MAN MADE MACHINE came out of the gates swinging and crash landed this past year as one of the most exciting and promising new acts to hit rock n roll.
In 2011, Man Made Machine (Joe Cotela, Steve Siminski, Matt Reinhard, Justin Sena and Marc Hernandez) raised eyebrows with their early demos. They soon locked in their collaborative management team Steve Kidd (Rage Against the Machine) and Izzy Zivkovik of Split Media (Shadows Fall/Nonpoint).
After being courted by several labels, the guys inked a record deal with New York based Razor & Tie to release their hard-hitting, anthem-packed full length debut album BECOME. Produced by Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett (Mudvayne/HellYeah) and mixed by Jeremy Parker (Godsmack/Evanescence), the album has catapulted them into the big leagues of modern rock.
"It was an honor and a killer experience to work with guys like Chad and Greg. We're all huge fans of their music and the fact that guys we look up to were challenging and inspiring us in the studio really brought MMM to the next level creatively,” says singer Joe Cotela.
The first single “Victim” spent eight weeks on the active rock top 100 and peaked at #34 on the radio charts. The single’s music video premiered exclusively on RevolverMag.com and led the band to features on credited music sites including AOL Music, Blabbermouth, Metal Hammer, Outburn, Noisecreep, Absolutepunk, ThePRP, and MetalSucks.
Man Made Machine brought their brand of dirty, full-octane rock and metal sound live to the masses as they hit the road, sharing the bill with Staind, Three Days Grace, Fuel, Nonpoint, Janus, Powerman 5000, Steel Panther, Adelita's Way, Egypt Central and Tantric, to name a few.
The band is rolling into 2012 with a February tour supporting Pop Evil and will be dropping their second single from BECOME to impact radio everywhere this spring.
