Hot News: Machine Head – Announce “Killers & Kings” tour for Europe & UK!

MACHINE HEAD are proud to announce the first round of tour dates in 2014 for the UK and Europe. The 15 date “Killers & Kings Tour” will serve as an album primer for more dates in Nov./Dec., but more importantly will hit numerous cities that MACHINE HEAD hasn’t headlined in for over a decade, or in several cases, never headlined, or even played, at all.

Says vocalist / guitarist Robb Flynn“In keeping with the intimate club tour-vibe we are doing in the USA this summer, for our first time ever, we decided to blow off 90% of all Euro summer festivals, and hit the nooks and crannies of the UK and Europe as well.  We will be doing no major cities in any territories throughout Europe and the UK for this first leg of 2014.

No London, no Berlin, etc, and instead focusing on the die-hard MACHINE HEAD fans that who don’t often get the chance to see us because the travel is too far or too costly to get the big cities. 

I remember when we were out with METALLICA doing festivals a few years ago, we played in a small out-of-the-way city in Denmark called Aarhus, we’d never played there let alone, ever even heard of the fucking place. We were all a bit grumbly before the show, and you know what? It ended up being one of the funnest shows we’ve ever done.  Doing shows like this, it creates an energy, it creates a bond, something unbreakable, and it is really fucking fun.  It’s MACHINE HEAD without all the big production, the bells and whistles, stripped down and raw.

What will be really cool is that in the UK, we’ve never done a club tour, it happened so fast for us there that other than a handful of epically insane, wildly drunken Ten Ton Hammer club shows, we’ve only played bigger halls, so we are really looking forward to giving our fans something special there. Plus, we’ve been hearing from our Scottish fans for decades that we need to get to Edinburgh!!! So finally, 21 years into our existence, we’re coming, and we’re ready to fucking plunder Scotland!!!!“

This summer Nuclear Blast Entertainment will have the privilege of releasing MACHINE HEAD’s next full-length album, the band’s debut for the label. In anticipation and to celebrate Record Store Day (April 19, 2014), we’re excited to release a limited edition 10” featuring a demo version of a brand new track entitled ‘Killers & Kings’. Never heard or released before, MACHINE HEAD fans have been waiting for new music from the band for the last 3 years and ‘Killers & Kings’ does not disappoint. Side B of the release will also feature MACHINE HEAD covering a track by the southern CA hardcore outfit, IGNITE.

“I remember growing up in the thrash scene and always wanting to hear the demo version of songs,” commented vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn“You searched them out. Thankfully my buddy Jim was a big ‘tape trader,’ and through trading we had both METALLICA demos, EXODUS demos, bootlegs of songs sometimes ‘years’ before they came out. I knew how to play every note of »Pleasure Of The Flesh« by EXODUS, easily 2 years before the record was out! My friends and I would debate the merits of each, but we all agreed, It was so much cooler to hear it BEFORE the album is out! So we’re gonna do that for you. I can’t wait for you guys to hear this stuff.”  

This limited edition 10” will also feature four alternate covers with two specific colors, each limited to 1,000 copies each.

‘Killers & Kings’ 10” tracking listing:


Side One: Killers & Kings (demo version)

Side Two: Our Darkest Days/Bleeding (IGNITE cover)

MACHINE HEAD are currently in the studio recording their eighth album for a summer 2014 release.
