The band commented:

“Shout out to our booking agent Adam Saunders for being able to reschedule a nearly 2 month long tour through a staggering amount of countries.

While we are thrilled to announce these rescheduled dates and very much look forward to seeing you all, some dates were simply not possible to reschedule, and with the ongoing pandemic, we will be monitoring the situation closely to ensure the reality of doing them.

Of the utmost importance to us is the health and safety of the Head Cases. We will not put you or others at risk, during this unprecedented time. As is quite obvious, nearly all of the dates we’ve listed are still in a “Shelter In Place” situation, with no public gatherings allowed over 10 people.

We are all hoping that this will be sorted out by then, if that is not the case by August, will make a decision as to whether we will be allowed to proceed.

Stay home, wash your hands, social distance, we will power through this friends.

– Machine Head“

Down To Perform At Psycho Las Vegas, Planning New Orleans Show

During an interview with Revolver, Down’s Kirk Windstein (also of Crowbar) talked a bit about the band’s upcoming “NOLA” 25th anniversary shows. He also confirmed that the band will perform at this year’s Psycho Las Vegas and that they are planning a show in New Orleans.

Windstein said the following:

“We’re gonna do some festivals in Europe and Psycho Las Vegas and of course a New Orleans show.”

He also added that the band will strictly remain a side project:

“…Down is back to what it started out as, which is a 100 percent complete side project. Everyone’s other bands are the priority and that’s that. I had a great talk with Phil the other day — he doesn’t even have a cell phone — but I talked with him for about 45 minutes or an hour, and we both agree that it’s a side band. But as far as I know, anything Down does, I’m included.”

Here’s Down’s current dates:

06/17-20 Copenhagen, DEN – Copenhell
06/20 Dessel, BEL – Graspop Metal Meeting
06/19-21 Clisson, FRA – Hellfest
08/14-16 Las Vegas, NV – Psycho Las Vegas
