Machine Head announce first-ever Asia shows; plan fall North American tour

Machine Head 1

Today, Machine Head announced their first ever shows in Asia. Following their visits to Latin America, Australia, and Japan, the band will be stopping in Thailand and Taiwan. Frontman Robb Flynn said of the upcoming shows:

“Going to Asia has been a dream of ours for a long time, we’ve heard so many stories about insane fans over there, and it really seems like this part of the world is opening for metal bands! Maybe the president of Indonesia being a metalhead is having a good influence on world affairs over there!. For us to be able to bring An Evening With Machine Head to a new continent is very exciting challenge for us, and we’re SO ready to crush it!”

The pair of shows will be followed by the European leg of their world tour in support of their latest effort Bloodstone & Diamonds. The band also announced that a second leg of North American dates is in the works for November, more details as they become available. All dates follow:
