Machine Head hit UK in December

Machine Head will return to the UK for an 11-date tour in December, with support from Devil You Know and Darkest Hour.

Robb Flynn’s first full headline run in Britain since 2011 follows his band’s five intimate Killers & Kings shows earlier this month.

And the winter dates are set to include material from the band’s upcoming eighth album, which will have been released via Nuclear Blast by the time Machine Head arrive.

Flynn says: “We’re really excited – we can’t fucking wait to play new music for all you Headcases. We have some great support bands lined up, so come out and rage.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday (August 15) via and

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
