Like a fine wine, Melvins only get better with age: The sludge sweetens, the riffage gets blacker, and King Buzzo’s hair grows more frightening. And while many of the acts it’s influenced (like Nirvana, Tool, and Mastodon) remain more well-known than the band itself, the revitalized, four-man incarnation of Melvins has maintained a consistent output of low-down, scuzzy metal in the 21st century, following 2010’s The Bride Screamed Murder (which debuted in Billboard’s Top 200 at the No. 200 slot, the band’s first album to chart) with a “Melvins-Lite” release, Freak Puke, as well as the upcoming Everybody Loves Sausage, a covers album featuring songs by Queen, David Bowie, and others.
The band is celebrating its 30th anniversary this summer with an extensive North American tour, and will be joined by a special guest on the Milwaukee and Minneapolis dates: Mudhoney. The Milwaukee show is scheduled for Sunday, July 21 at Turner Hall. General admission tickets are $17.50 in advance and $20 the day of the show, and go on sale Friday, April 26 at noon.
