METAL icons Machine Head have announced that their UK headline tour for this December includes a Devon date.
Fans who missed the band on their intimate five-date Killers And Kings tour earlier this month can now hope to catch the Bay Area band in their winter run. They head to Plymouth Pavilions on December 11.
Frontman Robb Flynn is looking forward to it. He said: “We’re really excited to announce the UK dates for our first full headline tour since 2011. We can't wait to play new music for all you Head Cases. We have some great support bands lined up, including Howard Jones’ (ex-Killswitch Engage) new band Devil You Know and one of the best bands around that happen to be some of the greatest dudes to hang with – our friends in Darkest Hour. So come out and rage with The Head, UK.”
With a new album set for release later this year via the band’s new record label home Nuclear Blast, fans could expect Machine Head to bust out a few new tracks on this upcoming tour.
Venue marketing manager Dawn Sloggett said: “We’re really excited to be announcing such a high profile metal act for the Autumn season as it has been some time since we last had a metal band in the Arena and Plymouth have been crying out for one for some time!”
Tickets go on sale Friday, August 15 at 9am.
Machine Head are at Plymouth Pavilions on Thursday, December 11. Tickets: £28.25. Box office: 08451 461460 or www.plymouthpavilions.com.
