Watch Machine Head Perform “The More Things Change” on Their Livestream ft. Logan Mader


Machine Head has been killing it on their livestream series, performing weekly since the start of the pandemic. The band is especially good at performing their album playthroughs and just did one for their crucial second album The More Things Change (Roadrunner) and its 25th anniversary. The performance featured original MH second guitarist Logan Mader, who was recently back in the band for the Burn My Eyes 25 World Tour. Not only did they play the full album of TMTC, but a bunch of tracks from their debut Burn My Eyes too. Unfortunately, the video got a copyright strike on YouTube for the music the band owns! Now it is back up after an appeal. You can check out our album retrospective here for its 25th anniversary. Enjoy this greatness!
