MACHINE HEAD - "We Had A Massive Flood At The Studio"

"A lot of folks have been asking if we will do some Electric Happy Hours in the downtime between tours… The short answer is no," begins Machine Head vocalist / guitarist Robb Flynn in a video detailing the water damage sustained at his studio.

In an electrifying announcement that will cause anticipatory convulsions through the world of metal, Bay Area icons Machine Head have announced the first leg of their Slaughter The Martøur Nørth America 2024 tour.

Forgoing their “An Evening With…” format for the first time in a decade, Machine Head will have LA’s cyber-metal masters Fear Factory, Sweden’s Orbit Culture, and Louisville, KY’s Gates To Hell in tow guaranteeing your 2024 starts off as heavy as humanly possible!

Slaughter The Martøur Nørth America 2024 will kick off with a “hometown” show for Machine Head, their first since 2020 in San Francisco on January 19. Then the tour heads north with shows in the Pacific Northwest as well as eight shows in Canada. Other stops include Chicago, Orlando, and Houston before concluding in Los Angeles on February 24 at The Bellwether.

Machine Head’s founder Robb Flynn states, "Head Cases! This will be the greatest metal tour on earth! So stoked to be getting back on the road in America/Canada with 4 masters of soul-crushing heaviness and an absolutely earth-shattering bill. Fear Factory has long been our brothers-in-arms, pioneers, and innovators of a sound that had yet to exist. Orbit Culture are the fast-rising Swedish modern metal maniacs bringing their unique spin to the world, and Gates To Hell absolutely blew my mind at Milwaukee Metalfest with their sheer savage brutality. North America, we’re ready to crush skulls, crush beers, and crush everything in our path!

Fear Factory's Dino Cazares comments, “We are honored to be touring with the mighty Machine Head. We came up in the metal scene together and both bands have stamped their mark in modern metal, plus Robb has been a good friend of mine for close to 30 years. We are fucking excited for the metal fans to see this amazing package and we can’t wait to get out there. Let’s Fucking Rage!"

Says Orbit Culture, "It is such an honor for us to be going on tour with Machine Head and Fear Factory across North America, we look forward to bringing you all our brand of metal. Beware of the antlers North America!”

Gates To Hell comments, “Machine Head was one of the bands that inspired Gates To Hell to form. They’re a personal favorite to several of us. Out of all the tours we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of over the past year, this is definitely the one we’ve been most excited for. Very excited to share the stage with Machine Head, Fear Factory, and Orbit Culture.”

This tour promises to be an unforgettable experience for all metalheads in North America. Prepare for an onslaught of sonic intensity as these 4 bands unite for what will undoubtedly be one of the most talked-about metal tours for years!
