Bay Area Thrashers Machine Head announce the first leg of their 25th Anniversary tour for the band’s classic debut, Burn My Eyes. The dates kick off in Germany on October 5th in Freiburg, continue across Europe and the UK, wrapping in Dublin, Ireland on 8th November. The US leg will be announced in due course for November into December as the tour makes its way around the globe.
Continuing with their wildly popular ‘An Evening With…’ format, these not-to-be-missed shows will be a
founder and visionary, Robb Flynn tells us “Having started rehearsals with Chris and Logan several weeks ago, I’m literally giddy with excitement at the prospect of how much fun this is going to be. Both Logan and Chris are in phenomenal playing shape, the
vibe between all four of us has been incredibly positive, and having run through deep cuts like ‘Death Church’ and ‘I’m Your God Now’ for the first time in over a decade, has reminded me of how fucking heavy our older songs are! This tour is going to be MASSIVE!!
Do not sleep on this, tell your friends, spread the word, because tickets are going to disappear!”
Mader adds, “It’s a huge honor for me to take part in celebrating ‘Burn My Eyes’ 25th birthday! It’s hard to believe this is actually happening. I feel like I won the guitar player lottery…. again. The fact that BME is still relevant today has a lot to
do with the fact that Robb has kept the band alive and strong for two and a half decades. I’m very grateful for this!”
Chris Kontos echoes the sentiment, stating “This is an absolute mind blower! Playing these songs again after 23 years feels just amazing. The fact that it’s 25 years later and the BME record is still relevant and revered is humbling
Machine Head’s Lord of the low end, bassist Jared
