Machine EP Launch

Tomorrow night, the Grace Darling in Collingwood presents this highlyanticipated EP by lords of rocking, psychedelic sounds; the band we know as Machine. And if youve yet to hear their tunes; check out this sneakpeek from the forthcoming EP:

In what can only be described as a virulent assault on the aural senses of your ears, Machine toil and tumble through a cavacade of sonic excess that will put a smile on your face and a dent in your appreciation of music. Simply put; if you haven’t seen them already, then get your arse down to Smith Street and witness this event for yourself. The show begins at 9pm, with excellent support from The Process.
