a constant stream of even if it's not an album, singles or standalone EPs that never get incorporated into the album and then just keep on. To me, that's what fans want more than anything in this day and age.

"I think that it really is just about feeding your fans and it's kind of almost back to where I feel it was in the 70s. Bands in the 60s and 70s, they were dropping albums like two albums a year, two full albums a year. They definitely weren't touring as much, but there was a huge amount of content coming out and that to me is where it's all going. I feel like everybody's so overwhelmed with social media that we really don't need anyone talking anymore.

"I don't feel like feeding content to fans on social media in the way that it was that for a minute, but I don't feel like it's that way anymore. I feel like now it's just about music."
