MACHINE HEAD and ARCH ENEMY will team up for "The Black Tyranny Tour" beginning in early September. Support on the trek will come from THROWDOWN and SANCTITY.
MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn states: "Man, it's just an endless stream of good news here in MACHINE HEAD-land, we are so fucking stoked to be going out with some of our favorite bands, here in the U.S., on what is sure to be THE most brutal metal tour of the fall! MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY, THROWDOWN and SANCTITY are going to bring the pain to you motherfuckers, and carnage will have no rules on this tour. Beware The Black Tyranny!!!"
ARCH ENEMY's Angela Gossow adds: "ARCH ENEMY teaming up with MACHINE HEAD in the U.S. is a big FUCK YOU to everybody who dwells in the past! We certainly aren't! Instead we're looking forward to crushing the U.S. together and leaving nothing but a tangled wreck of molten metal in our wake!"
Gossow continues, "As an added bonus for ARCH ENEMY fans, this will be the first time in three years that the (recently reunited) Amott brothers will be bringing their insane dual-guitar shredding to American soil! I am very excited to get back on stage and celebrate the sheer power of extreme music, all wrapped up in this fantastic tour package! Let freedom ring with a METAL blast!!!"
