the following Misfits update was taken verbatim from Congratulations are in order for MACHINE HEAD drummer Dave McClain (ex-SACRED REICH) and longtime girlfriend Shelli Longfield, who will finally tie the knot on September 26 in the San Francisco Bay Area. As previously reported, MACHINE HEAD's fifth studio album, titled "Through The Ashes Of Empires" (view cover here), is due on October 27 through Roadrunner Records in Europe. The follow-up to 2001's "Supercharger" was recorded at Sharkbite studios in Oakland, California, and features production by MACHINE HEAD frontman Robert Flynn. A special limited double-CD edition of "Through The Ashes Of Empires" will contain a load of extra material not found on the regular CD, including six demo tracks recorded during the pre-production sessions for the new album and a live video for "The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears".
