Machine Head have announced the second leg of their tour in support of their latest album Catharsis.

The shows will take place across North America later this year and include six rescheduled dates from the first leg, which were postponed when frontman Robb Flynn had viral bronchitis.

Like the original run of shows, the band will play more than two and a half hours under the An Evening With Machine Head banner.

Flynn says: “We’re really stoked to be hitting the road in the States and our cannabis legalising brothers up in Canada again. 

“After the first tour in support of Catharsis hitting typical Machine Head strongholds like Chicago, Denver, New York and Oakland, we’ve been really looking forward to doing a second North American run that hits all the nooks and crannies. 

“Places that often get left off a traditional tour routing as they are smaller markets, and maybe route way off the the main highways that run through the States.

“We're excited as fuck to get back to places like Missoula, Montana, Minot, North Dakota, Ft Wayne, Nashville, Lubbock Texas, Asheville, North Carolina… we were blown away by theses cities on the last ‘Evening With’ cycle.

“These places were insane, the fans are hungry for aggressive music, they come out and go crazy, get loose, get free, and that’s what we're all about!"

Flynn adds: “Central Canada will be a rager! Can't wait to get back there and I’m actually bringing the gloves and lube for the Canadian border this time, free of charge!”

Tickets will go onside from 10am local time on Friday (July 13). Find a full list of dates below.
