Voivod to launch Silver Machine EP


Voivod have announced plans to release a new 7-inch EP titled Silver Machine.

The limited edition record will launch on September 29 via Century Media and feature a cover of Hawkwind’s classic 1972 track Silver Machine along with Post Society.

The package is limited to just 1000 copies: 500 on black vinyl sold by Century Media Distro, 200 copies on white vinyl via Century Media’s webshop and 300 on silver vinyl available on the band’s upcoming European tour.

Voivod drummer Michel ‘Away’ Langevin says: “At this moment, we are recording demos and writing the conclusion of the next album, while getting ready for the Wings Of Metal Festival here in Montreal.

“Right after this show we will rehearse a couple of new setlists for the upcoming tour. We are really thrilled to go to Europe again this year, to play in some countries we never visited before.

“In November, after the tour, we will go to RadicArt studio to record the new material, at last. In the meantime, see you on the road!”

Those live European shows will get underway in Bologna, Italy, on September 29.
