Fresh off the release of their sophomore album I Am Jack’s Lonely Heart Club Band LP through Avebbo, L.A. electro punks MACHINEKIT have teamed up with us to give you their newest sick music video for the song “LOVEFUCK”!
“Lovefuck is nostaliga punching you straight in the gut.” – William Buege (Synths)
MACHINEKIT fuses aggressive snarl with hypnotic rave on their sophomore LP, I Am Jack’s Lonely Heart Club Band that is set to come out March 31st, 2022.
It’s the product of nearly a decade’s worth of unbounded experimentation with their sound, assembling a hoard of electronics to mingle with raw punk instrumentation alongside vocals dripping with feeling no matter what form they take.
The record indeed runs a serious dynamic gamut: neck-breaking riffs on top of dense dance beats; thorny grooves beneath a chorus of roared commands; tense dirges and whisper-quiet musings.

Machinekit, formerly known as Dharma from 2012 – 2016, founded by frontman John Rojas (La Bella , Brainfreeze, Badmouth), Dave Cayetano (Ruptures), and William Buege (Brainfreeze).
During 2016, the trio changed their name to Machinekit and self-released their debut full-length, Dysappearencer by 2017. They followed this release with several EPs and singles hinting at a new direction.
By 2021, Machinekit added drummer Ryan Janke (Fun Game) and multi-instrumentalist Ivan Garcia (Tentwenty-Seven, Presser) to the line up. The quintet quickly connected and applied their electronic and punk influences together to create an agglomeration of chaos.
