After over a year off of the road writing and recording the bands' newest full length release "Unto The Locust" (due out in September), Machine Head will start their tour cycle with 2 dates leading into the Summer's hottest tour - the Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2011. The band will be playing July 5th at Club Vegas in Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as July 7th in Reno at The Knitting Factory. These dates will mark the first time the band has taken the stage since March of last year after a relentless 3 years of touring for the critically acclaimed album "The Blackening".
These shows will be the only two U.S. headline dates in 2011 and both feature the band in an intimate setting, facilitating the kind of close connection with their fans that ignites the crushing live performances that so many of the bands' die-hard fans have come to expect. If you are anywhere near Salt Lake City or Reno, these shows are not to be missed.
