It's been a busy week for MACHINE HEAD. The Bay Area titans announced their "An Evening With" tour for Winter 2020, featuring three hours and two sets, on Monday.

Today, the band dropped the video for the new song "Do or Die" through Imperium Recordings x Nuclear Blast. Watch and listen on KNAC.COM HERE. The track is now available on all digital platforms.

"Do or Die" was produced by MACHINE HEAD singer/guitarist 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 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, POWER TRIP) played drums on the track and states, ""Do or Die" is by far the most extreme song in the MACHINE HEAD catalog."

The upcoming Winter 2020 tour of the U.S. and Canada is going to be nothing short of epic. There band will be celebrating the Burn My Eyes 25th Anniversary on the heels of what is already shaping up to be one of the monster European/UK tours of 2019. The North American tour dates kick off in Phoenix on January 16 in Arizona, and continue across Texas, Florida, New York, Toronto, Chicago, Denver wrapping up at the legendary Fox Theater in their hometown of Oakland on February 21, and then in Anaheim.

The band will building on their wildly popular "An Evening With..." format for a three-hour musical extravaganza consisting of two parts.

Part One will feature a battery of MACHINE HEAD's 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 aforementioned 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.

"North American Head Cases, you have been patiently waiting for what seems like for goddamned-EVER, thank you for your patience, but we are now ready to CRUSH YOUR FUCKING SKULLS," says Flynn. "So ready to get back on the road in the US. Biggest production we have ever had, most insane line-up we have ever had, we have leveled-the-fuck-up for this run! Ready to bring you 3 hours of blood, sweat, tears, pain, rage, and life-affirming metal. Let's fucking do this!" MacEachern states,"Don't you dare miss this special moment in musical history, as we pay 25 years of tribute to Burn My Eyes. The band is sounding tight as ever and the spirits are high. Come relive your adolescent angst and rage with MACHINE HEAD."

Mader adds, "North America! We’re just now finishing rehearsals with full production in Germany for the first leg and holy sh*t... the sound, the lights, the feel and fire are epic beyond anything I've ever been a part of. Can't wait to bring it to the USA and Canada aye! My brain is overloaded with excitement, emotion, and adrenaline."

Kontos echoes the sentiment, saying, "24 years have passed since I having done any touring in the U.S. with MACHINE HEAD, and I'm so looking forward to bringing this incredible tour to the masses. I can honestly say, I think the U.S. 'Head Cases' will be absolutely blown away by The BME 25th Anniversary tour. I can't wait to destroy the States next year."

New shredder Kiełtyka shares his new bandmates enthusiasm, sayin, "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 tour."

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."
