Machine Head bassist Adam Duce will miss US dates of the band's Black Tyranny tour due to a broken leg, although the dates will go ahead and Duce is expected to make a recovery before the European leg kicks off.

Duce says:
"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 have announced a warm up date for the tour in Dublin on 18th November.

The Black Crusade tour dates with Trivium, Dragonforce, Shadows Fall and Arch Enemy read as follows:
20th - Glasgow SECC
21st - Manchester MEN
23rd - Birmingham NEC
24th - London Brixton Academy
25th - London Brixton Academy
26th - Cardiff CIA
