Guitarist/vocalist Robb Flynn and bassist Adam Duce of San Francisco Bay Area metallers MACHINE HEAD visited Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, Oklahoma on February 13 and spent about an hour answering students’ questions. You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.
The student who filmed and uploaded the clip said, “[Robb and Adam] came to visit our school, Booker T. Washington High School, because our guitar teacher knew Adam Duce and I asked him to see if he could get at least Adam Duce to come to hang out. I could never believe that Robb Flynn would drop by with him as well! They played later on that night at the House of Blues on February 13, 2012, and I headbanged and moshed like none before at the concert!”
MACHINE HEAD is currently taking part in a North American headlining with support from SUICIDE SILENCE and DARKEST HOUR.
MACHINE HEAD‘s new album, “Unto The Locust”, sold more than 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 22 on The Billboard 200 chart — putting MACHINE HEAD in the Top 25 for the first time in the band’s 17-year history.
MACHINE HEAD has consistently averaged more than 100,000 copies sold in the U.S. for each of its seven albums and has shifted double that overseas (accruing several silver records in the U.K.), resulting in cumulative worldwide sales of more than 2.4 million.
MACHINE HEAD‘s previous CD, “The Blackening”, opened with just under 15,000 units back in April 2007 to debut at No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s 2004 effort, “Through The Ashes Of Empires”, premiered with less than 12,000 copies to land at No. 88.
