After touring through the world with Slipknot and then Metallica, "The Black Procession" provides Machine Head with the opportunity to put on a full headline show before closing out their epic tour cycle. Drummer Dave McClain exclaims "It's going to be awesome to get out there and rock a full set, to mix it up night after night, and be able to do things 100% our way! It's really just dawning on us that after almost 3 years of touring on "The Blackening" that "The Black Procession" will be the final tour of this cycle... but instead of being in wind-down mode, we're super excited to get out there and crush it one last time! Our fans have been asking for a full-fledged Machine Head tour and we are ready to bring it!"

Singer/Guitarist Robb Flynn adds "It's been an amazing album cycle and we are thankful for the relentless support we get from our fans. We are all well aware of the fact that the touring market around the world is in a tough spot due to economic conditions, and it's great and humbling to be able to actually add dates to this tour in spite of that fact. We can't wait to see all you crazy fuckers out there!"
