It’s Do or Die for Machine Head as they announce 25th Anniversary Tour for “Burn My Eyes”

The Bay Area titans Machine Head has announced an “An Evening With” tour for Winter 2020, featuring three hours and two sets. See all dates below. They’ve also dropped the video for the new song, “Do or Die” (Imperium Recording x Nuclear Blast). Watch and listen here:

‘Do or Die’ was produced by MACHINE HEAD singer/guitarist Robb Flynn and Zack Ohren (FALLUJAH, ALL SHALL PERISH) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. It was mixed by Russ Russell (AT THE GATES, NAPALM DEATH, SIKTH) at Parlour Studios, UK.

‘Do or Die’ is three minutes and 45 seconds of unadulterated, neanderthal rage. FUCK EVERYONE!,” says frontman Flynn.

Bassist Jared MacEachern concurs, saying, “I’m blown away at how this video turned out. I was fucking pumped up after my first viewing. A pissed off song deserves a pissed off video! It’s a no-holds-barred, in-your-face, ‘fuck off’ kinda song… Ragers rejoice!

Carlos Cruz (WARBRINGER, POWER TRIP) played drums on the track and states, “‘Do or Die’ is by far the most extreme song in the MACHINE HEAD catalog.”

The upcoming Winter 2020 tour of the U.S. and Canada is going to be nothing short of epic. There band will be celebrating the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary on the heels of what is already shaping up to be one of the monster European/UK tours of 2019.

Building on their wildly popular ‘Evening With…’ format, these not-to-be-missed shows will be a three-hour musical extravaganza, comprised of two parts:

Part I – will feature a battery of MACHINE HEAD’s modern classics, such as ‘Imperium,’  ‘Halo,’ ‘Ten Ton Hammer’ and, ‘The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears,’ featuring frontman/guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern performing alongside two, soon-to-be-announced ragers on guitar and drums.

Part II – will feature the Bay Area titan’s classic debut album, “Burn My Eyes” played in its entirety for the first time ever.  And if somehow this historical event could not be monumental enough, taking the stage for this part of the set will be “Burn My Eyes”-era alumni and MACHINE HEAD’s original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist, Logan Mader.

MacEachern states,“Don’t you dare miss this special moment in musical history, as we pay 25 years of tribute to “Burn My Eyes”. The band is sounding tight as ever and the spirits are high. Come relive your adolescent angst and rage with MACHINE HEAD.

New shredder Kiełtyka shares his new bandmates enthusiasm, sayin,  “It’s a huge privilege to be a part of this amazing tour. #BurnMyEyes25 tour reaches more and more places. After rehearsals and pre-production in Germany, I can confirm there is no way you can miss out on this tour.”

And new skins-pounder Matt Alstonsays, “I’m so stoked to be part of the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour. Being on stage with Robb, Jared, and Vogg, performing songs I grew up listening to and in front of thousands of Head Cases is just amazing. AND then being able to have my face melted by the Burn My Eyes show…it just doesn’t get much better than that.”
