Unhinged musical acts OXX and MACHINIST! have announced a run of East Coast US tour dates together for early this spring. While these two acts are separated by an ocean, they share many common threads woven together in the fabric of the Nefarious Industries roster.
Based out of Arhaus, Denmark, OXX delivers scathing and dynamic metallic hardcore tinged with punk, grind, and alternative influences. The band made their Nefarious Industries debut in 2019 with the release of their thoroughly unstable The Skeleton Is Just A Coat Hanger; These Are The Black Strings That Make You Dance LP, which was met with excellent reactions from media outlets and fans alike. The band’s altered lineup then toured the US for over a month, performing with label kin Nequient, PAK, Mine Collapse, Those Darn Gnomes, Gridfailure, Blackthorne, and others, including MACHINIST!, who now weaves their way into the label collective even further.
Valdosta, Georgia’s MACHINIST! shares a hometown and has toured with Nefarious outfit Dying Whale, in addition to having performed live with many Nefarious acts who have toured through the Southeastern US in recent years, including OXX on their 2019 tour. The band’s cranked-up and dynamic metallic hardcore has been documented through their prior releases issued through the likes of Eulogy Recordings, Innerstrength Records, and more, and after having flirted with the Nefarious roster in so many ways, the band will issue an official release through Nefarious in the months ahead.
OXX and MACHINIST! will now coalesce their gnarled sounds on an Eastern US tour running from March 23rd through April 2nd, where a wide array of local acts will join in the melee including Nefarious bros Bedtimemagic and more. With shows confirmed in Orlando, Valdosta, Charlotte, Chesapeake, Harrisonburg, New Hampton, Cambridge, Jersey City, Philadelphia, and New York City, additional details being finalized this week. See the confirmed dates below and watch for updates to post in the days ahead, with additional release news from both bands to follow.
