In a sincere Facebook live video, Robb Flynn announced today that Machine Head are calling it quits following this tour.
According to Flynn, Phil Demmel quite the band on Wednesday, and Dave McClain followed suit on Thursday. Jared MacEachern, he said, kind of quit but isn’t quite sure. Over the 10-minute monologue, he acknowledges that he the players have grown apart. He adds that he has “held on too tight to the reins of this band, and I have suffocated those guys.” Watch the video below.
Machine Head will kick off what is now their farewell tour on October 4 at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, California. For more information on the tour, visit their site here.
