Ferocious LA five-piece, Once Human have unveiled a taste of brand new music with new single, Deadlock, taken from their forthcoming album, Scar Weaver, set for release in February 2022 via earMUSIC. Deadlock features a guest appearance from Machine Head frontman, Robb Flynn, friend and former bandmate of Once Human guitarist, Logan Mader.
Logan’s history with Machine Head is well documented, not least in recent times when he toured the globe with Robb for the Bay Area band’s Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour. As a result, this new collaboration needs no explanation, but front woman Lauren Hart remains thrilled by the whole experience, telling us:
It was absolutely amazing, are you kidding? I didn’t believe it was happening until he sent something back and I heard his voice on our song. I was like, ‘Holy crap! This is real!’ He came back with a new chorus and it was so much better than mine, so my chorus was gone! [Laughs] But then performing with him in the video, that was insane. The energy he brings on stage, he brings in person too. It was a great experience and his energy is so powerful. The video came out amazing!
The video for “Deadlock” premieres at 11pm UK time on July 1st and members of the band will be hanging out in the YouTube chat, talking to fans as the video plays.
