Machine Head To Split Up, Announces Farewell Tour

In a ten minute long video posted on Facebook, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn has announced that the band will split up following a farewell tour. In the video, Flynn stated:

“I’ll get right to it. On Monday night, Phil Demmel quit Machine Head and yesterday afternoon, Dave McClain quit Machine Head and Jared kinda quit but didn’t know if he was quitting for sure. The tour is still going to go on. We have all agreed to make this a celebration of our music and this era of the band.

“We have grown apart as people. Musically we’ve grown apart. I have held on too tight to the reigns of this band and I have suffocated those guys. I have some rough edges, which have given us success as a band but they’ve also hurt the people around me. I have a lot of drive but I have a lot of anger and rage, which has alienated folks in the band.

“I ask that you respect Phil and Dave’s decision, as I respect their decision and I want to say that I’m honoured and grateful for everything they have contributed to Machine Head, which is a lot. Fifteen years with Phil, twenty three years with Dave, innumerable riffs…”

“I don’t know what the future holds. We’re all a little scared. I’m scared and they’re the scared, but if you’re looking for a drummer or guitar player then you can find no better people to have. I wish them well and want success for them.

“I’m gonna do a little bit of soul searching in my life and take a long, hard look at myself and my life. Twenty years of therapy by this point, which apparently wasn’t enough, maybe twenty more! This upcoming tour is going to be a celebration of this music, this lineup, maybe the best lineup this band has ever had. We’re going to end on a positive note, a classy note, so come out and have a drink with us. Maybe not too classy, like white trash classy, hammered and stoned at a metal show kind of classy.

“It’s the end of an era. I did a lot of crying yesterday. I spoke to Jared this morning who said he’s gonna stick around and he’s gonna continue on, which made me happy. It’s going to be like the Ozzy song, ‘Goodbye To Romance.’ You guys have a good Friday, thanks for listening.”
