Formed in Wiltshire in 2016 Cracked Machine introduced themselves to the world with their debut
album “I, Cosmonaut” (Psyka Records). Energised by the fantastic reception the album received, the
four cosmic explorers set about honing their craft with a steady schedule of shows and festivals in
the UK and Europe - sharing stages with bands such as King Buffalo, Rotor, Electric Moon, Acid Mothers Temple and The Spacelords.
2018 saw a return to the studio resulting in their second LP “The Call of the Void” (also on Psyka Records).
“Suffice to say, it is an album of breathless intensity and highly recommended for all lovers of Psych and instrumental rock”
– Echoes and Dust
The response from both press and the fans was overwhelming and confirmed that the band had
made a giant leap forward with their second LP. News travels fast and with an ever-increasing fan
base lusting for more the heavy-psychonauts signed with Berlin based label Kosmik Artifactz
(Forming the Void, IAH, Green Lung et al) for the release of their third album.
Gates of Keras was released on 27th June 2020
The band had a busy schedule for 2022 and were excited to return to play at Kozfest and Space
Chase festivals in UK as well as Fuzz 25, Take me to the Moon and Krach am Bach festivals in Europe.
Early 2023 saw the completion of their 4th album - Wormwood
Release date – 20/01/24
“Everything Cracked Machine goes for is done exceptionally.”
