Machine Head Unleash New Single ‘Is There Anybody Out There’
The song is aggressive at times, mellow in parts, with a catchy chorus tailor made for radio. You can watch a nearly 20 minute video about the making of the song below.
Frontman Robb Flynn says, "The song is about love, loneliness, racism, and not getting what is going on in the world/America. It's very much about current events, but applies to a bigger picture."
Lyrics in "Is Anybody Out There" include, "Now I stand as a father, to men with no honor / Ashamed of the racists I used to call brothers / Cause no flag can mean bravery, when bloodied by slavery." Flynn addressed the subject of racism in metal in a video posted earlier this year following controversial comments and actions by Philip Anselmo during Dimebash 2016.
"Is There Anybody Out There" will be available for digital purchase Friday via iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. In the meantime, you can stream it at this location.
