Melvins Announce 12-week North American Tour

The Melvins, who release the double album A Walk With Love & Death on July 7th via Ipecac Recordings, announce their most extensive North American tour to date, with dates stretching from July 5th to October 3rd.

Tickets for the tour, which stretches from Florida to British Columbia, from Southern California to New England, are on-sale this Friday at 10 AM, local time.

With A Walk With Love & Death, the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcase two distinct sides of 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 & Death.

A release date for the short has not been announced yet but a trailer has been made available:

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