Metal icons to play seven dates in May 2018 in support of their upcoming eighth album Catharsis

Machine Head have announced UK tour dates for May 2018, with presale tickets for O2 customers on sale now and tickets on general sale on Fri 29 Sep at 10am.

The metallers, all the way from Oakland, California, are gearing up to release their new album Catharsis in January, and will be touring the world in support.

It's the ninth full-length release from the group which was formed in 1991 by Robb Flynn (vocals, guitar) and Adam Duce (bass). The current line-up features Dave McClain on drums, Phil Demmel on guitar and Jared McEachern on bass.

Their first album since 2014's critically acclaimed Bloodstone & Diamonds, there's great anticipation surrounding the release of Catharsis. Fans can expect more of Flynn's screams and growls, with technically precise guitars and sinister lyrical content the order of the day.
