The Melvins playing Double Door on 30th anniversary tour, streaming new covers LP


“Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player 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!”

King Buzzo, Dale Crover, and co., who are currently on the road in Europe, will be celebrating their 30th anniversary with a summer North American tour. That tour includes a performance at their home-away-from-home in Chicago: The Double Door on July 22 with support from Honky. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (4/27) at noon CST. All dates can be found at the bottom of this post.

The Melvins are also readying their new covers album, titled Everybody Love Sausages, for release on April 30 via Ipecac. It features some great special guests, like Scott Kelly (of Neurosis), Mark Arm (of Mudhoney), Jello Biafra, and more, as the band tackle songs by Queen, David Bowie, The Fugs, Throbbing Gristle, and others. You can take a listen to Everybody Loves Sausages in full and read commentary on each song by Buzzo via SPIN.
