Machine-Head-6I’m sure all of Machine Head’s fans will be disappointed at first, but I think they’ll forgive them in the end. Machine Head was set to kick off a tour that began Ocotber 4TH with Children Of Bodom, Epica, and Battlecross, but the band has other plans now. The band has been forced to cancel the tour to work on their upcoming record Bloodstone & Diamonds. The band apparently plans to reschedule the tour for 2015 and full refunds will be taken care of at point of purchase. Here’ s a statement from the band:

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 feel 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 scheduled European tour dates will remain as scheduled.

Machine Head release their 8th album “Bloodstone & Diamonds” (and their first for Nuclear Blast Entertainment) on Nov 7th – EU, and Nov 10th in the U.S. and U.K.
