THE MACHETE EP: Release Date 27/05/14
www.wmdstudios.co.uk/machete-press Prepare for what you are expecting from this CD to be kicked to the curb… The Machete EP is the debut release from world acoustic rockers The Machete, bringing you their fresh blend of Hispanic and metal rhythms!
This CD is guaranteed to have you pumping your fist in the air before the end of the first track. The EP features six tracks including Chico al Fondo, the video for which also headlines the bonus WMD Studios Music DVD that comes free with the special edition.
Hailing from Portsmouth, UK, Matt and Dom have their musical roots firmly embedded in heavy metal and have played together in bands including Hung Yesterday and Puresist. Inspired by acoustic artists such as Rodrigo y Gabriela and Jesse Cook, they put down their electric instruments and turned their hands to acoustic guitars. After casually writing upbeat tunes using mostly metal techniques in Spanish gypsy scales, they realised they had something that was going down a storm where ever they played and so decided to take it to the next level. This happily coincided with the duo’s launch of a new indie label, WMD Studios Music, where they’re aspiring to show that bands and small labels can go it alone.
The Machete and WMD Studios Music are pulling out all the stops to make the release of The Machete EP as successful as possible using on-line competitions, face to face promotion at local shows and planning a tour of the south of the UK, dates TBC, as well as breaking away from the norm by releasing two versions of the EP – the standard edition in the form of a 4 page digipak, and a special edition CD/DVD combo. The DVD is showcasing the music video for Chico al Fondo alongside 6 other live performances from other artists in the WMD Studios Live Video Podcast.
The Machete EP goes on general release on 27/05 and will be available for download on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon mp3, streaming on Spotify and purchase on Amazon and wmdstudios.co.uk.
