Machine Head announce U.S. tour for this fall

Author Flavia Andrade - 7.9.2022

San Francisco metal outfit Machine Head are going on a tour through small-town America as part of their “Electric Happy Hour (Live)”. Dates include some often missed towns.

Frontman Robb Flynn says: 

“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 ‘Of Kingdom And Crown’, 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 you 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!!”

Bassist Jared MacEachern adds:

“We’re finally bringing ‘Of Kingdom And Crown’ and more to you, America! We’re gonna kick it off in the small towns, a real nooks-and-crannies kind of run. We’re gonna be raging right in each other’s faces, so be ready for a sweaty, beer-drenched, throat-ripping good time!”
