Of Machines Return, Plan to Release An EP

Of+Machines

Forming in 2006, Of Machines spent the next 4 years building a following, signing to Rise Records, and releasing their only record. As If Everything Was Held In Place was released in 2008 and supported the band’s setlists for the next year and a half. Then things changed.

In 2010, un-clean vocalist and electronics player Bennett Freeman left the band for unknown reasons. Clean vocalist Dylan Anderson soon followed, later working on his solo project called Soft Powers. This left guitarist Mike Matejick (Native Suns), keyboardist Jasön Mays, and drummer Brent Guistwite who went on to play in the band Lead Hands (formerly Decoder). The band had disbanded.

Enter the new year.

On January 9, 2013 the Of Machines Facebook page posted a status update reading, “If we recorded a new ep… Who would want it?” A lot of people did. 3,389 people at time of posting. Today, a video was posted teasing the band’s return and promised an EP this year, possibly called Chroma Dreamcoat.

Confirmed as involved are vocalist Dylan Anderson, guitarists Jon Lugo and Michael Matejick. It’s speculated that Bennett Freeman and Mark Tanner will return as well, but we have not been able to confirm this.

UPDATE: Mike Matejick has reportedly said this will be the last release from the band. Here is a alleged quote from his Facebook

“This year is going to be an amazing year. I’m so proud of everything Native Suns is writing! I can’t wait to show everyone. It’s going to blow y’alls mind. I’m also excited to say that Of Machines will be releasing one last final EP with the original line-up”.
