Melvins Announce 30th Anniversary Tour

Melvins Announce 30th Anniversary Tour
It's hard to believe, but noise rock legends the Melvins have been confounding listeners for 30 years, and the band will celebrate three decades of sonic lunacy this summer on an anniversary tour.

Both the Melvins and their Melvins Lite variation are currently out in Europe, but a press release confirms that the outfit proper will crush it in North American clubs between July and August. A lone Canadian date has been booked at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom on August 19. Joining the act on the anniversary trip are superboogie band Honky.

You can see the North American dates down below and the Melvins' European schedule over here.

"Has it really only been 30 years?" vocalist/guitarist/founder Buzz Osborne said in a statement of the celebratory trip. "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!"

While the Melvins will no doubt toast their own catalogue on the upcoming tour, the band are set to drop their new covers set Everybody Loves Sausages on April 30 through Ipecac.
