MACHINE HEAD reden über »Burn My Eyes«

Anfang der Woche hatten MACHINE HEAD die Daten ihrer »Burn My Eyes« 25th Anniversary Tour angekündigt. Nun hat sich die Band zum ersten Mal seit über 20 Jahren des legendären Debüts angenommen und darüber gesprochen. Diese oft überaus witzige Konversation lässt sie sich daran erinnern, wie die Songs geschrieben wurden, sie 1992 zusammenfanden und den Feueralarm im Fantasy Studio durch zu viel Kifferei auslösten.

Gründer und Visionär Robb Flynn dazu “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!”

Flynn weiter: “Having run through deep cuts like ‘Death Church,’ and ‘I’m Your God Now’ for the first time in well over a decade, has reminded me of how fucking heavy our older songs are!  This tour is going to be MASSIVE!! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect to share this milestone with the Head Cases!  So just a head’s up, DO NOT sleep on this! Tell your friends, spread the word, because tickets are going to disappear!”

Logan Mader fügt hinzu, “It’s a huge honor for me to take part in celebrating »Burn My Eyes« 25th birthday! It’s hard to believe this is actually happening. I feel like I won the guitar player lottery.... again. The fact that BME is still relevant today has a lot to do with the fact that Robb has kept the band alive and strong for two and a half decades.  I’m very grateful for this!”

Chris Kontos stimmt ein: 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!”

Jared MacEachern:It’s not everyday that you get to pay tribute to a classic like »Burn My Eyes« and with Logan and Chris in the mix, I’m really excited to bring something special to old and new fans alike.”
