Let's party like its 1995! Melvins will team with Unsane (!) for a string of forthcoming tour dates, including a show at Webster Hall on April 29th. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale on January 20th at noon. No word on the rest of the tour dates thus far.

Make sure and head by the merch table and scoop up a copy of the tour-only split while you're there. The split will see Melvins covering Unsane and vice versa (!). The Thomas Hazelmyer (founder of Am-Rep) art for said split is above.

oh man, so going to this/buying that split

Awesome, although if they were really gonna go 90s this would also need Helmet and Rollins Band

I'm going to go ahead and make a real controversial statement...

I can't get into the Melvins at all. Which is strange because I love Fantomas. But the Melvins just don't do it for me.

I love the Melvins circa 1992-2004, but once the Big Business guys joined I started really disliking them. And after waiting ten years to see them last year I was severely disappointed. Probably the most disappointed I've ever been after a show, I don't think I'll ever got see them again, and aside from buying some of their back catalog that I still don't have I won't buy any of their music.

Never Ones To Let Our Brothers Down! Coady and Dale will be filling in for Vinny from the Unsane while he recovers from a serious issue with his hip. Get well soon brother! Melvins/ Unsane tour starts tonight In San Jose! See you there!

also, melvins lite are touring in september, expected to be this insanity trevor dunn keeps talking about:

That brings me up to June [since changed obviously] which I can't talk too much about right now nor the months that follow because it's secret and probably completely insane, but let's just say that I plan on setting a world record this year. And I'm not even fucking kidding.
To this he added that preparing for a U.S. tour with the Melvins: 50 states in 50 days, starting with Alaska and ending in Hawaii. "It's going to be crazy. Let's take a plane to Alaska and then we will go the rest of the States in a van, a daily non-stop"

I spoke with Trevor last week. He said that the tour will happen in Fall 2012. There will actually be 51 stops in 51 days as they are also playing Washington D.C. Everything will be done via car with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska.

2 dates have surfaced thus far:

09/08 - Boise, ID @ Neurolux Lounge
09/26 - Morgantown, WV @ 123 Pleasant Street

04-12-2012, 10:45 PM
09/26 - Morgantown, WV @ 123 Pleasant Street

sweet. Only a 2 hour drive, a free place to stay, many parties. Sounds like it's time to plan a week long stay in Morgantown
