Groove metal giants Machine Head have revealed the replacement for former bassist Adam Duce, who left the fold earlier this year. Former Sanctity man Jared MacEachern will join the band on their upcoming stint on the Rockstar Mayhem U.S. Festival, and will enter the studio with the guys to record their new album near the end of the year.
â€œWe had locked in Brandon Sigmund of local boys Hostility to play bass on that tour, but we soon realized weâ€™d need someone to hit the high harmonies,â€ says Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn.Â â€Our A&R guy Monte Conner recommended Jared since he was already on the tour, and that ended up being a great call.Â Jared flew out a few days before the tour and rehearsed with us and did great.Â What was most impressive about the whole thing was that he was doing double duty â€“ opening for Machine Head with his band at the time Sanctity, and then later singing with us. He would stay sober until after our set, and often get in the van and drive all night. His seriousness and dedication was awesome to see and it stuck with usâ€.
