Little Rock, Arkansas-based band Machina, featuring Phil Taylor (former Future Leaders of the World) and John Le Compt (ex-Evanescence), will be the featured band on an upcoming show chronicling the journey and real life struggles of musicians as they make their way to becoming rock stars.
The show, The Making of Rockstars, is scheduled to premiere early next year, airing via syndication on Fox, CBS and ABC and hitting roughly 200 million viewers. The show is being filmed on the band's U.S. headline run.
Along with the television show, the band and show will be interacting directly with fans via online updates and communication. It is here where fans will truly experience the creation of "reality television" as Machina faces daily challenges, gets into ridiculous situations and will relay their struggles through interviews and daily uploads of edited video highlighting their journey. Fans will be able to be a part of every experience, creating viral and engaging phenomena.
The Making of Rockstars' producer David DeLay stated, "I'm really excited to work with such a professional band as Machina on The Making of Rockstars. The potential of this band is unlimited and the work ethic is unmatched. I believe you're seeing the birth of the next great rock band."
"Machina is amped to be featured on The Making of Rockstars. We believe that this groundbreaking medium will pave the road for original artists alike for many years to come," added vocalist Taylor on behalf of the band. "Sharing our music and connecting with our fans is what we're all about, so it made perfect sense to form this partnership with David DeLay. We really look forward to getting our story out to the masses while touring in support of our new album."
Stay tuned for more updates about The Making of Rockstars, coming soon.
