“The Black Procession” will cap off what has been an incredible 3 year journey for MACHINE HEAD in support of their highly acclaimed, Grammy nominated album “The Blackening”. MACHINE HEAD drummer Dave McClain states “It’s going to be awesome to get out there and rock a full set, to mix it up night after night, and be able to do things 100% our way! It’s really just dawning on us that after almost 3 years of touring on “The Blackening” that “The Black Procession” will be the final tour of this cycle… but instead of being in wind-down mode, we’re super excited to get out there and crush it! Our fans have been asking for a full-fledged MACHINE HEAD tour and we are ready to bring it!”

Singer/Guitarist Robb Flynn adds “It’s been an amazing album cycle and we are thankful for the relentless support we have from our fans. We are all well aware of the fact that the touring market around the world is in a tough spot due to economic conditions, and it’s great and humbling to be able to actually add dates to this tour in spite of that fact. We can’t wait to see all you crazy fuckers!”

MACHINE HEAD will be closing out 2009 with the rest of their U.S. support dates with Megadeth, leading into a string of western U.S. support dates with Metallica, culminating in a hometown show featuring both of the Bay Area metal titans on December 12 in San Jose, CA.
