In only one weeks time, Machine Head will make their long awaited return to the UK for their first set of live shows since their February 2010 tour with Hatebreed, and their first ever UK arena headlining shows. With the acclaimed album Unto The Locust released to the masses and added to the bands impressive song catalogue, Machine Head’s legions of fans can look forward to seeing them play some of the biggest shows of their career, especially the tour’s opening night at Wembley Arena.
Machine Head aren’t not coming alone either; Formidable support will accompany Robb, Dave, Adam and Phil on their jaunt across the British Isles. Sheffield’s own marmite metal collective Bring Me The Horizon provide the main support, as they return to a venue which last December saw their set cut short (whilst support Bullet For My Valentine) due to Oli Sykes and co having incited “too many moshpits” (Wembley could be in real trouble if they think they can stop that on this tour…). Not to be outdone, and speaking of circle pits, the masters of the largest circle pits in the world Devildriver are coming along for the fun too, with Dez and co having the potential to upstage all the other bands on the bill with their ferocious live performances. Last but certainly not least, Washington D.C’s Darkest Hour round off the bill for the tour, promising to pummel the senses with tracks from their most recent album The Human Romance as well as some old favourites.
