Following the release of their 10th full-length album “ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN” to staggering 10/10 reviews across the board and Top 10 charting across the globe, MACHINE HEAD will embark on an intimate venue tour through small-town America as part of their Electric Happy Hour (Live).  Dates include some tour favorites that MACHINE HEAD have had over the years including oft-missed places such as Minot, North Dakota, Springfield, Missouri, Huntington, West Virginia and Charleston, South Carolina.

Enthuses frontman/founder Robb Flynn, “Were fucking STOKED to get out and demolish venues in some of our favorite small towns in America. We have had an awesome and productive pandemic break writing our new album ‘ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN,’ but now it’s time for Machine Head to go melt some faces!! The reaction to our ‘Electric Happy Hour (Live)’ shows in Scotland so far are nothing short of incredible, so for this first leg of this U.S. run we will continue and will see us performing solo for 2 ½ to 3 hours a night.”  We LOVED performing our online shows which we dubbed Electric Happy Hour for you Head Cases over the pandemic, the loose, beer-drenched and unscripted setlist, the deep-cuts, the random cover songs, it gave us the freedom to do whatever the fuck we wanted for as long as we wanted every night was liberating.  It’s not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again.  We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it’s the best feeling in the world, so come down and rage!!”  

Bassist Jared MacEachern proclaims, “We’re finally bringing ‘ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN’ and more to you, America! We’re gonna kick it off in the small towns, a real nooks and crannies kind of run. We’re gonna be raging right in each others faces, so be ready for a sweaty, beer-drenched, throat-ripping good time!

MACHINE HEAD’s new album, “ØF KINGDØM AND CRØWN,” is a 13-track concept album set in a decimated futuristic wasteland where the sky is stained crimson red. The crux of the story is based on two main characters: 
Character #1 Ares: (pronounced Aries), our main, who loses the love of his life (Amethyst) and goes on a murderous rampage against the vile sect responsible for her murder.
Character #2 Eros: (pronounced Arrows) the perpetrator, who loses his mother to a drug overdose and becomes radicalized in the aftermath. Eros goes off the deep end, manifesting his own killing spree. 
The album’s lyrics detail how their lives intertwine.
The colossal concept album comes with a list of equally colossal packaging for various physical formats, including 16 different vinyl editions worldwide, a deluxe vinyl box set (with bonus tracks), CDs (both old-school long box and jewel box options), multicolor cassettes, and a limited-edition Digipak with bonus tracks.
