Well this blows! The mighty Machine Head has just announced that they have to postpone their upcoming U.S. tour with Children Of Bodom, Epica and Battlecross. Here’s their statement: “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.”
While this news sucks, at least their new record, “Bloodstone & Diamonds,” is still set to come out on November 10th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment! So even though we don’t get to see them live this year, at least new material is on it’s way! Look at the positives people! Stay tuned for updated tour dates!
