Melvins have announced that they will be joining forces with Napalm Death and Melt Banana for the Savage Imperial Death March Tour, a six-week Spring trek that kicks off on March 26 in Phoenix, Ariz. Buzz & Dale are bringing along Steven McDonald of Redd Kross/OFF! fame to handle the bass duties. The trio also have a 10″ recorded titled War Pussy that will be released next year as well.
Buzz had this to say: “Napalm Death sounds like a gorilla on LSD firing a machine gun… and I mean that in a good way. We’re happy to be heading out with the ultimate grindcore pioneers.”
Some may recall that this isn’t the first time members of the Melvins and Napalm Death have collaborated. In 2004, Buzz Osborne, Shane Embury and Danny Herrera played together in Venomous Concept, with their debut release (Retroactive Abortion) which was released by Ipecac Recordings.
“We have been talking about doing a tour like this for a long time so we are thrilled it’s finally happening,” says Napalm Death bass player Shane Embury. “Having been long time fans and friends of the Melvins we are very happy to be embarking on this six-week tour of musical madness with them and Melt Banana. Expect the unexpected!”
