The Melvins and Napalm Death announce Spring 2016 tour dates

Good news for fans of Seattle legends The Melvins and/or UK grindcore vets Napalm Death (whom the Melvins’ King Buzzo says sound like “a gorilla on LSD firing a machine gun” and I don’t know what that means but I think it’s awesome); the two bands are heading out on a six week tour next Spring!

Entitled the Savage Imperial Death March Tour, the jaunt kicks off March 26th in Phoenix and runs through May 7th and 8th in Los Angeles; all dates will feature support from Tokyo noise rockers Melt Banana. Check out the full rundown below.

The Melvins’ last studio album, Hold It In, was released October 14th, 2014 through Ipepac Recordings. They released a reissue of their 2001 album Electroretard on June 2nd. Napalm Death, meanwhile, released “Apex Predator – Easy Meat,” on January 27th, 2015, through Century Media Records.
