I’ve snagged the poster, the full press release and the dates for you all to scramble and fit in your planners so check it all out below. I’ll return with some closing thoughts at the end.

We have already done two direct support tours in North America, for our latest album with Soulfly and Fear Factory, where we gained a lot of new fans.

Just when you thought you were getting a break from the tour announcements I say to you NEVER!!!!! Which of course is a very good thing. Check out this one that I received a short while ago from the fine folks at Nuclear Blast Records about the upcoming adventures of Soulfly. The press release and dates follow the poster below so check it out.
The Press Release:
Metal icons SOULFLY will embark on a four week headlining tour across the United States starting this April. Joining them are brutal death metal legends SUFFOCATION, Metal Blade recording artists BATTLECROSS, along with ABORMALITY and LODY KONG. Comments mailman Max Cavalera. “We are coming again with another kick in your face package! Get ready to sell your soul to metal!!” Continue reading Soulfly Announces Headlining US Tour With Suffocation→
Looks like the summer is going to be a whole lot hotter thanks to Kirk Windstein and his merry mates in Crowbar as they’ve recently revealed a few weeks of tour dates for the summer months. Well, that is provided we actually get a proper summer in 2015 as opposed to what hit us last year. Check out the poster below and then we can discuss it briefly.
While I hate to be the bearer of bad news, I fear that I must do so again as I share with you the knowledge that Machine Head has canceled their upcoming 2014 US Tour. The run would have found them joined by Children of Bodom, Epica and Battlecross which would have been an “interesting” blend of Metal flavors for sure. The reason they are citing is based on their new album taking longer to complete. The bands statement follows the planned tour poster.
I know that the fans of the pummeling force that is known as Machinehead will be losing their sh** as the news about the bands return to the headlining stage was announced today. The band will be embarking on a months’ worth of dates and bring along Children Of Bodom, Epica and Battlecross as a part of the package. Mark me down as both intrigued and slightly confused with the roster but we can talk about that after you see the poster below and read the official press copy which I have provided for your greater levels of awareness.
Press Release: Bay Area Metal Titans, MACHINE HEAD, continue their live domination of North America with the announcement of their 21-show U.S. and Canadian trek in support of their debut studio album for Nuclear Blast Entertainment, due out this fall.
With a devastating line-up that features support from Finnish heavy metal powerhouse CHILDREN OF BODOM, Dutch symphonic metallers EPICA, and American melodic death/thrash openers BATTLECROSS, this epic trek launches on October 4th in Denver, Colorado and includes five Canadian cities before closing out in Hollywood, California on November 1st.
MACHINE HEAD frontman and guitarist Robb Flynn checks in about the touring line-up and the upcoming shows:
“MACHINE HEAD raised the bar with concert production for 2012 ‘s ‘Locust’ tour, and now we plan to raise the bar again with our biggest US show yet, and the strongest line-up out there for 2014, PERIOD! This is a MUST SEE event for any heavy metal fan in America! I am stoked that we were able to join up with our friends in CHILDREN OF BODOM, one of the premier power metal bands of our time, and our friends in BATTLECROSS, who we toured with on Mayhem last year, and are going to bring the old-school thrash vibe. EPICA’s symphonic metal will add a touch of much needed class to the drunken shenanigans that will surely take place on this raucous tour. Come out and be a part of history ladies and gentlemen!” Continue reading Machine Head Announces Headlining Tour For Fall 2014→
