In an unfortunate turn of events, Machine Head bassist Adam Duce will miss this Fall’s highly-anticipated Black Tyranny Tour in the U.S. due to a broken leg suffered while dirt biking in Redding, CA.  Initially thought to be nothing more than a bad sprain, x-rays later confirmed the break, which required surgery to attach a steel plate and two screws to the broken bone.

A disappointed Duce laments, “It sucks to be in this position, because we have such a killer tour set up for the end of the summer and now we’ll have to find a replacement for me. I’ve never missed one show that this band has ever played up to this point and I never thought I would see the day when Machine Head would be playing and I wouldn’t be on stage.”

The band are currently rehearsing with temporary bassist candidates and are in the final stages of selecting Duce’s replacement, the details of which will be announced as soon as they are determined.  All Black Tyranny dates in the U.S. will go on as scheduled, and Duce will be returning for the Australian and European legs of The Black Crusade Tour, beginning with the band’s Loudpark date in Japan.

The Black Tyranny Tour promises night after pummeling night of power from some of metal’s finest.  From the first note to the last, The Black Tyranny Tour will be spoken of long after it crushes your town, so if there is one show this year that you can’t afford to miss, this is it.  Prepare, The Black Tyranny is coming your way!
