Machine Head have released a video showing Robb Flynn, Jared MacEachearn, Chris Kontos and Logan Mader laying down their track A Thousand Lies live in the studio.

The band announced in March that they would play live shows this year to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album Burn My Eyes with old members Kontos and Mader, and later revealed to Kerrang that the four of them had also re-recorded the full album to mark the occasion.

They followed that news with a video showcasing Davidian, and now they’ve revealed A Thousand Lies from the studio sessions.

Check out the footage below.

Speaking about their plans going forward, vocalist and guitarist Flynn told Kerrang: “We plan on dripping that out song-by-song. It’ll probably be digital-only – just something cool to help celebrate. We filmed ourselves doing it so there’ll probably be some playthrough videos, too.”

He added: “It’s so cool seeing us playing those songs again for the first time. There are mistakes, but we just left them in. It was just part of this really special, fun, positive moment.”

Machine Head’s Burn My Eyes tour will run throughout October and November.
