Melvins Announce 2017 North American Tour Dates

The Melvins just announced their North American tour dates in support (or is it the other way around) of the band’s upcoming double album, A Walk With Love & Death. A list of those dates can be found below. The dual albums find the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcasing two distinct sides to the band’s music: Death, a proper Melvins’ release and Love, the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short also titled A Walk With Love and Death. The double album will be released on July 7 via Mike Patton’s (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle) imprint Ipecac Records.

“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.”

The albums, which include guests Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes/Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog), were self-produced with engineer Toshi Kosai.
