In a new video update, Machine Head’s leader Robb Flynn did a tour of their rehearsal studio in the Bay Area after they suffered from a recent flood, and made the space unusable. Fortunately, all of their touring gear was spared, and the band will still be able to prepare for the upcoming Slaughter The Martour dates withFear Factory. Robb has also asked fans not to start a GoFundMe or other fundraiser for the band, and that fans should take care of themselves and their own, since the holidays are upon us. Tickets are on sale for the tour now, and you can always support the band by buying merch from them, such as their recent anniversary vinyl of Through The Ashes of Empires, out now via Nuclear Blast.
