Metal bands Fear Factory and Machine Head will co-headline the Roadrunner Road Rage Tour, which kicks off Wednesday in Fargo, North Dakota.
The lineup of Roadrunner Records artists will drive through the Midwest and California before cutting through Texas to wind down in Atlanta on October 23, according to a label publicist. Fear Factory will temporarily depart company from their Roadrunner brethren for two shows in October to perform on the Smoke Out tour with Cypress Hill, Deftones, Busta Rhymes and Method Man, among others.
Fear Factory are touring in support of their fourth album, Digimortal, released in April. Machine Head's LP number four, Supercharger, drops October 2 and features the single "Crashing Around You."
Labelmates Ill Ni�o and Chimaira will serve as tour openers, flaunting new albums Revolution Revoluci�n, which hit the streets Tuesday (September 18), and Pass Out of Existence, due October 2, respectively.
