Groove metal legends Machine Head will hit the road for a North American tour featuring support from Fear Factory, Orbit Culture and Gates to Hell in 2024. It's the first time in a decade that Machine Head has skipped the "An Evening With…" format in favor of bringing out support.
Says frontman Robb Flynn: "Head Cases! This will be the greatest metal tour on earth! So stoked to be getting back on the road in America/Canada with four masters of soul-crushing heaviness and an absolutely earth-shattering bill. Fear Factory have 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 brining 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 main man Dino Cazares chimed in with his own excitement: "We are honored to be touring with the mighty Machine Head," the guitarist says. "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!"
For Gates to Hell, this tour is a pretty full-circle experience: "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."
