Machine Head is in the news yet again! Of late, the band just can't seem to catch a break. Machine Head has this time been forced to put on hold their current North American tour with Dethklok, All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder in order for their frontman, Rob Flynn, to undergo surgery.
For the third time in a row, the corporate powers behind Walt Disney Properties have once again pressured promoter Live Nation into canceling Machine Head's performance at a House of Blues venue on Disney property, this time the December 4th show in Orlando, FL.
"Darkness Within", a brand new video from US groove thrashers Machine Head has premiered and is now available for viewing below. The song is taken from the band's seventh album Unto The Locust, released last year through Roadrunner Records. The clip was directed by Robb Flynn, Milan Basel and Jorge Nunez.

"Locust" comes off the band's latest album, Unto The Locust, which was released on September 2011 via Roadrunner Records.

Check the handful of dates below.
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!"

As if that wasn't enough, the band also got a brand-new video clip to whet your appetite!
Machine Head announced that the band will no longer play the upcoming Sonisphere Festival at Knebworth, UK:
"It is with the utmost disappointment that we must announce that Machine Head will not be playing the Sonisphere date at Knebworth in the U.K. on August 2nd.
In a turn of events that has left us absolutely baffled, the promoter of the U.K. Sonisphere festival recently placed, unbeknownst to us, Limp Bizkit in our 3rd slot on the festival. Seeing as the running order was a significant part of the negotiation and agreement between us and the promoter, and the fact that we had been advertised in that slot since the festival's announcement, you can imagine our surprise when we were "told" that we would now be playing in the 4th slot, under Limp Bizkit, and bizarrely, it was actually expected that we would quietly move down the bill without issue. We will not.
