Machine Head have announced the first leg of their 25th anniversary tour, celebrating their classic debut album Burn My Eyes.
The ‘An Evening With…’ style shows will be comprised of two parts. The first part will feature the band’s modern classics, performed by frontman/guitarist Robb Flynn, bassist Jared MacEachearn and two yet-to-be-announced musicians on guitar and drums. The second part of the evening will feature Machine Head‘s debut album Burn My Eyes in full, where original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader will take to the stage.
“Having started rehearsals with Chris and Logan several weeks ago, I’m literally giddy with excitement at the prospect of how much fun this is going to be,” Flynn comments. “Both Logan and Chris are in phenomenal playing shape, the vibe between all four of us has been incredibly positive, and having run through deep cuts like ‘Death Church’ and ‘I’m Your God Now’ for the first time in over a decade, has reminded me of how fucking heavy our older songs are! This tour is going to be MASSIVE!! Do not sleep on this, tell your friends, spread the word, because tickets are going to disappear!”
