What began as a casual conversation between bands has evolved into a South American tour that will send shockwaves across the continent.
After a long absence from South America, Machine Head will make their presence felt this October, joined by the legendary Sepultura for dates in Brazil, Argentina and Chile that will surely give rabid South American fans a double-fist punch of unforgettable performances.
October will see Machine Head in full tour form after having played the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and Australia's Soundwave Revolution tour in support of their newest crushing release, "Unto The Locust" (due September 2011). Sepultura, who will also be in full-on tour mode in support of their newest album "Kairos" are always devastating live, leaving both bands primed to deliver a set of shows that will be unlike anything South American metal fans ever dared to imagine.
Machine Head vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn exclaims, "Going back to South America is going to be fucking rad! The crowds there are absolutely insane, it has been a long time coming and we cannot wait for this! We've been working on getting back there for a while now and this proved to be a great opportunity." Flynn adds, "This is going to crush, and having Sepultura together with us? Well, all I'll say is that these dates are going to be one hell of a monster unleashed on the crowds in Brazil, Argentina and Chile. No one will be left standing at the end of the night!"
Sepultura frontman Derrick Green adds "We are all looking forward to touring with Machine Head in South America. It was an idea that we have had for some time and it will be a great pleasure to share the stage with them. This is a show that cannot be missed by anyone."
Sure to go down in the annals of South American metal history, this run of shows will feature two sets of master craftsmen together as you've never seen them before, don't miss your opportunity to witness it in person! Check the Tour page for dates and details.
