Machine Head meets with fans to celebrate “Locust” launch
Today, Machine Head kicks off a string of listening events in celebration of the much anticipated release of their new album, Unto The Locust, on September 27th. The first event takes place today in Los Angeles at On The Rox (The Roxy, upstairs) and the other events will take place in New York, Chicago and their hometown, Oakland, California, in the coming days. These events provide fans with an opportunity to celebrate the album’s release with the band and hear the acclaimed new album in its entirety, already being hailed by music journalists world wide as Machine Head’s best offering to date.
Machine Head will join fans, friends and industry at all four events, each unique in its own way, but every one promises to be a night to remember. Says vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn of the festivities, “There are listening parties being held for this release all over the world, but we felt that putting a handful of events together here in the States and attending them ourselves would be a great way to give our fans and friends across the country a chance to hear the album before its release, and us a chance to hang with all of them as that’s happening. We can’t wait!”
These events will be free to attend, but space is limited at some of these venues so please arrive early to ensure entry. To sweeten these events, Unto The Locust will be available for purchase at the Oakland, New York and Chicago parties and a limited number of t-shirts have been produced specifically for each event by Full Metal Jackie, presenter at the Los Angeles event. Some of the first fans to arrive at each of the four events will receive one of the t-shirts for free. All events will also have a limited number of free posters. Hails and Horns Magazine will be giving out copies of their magazine and a number of free subscriptions at the Oakland event!
All of the events will have drink specials and the band’s videographer will be on hand to document what promises to be a great night for the fans and Machine Head!
