Ex-Evanescence and Future Leaders of The World members release first album for San Francisco indie metal label, Rogue Records America.

Originally from Little Rock, AK, Phil Taylor (former Future Leaders of the World) and John Le Compt (ex-Evanescence) met on the local metal scene between breaks working and touring with their former bands. The two established a musical connection and decided to work together on a shared project with a sound distinct from their better-known bands—MACHINA.

The result is To Live and Die in the Garden of Eden, which contains 11 powerful yet melodic hard rock tracks including first single ‘Crown’. Other stand out tracks include ‘Trust’ with its haunting melody and searing guitar and the darkly plaintiff ‘Marie’. The album was recorded at The Sound Kitchen in Nashville, TN with Grammy-winning producer Toby Wright.

To Live and Die in The Garden of Eden is released by Rogue Records America and is available NOW for digital download at iTunes and other digital retailers. CD’s will be available by mail order through CM Distro.

MACHINA consists of Phil Taylor (vocals) John LeCompt (Guitar) Rocky Gray (Drums) and Tad Ables (Bass).The band signed to Rogue Records. They are currently touring and promoting To Live and Die In The Garden of Eden.
