San Francisco Bay Area metal band Machine Head has announced a North American tour in support of their forthcoming album, Catharsis. Vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn comments: "It's been far too long since we've demolished venues in America, we have had an awesome and productive break writing our new album Catharsis, but now it's time for Machine Head to go melt some faces! The reaction to our last 'Evening With' tours in America were nothing short of incredible, so once again these dates will be 'Evening With' and will see us performing 2 1/2 to 3 hours every night with no opening bands. We loved performing as an Evening With for you Head Cases, and you guys loved it as well, 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 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! No festivals period, no 45 minute slots, no supporting some stupid DJ, no parking lots in a rain storm, The Head will only be "Headlining", so come on down and rage!!" 1/25 Phoenix, AZ @ Nile Theater 1/27 Albuquerque, NM @ Sunshine Theater 1/29 San Antonio, TX @ Aztec Theater 1/30 Dallas, TX @ Gas Moneky Live! 1/31 Houston,TX @ HOB 2/2 Birmingham, AL @ Saturn 2/3 Pensacola, FL @ Vinyl MH 2/5 Orlando, FL @ Plaza Live 2/6 Atlanta, GA @ Centerstage 2/8 Philadelphia, PA @ Theatre of Living Arts 2/9 New York, NY @ Playstation 2/10 Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club 2/11 Montreal, QC @ Club Soda 2/13 Toronto, ON @ Danforth MH 2/14 Buffalo, NY @ Town Ballroom 2/15 Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE 2/16 Cleveland, OH @ Agora 2/17 Detroit, MI @ Majestic 2/20 Des Moines, IA @ Woolys 2/21 Madison, WI @ Majestic 2/22 Minneapolis, MN @ First Avenue 2/23 Chicago, IL @ Concord MH 2/24 Saint Louis, MO @ Pops 2/27 Denver, CO @ Summit MH 3/1 Las Vegas, NV @ HOB 3/2 Los Angeles, CA @ Fonda 3/3 Oakland, CA @ The Fox Theater 3/5 Portland, OR @ Roseland 3/6 Vancouver, BC @ Commodore 3/7 Seattle, WA @ Showbox Market Tickets on sale this Friday, September 22.
