Bay Area metal titans Machine Head headlined an exclusive North American tour this past January with no support bands. No locals. Just a crushing two-hour set of Machine Head as BTS’s Dante Torrieri caught up with the band at Philly’s Underground Arts venue.
Machine Head have just announced the South American version of their solo run. Comments Robb Flynn, “Having only done one tour of South America back in 2011, we cannot tell you how excited we are to get back down and rage with the maniacs of Brazil, Chile, and Argentina, and it will be our first time EVER playing in Mexico, Bogata, Montevideo, and the stories are legendary about how crazy these audiences are! This is going to crush!”
Machine Head are a band operating at the absolute peak of their collective powers, as exemplified by their new album Bloodstone & Diamonds debuting at a staggering #12 on the “World Charts” a phenomenal achievement for a metal band with no mainstream radio airplay.
