Supporting acts for their North American tour will be, Suicide Silence, Darkest Hour, and Rise To Remain. Machine Head’s winter 2012 tour will begin January 15 in Denver, and conclude on February 18 in San Francisco.
Machine Head’s 2012 North American headlining tour will consist of 27 shows over four and a half weeks. Their most recent album, Unto the Locust was released September 27, 2011 via Roadrunner Records. The album debuted on Billboard 200 at No. 22.

The video is directed by veteran Machine Head video director Mike Sloat and features motion picture-quality computer-generated imagery that includes a sinister swarm of locusts enveloping the band in a cloud of darkness and chaos, much like the ominous track itself.
