Forget newspaper announcements. Phil Demmel, guitarist of Machine Head, just announced his engagement to Bleeding Through keyboardist Marta Peterson via Facebook.

The musicians met while on tour in early 2010.

"I met the girl of my dreams in Australia the last time we were down there," Demmel said during a 2011 interview with Hardrock Haven. "One of the greatest things that has ever happened to me was on that run. I have very special memories of Australia and knowing that I was in love for the first time when I was in Brisbane."

Marta Peterson was included in the 2010 edition of Revolver's 'Hottest Chicks in Metal' calendar.

Machine Head will hit the road Jan. 15 and play dates in the U.S., Canada and Australia through March. The band released 'Unto the Locust' in Sept. via Roadrunner Records.
