Former Machine Head Drummer Dave McClain Rejoins Sacred Reich

After leaving Machine Head at the end of their North American tour, drummer Dave McClain has now rejoined his original band, Sacred Reich.

The sticksman played for the Phoenix thrashers between 1991 and 1995, and is now returning once more, ready to plot tour dates and record a new album with the band in February.

Dave says of the news: “I’m so excited about re-joining my brothers in Sacred Reich. To have the opportunity to make and play music with one of my favorite metal bands was always something I hoped could happen. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new album that we’re recording in February and to come see us out on the road in 2019-2020.”

While frontman and bassist Phil Rind adds: “It is with great pleasure that we announce that Dave McClain is once again a member of Sacred Reich! This was the best case scenario that we could have hoped for. Dave is the best! A great drummer and a great person and we are beyond excited to welcome him back to the band. We’re headed into the studio in February and can't wait for you all to hear our new record due in the summer of 2019!”
