Biography

     Built to last and refusing to follow the Indie music scene that has been dominating California, Dirty Machine have tasked themselves with bringing homegrown American Nu Metal back to the forefront of the industry. Based out of Los Angeles, the crowd this band draws has been moshing to their down-tuned rhythm since 2012. Consisting of David "Dirty Davo" Leach (front man), Darren Davis (guitar, vocals), Arnold "Hedge" Quezada (guitar), NIGHTMARE (percussion), DJ Ecusa (turntable), and Youngblood (bass); the members of Dirty Machine have brought together their eclectic musical backgrounds to form a powerhouse group that will not be fading away anytime soon.


     Whether it is progressing forward with their music or thrashing around on stage, Dirty Machine is always in a state of constant motion. This is a band that does not believe in standing still. With a passionate enthusiasm for their craft which is rarely seen in today’s music, the members of Dirty Machine can make even the most standoffish crowd start head banging. Every live performance is a wildly spirited event.


     Dirty Machine has done everything from headlining the Jägermeister stage at the 2016 Kansas City Rockfest to playing a sold out show at the House of Blues Sunset Strip. They have opened for acts such as Otep, Metalachi, and Orgy. Although they are based out of California, they are getting regular airtime on the leading Kansas City rock station “98.9 The Rock” and have been taking the state of Missouri by storm. They are also being heavily featured on the internet based rock station "Rock Rage Radio". Dirty Machine is steadily conquering America one state at a time through their street team, rabid fan base, and the far reaching scope of internet radio.

     Dirty Machine released their debut album "Discord" on May 26th, 2017 and have currently completed their first ever tour opening for the infamous Insane Clown Posse.



The band is proud to be sponsored by EMG Pickups, COLDCOCK Whiskey, Bar Metal Clothing, TRX Cymbals, Xcel Drumsticks, and ESP Guitars.

  •      Dirty Machine was founded by Mike Hargraves aka (Miki Graves) years ago in Altadena, CA. In December of 2012, David Leach answered a Craigslist ad for a band looking for a singer. Since then Dirty Machine has withstood over four years of member changes, industry ridicule and constant online backlash for our genre of music. With that being said, we are extremely proud to bring you this documentary. The new lineup consisting of Mike Weekley, Arnold Quezada, Dee J Ecusa, Darren Davis and Nathan Young have brought this band to a level that we never dreamed possible.

         This video, which was shot and directed by Sébastien Paquet, will bring you inside our Nu-Metal record "Discord" which drops tomorrow worldwide on Zombie Shark Records. With so many hundreds of people to thank, we decided to narrow it down to the two most important. Those people are Miki Graves and Bria Betrice. We love you both and thank you.
