Napalm Death, Melvins to tour this spring

Posted by on December 1, 2015


It’s pretty amazing that Napalm Death and Melvins haven’t toured together before. Both have been around for over 30 years, are influential as hell in their respective genres, and have defied trends to keep making music on their own terms. The two bands have collaborated together, with Buzz Osborne, Shane Embury and Danny Herrera playing in Venemous Concept. That’s all changing next year, though, as the two bands will team up for six weeks on the “Savage Imperial Death March” tour. Japan’s Melt Banana will open. Tickets go on sale on this Friday, December 4th. Here’s what the two headliners had to say about it:

“We have been talking about doing a tour like this for a long time so we are thrilled it’s finally happening,” states 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!”

Melvins’ singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne added: “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.”
