Machine Head release intimate tour dates for U.S.
Official press release:
Following the release of their 10th full-length album ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN to staggering 10/10 reviews across the board and Top 10 chartings across the globe, Machine Head will embark on an intimate venue tour through small-town America as part of their Electric Happy Hour (Live). Dates include some tour favorites that Machine Head have had over the years including oft-missed places such as Minot, North Dakota, Springfield, Missouri, Huntington, West Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina.
Frontman Rob Flynn commented on the tour:
Were 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!!
Bassist Jared MacEachern also proclaimed:
We're finally bringing 'ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN' 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 others faces, so be ready for a sweaty, beer-drenched, throat-ripping good time!
