In a video post on Facebook yesterday, Robb Flynn, frontman for metal titans Machine Head has announced that the band are splitting up.

"I'll get right to it," says Flynn. "Wednesday night, Phil Demmel quit Machine Head. Yesterday afternoon, Dave McClain quit Machine Head. And Jared [MacEachern] kinda quit, but didn't really know if he was quitting for sure."

In the video, Flynn goes on to say that the band's next tour will continue as a "celebration of Machine Head and this version of the band", but that the members have grown apart apart as individuals and as musicians. "I have held on too tight to the reigns of this band," says Flynn. "And I have suffocated those guys. I got some rough edges, I’m kind of a barnacle, and you know, those rough edges have given us the success we have, but they’ve also hurt the people around me.

Watch the full video from Robb here:

"I’ve got a lot of drive, but I’ve got a lot of anger and rage, and that drive of mine has alienated folks and the band. I ask that you respect Phil and Dave’s decision, as I respect their decision."
