The Melvins return to U.S. highways this fall as the band preps for a 10-week tour across the country, kicking off on Sept. 3 at The Casbah in San Diego.
“Redd Kross and ShitKid are two of my favorites. We’ve already done fantastic European tours with both of these bands so I know bringing them out with us on this trip will be a total mind blower for the lucky fans,” said Buzz Osborne of the tour line-up.
Joining the Melvins for the tour are Redd Kross and Sweden’s ShitKid. Redd Kross, who are prepping a new album, and the Melvins share a communal band member with bass player Steven McDonald performing in both outfits. Melvins’ drummer Dale Crover will also pull double duty, manning the drums for both his band and Redd Kross. Tickets are on-sale this Friday, May 17, at 10 am local time.
The Melvins’ most recent release is Pinkus Abortion Technician, which arrived in April of 2018 via Ipecac Recordings. The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players Steve McDonald and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers) appearing on each song. The album boasts singles “Embrace The Rub” (https://youtu.be/cnbeRJGygtg) and “Don’t Forget to Breathe” (https://youtu.be/E33KoJYM7Rk)
