Machine Head have released a live video for their track Volatile.

The song features on the band’s latest album Catharsis, which launched back in January via Nuclear Blast.

The new promo was created by Fiaz Farrelly, with the footage captured during the band’s UK tour in May this year.

Check it out below.

Speaking to Metal Hammer about Catharsis, frontman Robb Flynn said: “To my ears it’s the record that could have followed The Burning Red, except that this has a much more aggressive production.

The Burning Red had a much darker, more stoner vibe. This has a real classic BlackeningBurn My Eyes production, but I’ve still been saying to people on these Facebook Live things I do that you need to lower your expectations for the heaviness!”
