THIS IS BIG.

If you've ever been to a Machine Head show, you know that they are a fantastic live band and arguably sound better live than they do recorded.

Their last release Bloodstone & Diamonds proved to be a major therapy session for the entire band in response to the 2013 departure of former bassist Adam Duce. How much more is left for the band to reveal about that period in their history? We'll find out with a new album called Catharsis, due in January.

Machine Head just announced the Catharis tour (one that's strictly "An Evening With...", just like their last one).

Mark your calendar for February 22nd at First Ave in Minneapolis! That's when they'll be in Minnesota.

General ticket on-sale begins at 10 am local on Friday, September 22nd.
