The Skinny: Dallas based hard rock outfit Brand New Machine’s new album, The Devil Made Me Do It, hit stores this week via Epochal Artist Records/Capitol Music Group. To celebrate the album’s release the group are currently streaming the song “Dust The Sky” online – listen below. The group have also announced the addition of drummer Seven Antonopoulos, formerly of Opiate for the Masses, to the Brand New Machine ranks.

“We would like to welcome drummer Seven Antonopoulos to Brand New Machine. Seven is an incredible drummer and his style fits in perfectly with what we do,” said bassist Wiley Oliver. “It’s hard to compare us to other rock acts today because a lot of rock albums all sound the same. So many bands come and go chasing trends, but we’ve never jumped on any bandwagons. This music is a lifestyle and we wear it like a badge.”

Brand New Machine’s new album, The Devil Made Me Do It, was recorded at Validus Recording Studios in Los Angeles, CA under the watchful eye of producer/mixer Ryan Greene (Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick). The album takes the band’s hard-living lifestyle and mixes it with arena ready rock anthems to create a soundtrack for debauchery. Brand New Machine’s explosive live show has earned them countless opening slots for national acts including recent overseas dates with Guns N’ Roses.
