Machine Head have announced the first leg of a tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 1994 debut album, 'Burn My Eyes'.

Following an extensive European run, the band will head to Manchester, Glasgow, Belfast, Dublin and London, where they'll play the O2 Academy Brixton, during November. Tickets go on general sale at 10am on March 29.

The shows will comprise of two parts. The first will cover their back catalogue and find frontman and guitarist Robb Flynn and bassist Jared MacEacheam performing with two other musicians on guitar and drums, who'll be announced at a later date.

The second half of the show will see the band perform 'Burn My Eyes' in its entirety for the first time. For this set they'll be joined by original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader. Flynn said:

“Having started rehearsals with Chris and Logan several weeks ago, I’m literally giddy with excitement at the prospect of how much fun this is going to be. Both Logan and Chris are in phenomenal playing shape, the vibe between all four of us has been incredibly positive, and having run through deep cuts like ‘Death Church’ and ‘I’m Your God Now’ for the first time in over a decade, has reminded me of how fucking heavy our older songs are!  This tour is going to be MASSIVE!! Do not sleep on this, tell your friends, spread the word, because tickets are going to disappear!”

Kontos added:

“This is an absolute mind blower!  Playing these songs again after 23 years feels just amazing. The fact that it's 25 years later and the BME record is still relevant and revered is humbling to say the least.  Doing a huge world tour in celebration of the record is a great way to acknowledge the legacy of MACHINE HEAD’s past and future.  I'm so looking forward to sharing these songs with the MACHINE HEAD fans around the world.  Can't wait to meet all you ‘Head Cases’ out there!  You can be sure it is going to be a crushing night! See ya soon!”

Machine Head will also take the tour across North America later in the year. Dates have not yet been announced but are expected to take place in November and December.
