Machine Head Names Matt Alston as Their New Drummer, Shares Rehearsal Footage

In a new video on their YouTube Channel, Machine Head have announced their new drummer, Matt Alston. The Colchester, UK-bred drummer is best known for his work with Devilment and Eastern Front, but has been a session and live drummer for countless bands over the last decade. He has also been a tech for the band in recent years. The 31-year-old drummer started playing at eight years old. The band just shared some jam room footage of Alston smashing some tracks. Machine Head is about to embark on the fast selling-out worldwide “Burn My Eyes 25” tour, where a new incarnation of the band will play a modern setlist, while the BME25 lineup closes with a performance of Burn My Eyes (Roadrunner) in its entirety. Welcome, Matt!
