MACHINE HEAD Forced To Postpone North American TourWednesday, 17th September 2014
MACHINE HEAD has posted the following statement, announcing they have postponed their North American tour:
“It is with great disappointment that MACHINE HEAD must announce the postponement of our North American tour this fall. Our new album, Bloodstone & Diamonds, has taken longer to complete than expected and we had to make the difficult choice to either delay the album, let it go out as incomplete, or cancel the tour in order to properly finish and promote the album in the caliber it needs to be done. We decided postponing the tour was the best decision for the record. We feel this record is a milestone, we have something truly special here, but getting there has been a challenge.
“Our vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn just returned from a press tour where he was playing rough mixes and incomplete versions of songs for the press just to try and keep everything on time for our November release date. Refunds will be available for tickets at point of purchase. Look out for rescheduled American tour dates for the beginning of the year. All [previously announced] European tour dates will remain as scheduled.”
MACHINE HEAD will release its new album, Bloodstone & Diamonds, on November 10 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The CD was recorded in part at GREEN DAY’s JingleTown Recording compound in Oakland, California.
