Watch Pro-Shot Footage Of Machine Head Playing A Small Show In A London Dive Bar

Machine Head recently played a small show at Blondies in London, England for Kerrang!. You can see pro-shot footage of that below:

Machine Head Move London Show From Alexandra Palace To O2 Academy Brixton

The June 5, 2020 date of Machine Head’s “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary tour will now take place at the O2 Academy Brixton instead of Alexandra Palace. According to the band, the venue switch was related to a recent incident in which someone threw beer on the soundboard during their November 2, 2019 show at the O2 Academy Brixton.

The band commented:

“As you all remember, on our recent UK leg of the on-going ‘BURN MY EYES’ 25th Anniversary tour we had the infamous “Beer-Gate” incident, where at the sold-out London show some jackass threw a large pint of beer into our sound board, destroying the $100,000 Midas desk, stopping the show, and pretty much ruining the flow of the evening.

As documented previously it took herculean efforts from our crew, the venue and support staff to get things up and running again some half an hour later. You guys were incredible in your patience and support for us and each other, but nonetheless, it has left us feeling increasingly unhappy about not being able to deliver the show we presented in every single fucking country and every single venue on this first leg of the tour, not to mention in one of our favorite venues of all time, with a history that dates back to ground zero for Machine Head.

And while the overwhelming response was insanely positive, with people saying it was a once-in-a-lifetime event, we have decided to take action and move our London show in June next year BACK to the BRIXTON ACADEMY and give you show you were supposed to fucking get!

On top of this news, if you we’re a ticket holder last Saturday’s show we are giving you a heads up and a ‘thank you’ £5 discount off the ticket price for the new show. This offer is active at 12 noon today, and valid for 5 working days.

The link will be deactivated at 5pm Friday 22nd November. All purchased tickets for Alexandra Palace will also be valid for the venue switch too and will be valid for the £5 rebate

AGAIN, JUST TO BE CLEAR:

• Head Cases who have only booked for Ally Pally, tickets remain valid for Brixton Show

• Head Cases who booked for 2nd Nov Brixton show + Ally Pally show, tickets valid for Brixton and will automatically be refunded £5 as gesture of goodwill, and for you just being freakin’ awesome!

• Head Cases who booked for 2nd Nov Brixton show but NOT Ally Pally will be sent an email with link and unique single use password which will give them access to ‘priority booking period’ and discounted by £5 for NEW Brixton show.

• Offer runs from 12pm on Monday 18th Nov – 5pm on Friday 22nd Nov

• At 5pm on Friday 22nd Nov the new Brixton show will go on public sale at full price.

Thank you to all who attended this very special night with us, lets get it fucking right this time!!

– Machine Head“

Machine Head’s London Show Got Screwed Up After Someone Threw A Beer On The Soundboard

Machine Head had to stop their November 2 concert in London, England after someone threw a beer on the soundboard during their “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary set. The incident resulted in a 20 minutes delay and did “compromise the rest of the show.”

The group commented:

“LONDON!! Last night was tough.

First off: We want to thank every single person who attended last nights incredible show. Selling out Brixton Academy in 8 hours, was quite frankly mind-blowing! It was unfortunate that some asshole had to throw a full 32 ounce beer on our soundboard, and completely take it out of commission during the Burn My Eyes set. Your patience and respect to us, and each other, during the whole 20 minute debacle was admirable, and we can’t thank you enough.

It did however compromise the rest of the show, and for that we are incredibly sorry. You deserved better than that, and due to consequences beyond our control, we could not deliver that.

Our awesome crew, and specifically our bad ass soundman Steve Lagudi, scrambled to reroute everything over to our monitor board, and as you all know, after a 20 minute break, we were miraculously able to finish the show. Had he not been so quick on his feet about what to do, the show likely could never have finished.

Please give Steve a GIGANTIC thank you in the comments below for saving the fucking day!

We are also incredibly thankful to Andy Coppings crew at the O2 Academy for stepping up big time. Josh Rosen the general manager of the Brixton was fucking incredible, he let us play a half an hour over the EXTREMELY strict curfew, and all of the venue security volunteered their time to allow us to finish the show, out of respect for the band, and our long 25 year history with the Brixton.

It was beyond humbling.

Please give Josh and his crew a MASSIVE thank you in the comments below for helping save the fucking show last night!

We do understand the venue sound was completely compromised for the remainder of the set, and again that is very, very disappointing to us

And while we were able to pull it all together at the end, we really feel like we need to do something special to make it up to the people who attended.

London deserves better than that.

We are so grateful for everyone who came out last night to celebrate this amazing moment in Machine Head history. It was a stark and vivid reminder of why you are some of the greatest Head Cases on the entire planet!”

Watch Pro-Shot Footage Of Machine Head’s Full “Burn My Eyes” 25th Anniversary Show In Bochum, Germany

Machine Head have shared pro-shot footage of their entire October 14 show at the RuhrCongress in Bochum, Germany. That date was part of the band’s “Burn My Eyes” 25th anniversary tour in which the group have been performing two sets. The first set finds frontman Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern performing “modern classics” with guitarist Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka (Decapitated) and drummer Matt Alston (Devilment), while the second set finds the two performing “Burn My Eyes” in full with guitarist Logan Mader and drummer Chris Kontos. The Bochum concert was originally livestreamed via Nugs.net.

Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Discusses Lyrical Inspiration Behind “Do Or Die”

Machine Head’s Robb Flynn has taken to social media to discuss the lyrical inspiration for the band’s latest single “Do Or Die.” The track has been met with some controversy and it even led to a bit of a squabble with Dope after Flynn blasted haters on Instagram.

Flynn said the following about the song:

“If you’re an angry person, then you know what it means when there’s a fury inside you that simmers just below the surface. For me it’s a rage that can fill my mouth (and in the past, my fists) with bile and I’m not satisfied until that bile’s reached its victim.

I, like so many of us, am fucked up in the head. I’ve felt as if the world was against me from the day I was born. My upbringing, like millions of others, was fueled by an uncontrollable rage. So those like me, we learned to put on a happy face for society, a laugh here, a smile there, but deep down that rage never goes away.

That same rage has helped guide me through 33 years in the music business. You don’t last this long in this business being “happy.” Happy is contentment and that’s never been me. You last in the music business due to a hatred inside. A hatred that burns a fire so bright, that it can only be extinguished by music.

It’s made for some beautiful hate filled songs…

However, living with that fire inside comes with consequences.

It is a gift and a curse.

I write songs for a living, but I also write songs to live.

Some people love them and connect with them beyond my wildest dreams, some people hate them and wish they never heard ’em, and that’s okay too.

I’ve taken my lumps, I’m still standing and I’m never going away.

In fact I’m coming back hard as fucking nails.

This is Do Or Die.”

Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Extends Olive Branch To Dope’s Edsel Dope

As previously reported, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn recently slammed Dope after fans pointed out the similarities between Machine Head’s latest single “Do Or Die“ and Dope‘s “Die MF Die.“ Dope frontman Edsel Dope then responded to Flynn, while also sharing some Spotify data to show that Dope actually has slightly more listeners than Machine Head. Now, Flynn has issued a new statement to extend an olive branch to Edsel.

Flynn said the following:

“Hey Edsel,⠀
Saw your response. ⠀
Thanks for the compliments. ⠀
Spotify stats…? Hey, I stand corrected. Apparently there’s a lot of motherfuckers still listening to Dope out there. ⠀

Good for you man.⠀

Though disturbingly CrazyTown’s “Butterfly” has us both beat, but I digress.⠀

Got nothing against Dope at all. Not trying to sound like a douche here, (our bands have not intersected in decades), but I literally didn’t know that you guys were a band anymore. So when your fans started spamming our Facebook / Insta feed about our new song ripping you guys off, I was like huh…?⠀

I actually have fond memories of you and I doing enormous amounts of cocaine on my bus in Oklahoma at some radio show back in 1999 and having a wildly coked-out conversation about doing a tour together that never materialized. In fact I just ran into your former(current? now in Misfits) guitar player Acey at the Slipknot show and he invited all of us into the Misfits.⠀

I have a pretty dark sense of humor, I was literally laughing hysterically when I wrote the first thing that I wrote. Trolling the trolls if you will. It wasn’t aimed at you or even Dope. The second photo of the girl I thought was just cute, and was my way of saying “hey good one”, or, “ya got me!”.⠀

That your band is still on tour and doing well 20 years later is fucking awesome Edsel. As someone who knows the challenges of sticking it out this long in the music business, I’m happy for you. ⠀

I’ll take this moment right now to extend the olive branch to you and your band, that any Machine Head show coming up anywhere in the world, that you guys want to come and hang at, you are welcome to. Have some beers, vodka, champagne, whatever (I’ll have to pass on the cocaine🤪) just say the word, and I’ll make it happen. Maybe you could even come up and sing the “Do Or Die” with us. ⠀

Totally understand if you want to pass in light of everything, but the offer stands.⠀

Peace and love bro⠀

Robb!”
