After announcing that Machine Head will be kicking off the year in style on their US tour for Catharsis, now the band have announced a U.K. tour as well!
Becoming very much their own entity entirely Machine Head are fast heading towards a band who play by a different set of rules altogether. On their final Bloodstone and Diamonds run, the band performed their An Evening With… set which saw the band play two and a half to three hours worth of material with no support. Having seen the phenomenal success that Machine Head have now garnered with the they’re returning with the same formula but a brand new album.
Recently announcing their new record Catharsis, Machine Head will be touring the U.K. in May of 2018 performing what promises to be a spectacular show once more.
Robb Flynn states : “We LOVED performing as an ‘Evening With’ for the UK Head Cases and you guys loved it as well. The freedom to do whatever the fuck we want, for as long as we want every night was liberating. Jamming ‘Desire To Fire’ live for the first time in aeons at the Ten Ton Hammersmith show in London was epic as fuck! This is not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again. We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it’s the best feeling in the world! No festivals, period! No supporting some stupid DJ! The Head will only be ‘Headlining’, so come on down and rage!!”
Quite rightly so! Machine Head have always been a band that play by their own rules and nobody else’s. With the fierce devotion that their fans have it’ll be no surprise these shows will be just as brilliant as their last.
