Noise metal pioneers the Melvins will embark on a 12-week North American tour in support of the upcoming double album, A Walk With Love & Death. The new tunes will be released on July 7 by Ipecac Records and the band will share dates with their labelmates Spotlights. See the full itinerary below.

The double album is a special one as it will touch on two distinct personalities of the band. Death will be the real deal, scathing Melvins record, and the other half will be Love, encompassing the score to a Jesse Nieminen directed film that will share the same title as the new album. The film does not have a release date currently but the trailer can be seen below along with tour dates.

“This was a huge undertaking,” explained singer Buzz Osborne. “All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us.” Drummer Dale Crover added, “A Walk With Love and Death is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You’ll sleep with the lights on after listening.”

A Walk With Love & Death will be released on July 7 and will feature Joey Santiago of The Pixies along with members of That Dog and Le Butcherettes.
