Machine Head drop new track Do Or Die

European Tour kicks off tomorrow

Machine Head

It’s been a busy week for Machine Head. The Bay Area titans kicked off their “An Evening With” European tour, featuring three hours and two sets of metal, and today, the band dropped the video for brand new song, ‘Do or Die’ through Imperium Recordings x Nuclear Blast.  Watch and listen here

The track is available now on all digital platforms

Do Or Die’ was produced by Robb Flynn and Zack Ohren (Fallujah, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. It was mixed by Russ Russell (At The Gates, Napalm Death, Sikth) at Parlour Studios, UK.

“‘Do or Die‘ is three minutes and 45 seconds of unadulterated, neanderthal rage. FUCK EVERYONE!,” says frontman Robb Flynn.

Bassist Jared MacEachern concurs, saying,

“I’m blown away at how this video turned out. I was fucking pumped up after my first viewing. A pissed off song deserves a pissed off video! It’s a no-holds-barred, in-your-face, fuck off kinda song… Ragers rejoice!”

Carlos Cruz (Warbringer, Powertrip) played drums on the track and states,

“’Do or Die’ is by far the most extreme song in the Machine Head catalog.”

The current European tour sees Machine Head celebrating the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary, with the band building on their wildly popular ‘An Evening With…’ format for a three-hour musical extravaganza consisting of two parts. Part One features a battery of Machine’s Head modern classics from the band’s vast catalog, such as ‘Imperium,’ ‘Halo,’ ‘Ten Ton Hammer’ and ‘The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears.’  This set will feature frontman/guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEachern performing alongside new members, Vogg Kiełtyka and Matt Alston on guitar and drums, respectively.  Part Two will feature the band’s classic debut album Burn My Eyes played in its entirety for the first time ever on tour. Taking the stage for this part of the set will be Burn My Eyes-era alumni and original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader.

New shredder, Vogg Kiełtyka is thrilled to join the Machine Head ranks, saying,

“It’s a huge privilege to be a part of this amazing tour. #BurnMyEyes25 tour reaches more and more places. After rehearsals and pre-production in Germany, I can confirm there is no way you can miss out on this.

And new skins-pounder Matt Alston says,

“I’m so stoked to be part of the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary Tour. Being on stage with Robb, Jared, and Vogg, performing songs I grew up listening to and in front of thousands of Head Cases is just amazing. AND then being able to have my face melted by the Burn My Eyes show…it just doesn’t get much better than that.”
