The Melvins Announce North American Tour to Celebrate Band’s 30th Anniversary

Melvins TourSludgy alt-rock legends the Melvins have just announced a string of North American dates to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary.

The Melvins are one of the hardest working bands on the planet. Touring constantly, the Melvins recently achieved a world record by performing in all 50 states plus a show in Washington D.C. during a 51-day period. The world record tour must have been a draining experience for the band, but like true road warriors, the Melvins are hitting the road once again for a summer North American tour, taking rock band Honky with them for the ride.

“Has it really only been 30 years?” asks singer / guitarist Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!”

The Melvins are set to release the covers album ‘Everybody Loves Sausages’ on April 30. Spin is currently streaming the album, which features covers of classic tracks by Queen, Venom, the Kinks and many more.
