We’re incredibly proud of this clip and we hope that everyone out there feels something in the song and video that resonates with them as much as it does for us.‘
Opus Of A Machine have also signed with progressive music specialists, Wild Thing Presents as their exclusive booking agent.

We look forward to continuing this great relationship with the entire Wild Thing Presents family!’
Eli Chamravi, CEO of Wild Thing Presents comments, “I’ve known the Opus Of A Machine guys for sometime in and around Caligula’s Horse. They’re an excellent progressive alternative rock outfit, full of atmospheric passages, slick riffs, and big choruses. I caught their impressive PROGFEST Brisbane performance earlier this year, with their set full of amazing new album tracks which really captivated me. I’m positive they will come of age and reach greater heights with their fantastic new soon to be released album ‘Stray Fire’.”
Stray Fire is the bands first new music since their 2014 debut, Simulacra. The first single was recently released and received national airplay and served to whet the appetites of fans and media alike!
