Another epic heavy metal tour has been announced, for Machine Head are also hitting the road! As of last month, the band released a new studio album titled Of Kingdom and Crown, and to celebrate that record, the band will be touring throughout North America. Per a statement provided by band frontman Robb Flynn:

“We’re fucking STOKED [to] get out and demolish venues in some of our favorite small towns in America, we have had an awesome and productive pandemic break writing our new album ‘ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN’, but now it’s time for Machine Head to go melt some faces!! The reaction to our ‘Electric Happy Hour (Live)’ shows in Scotland so far are nothing short of incredible, so for this first leg of this U.S. run we will continue and will see us performing solo for 2 ½ to 3 hours a night. We LOVED performing our online shows which we dubbed Electric Happy Hour for you Head Cases over the pandemic, the loose, beer-drenched and unscripted setlist, the deep-cuts, the random cover songs, it gave us the freedom to do whatever the fuck we wanted for as long as we wanted every night was liberating. It’s 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, so come down and rage!!”
