going anywhere, if those people want to be a part of this, they know where to find us. So for the time being, and maybe 'forever' we're done reaching out for them."
Sounds like a good point. Every metal show I've seen in my life has always featured support acts, so I wouldn't mind seeing one without support acts. I mean, I've seen Rush 3 times, and like I said they always have no support acts, so I can totally live with that.
Machine Head just released their much-anticipated new studio album Bloodstone & Diamonds today in North America via Nuclear Blast Records, and let me just say that it's just EPIC! Listen to the track "Night Of Long Knives" over to the right.
The tour will also feature VIP ticket packages, and they will include a meet and greet with the band, group photo with the band, a poster, flag, laminate and Machine Head koozie. Plus, all VIP ticket purchasers will be entered in a raffle to win an autographed Bloodstone & Diamonds electric Flying V guitar.

Well Head Cases, it's the announcement you've been waiting for. Machine Head have announced their rescheduled North American tour set to take place from mid-January to early March 2015. This run is more extensive than the run the band previously cancelled which was to feature Children Of Bodom, Epica and Battlecross. However, this run has a surprise. There will be absolutely no support acts. The tour is simply dubbed "An Evening With: Machine Head". It sort of reminds me of Rush because they always have no support acts, and they always call their shows "An Evening With: Rush". Robb Flynn speaks about the upcoming tour:
"We're doing 'An Evening With' Machine Head. meaning it'll just be us, folks. We are really excited about the idea, playing longer sets, throwing in some deep cuts, and just having our own world. Promoters in the U.S seem really stoked about it, some have said it feels like 'an event'.
Playing festivals is almost mandatory when touring these days, but Machine Head have vowed not to play any during this touring cycle, and they will only do headlining shows.
We're not trying to have a good time with a bunch of people who don't know who we are. If Machine Head throws a party, big or small, we won't want a bunch of 'strangers' there. This is about us and you guys, the die-hards! The Fucking Undesirables! We don't care about the others out there. We're here and we're not
