Melvins Lite
Melvins Lite
The Melvins were formed in Montessano, Washington in 1983 by Buzz Osborne, Matt Lukin and Mike Dillard. Lukin and Dillard left the band and drummer Dale Crover stepped in shortly thereafter. Osborne and Crover have been the Melvins' mainstays throughout their 29 year metamorphosis.
To date the band has released 25 original albums, numerous live full-lengths and far too many to count singles and rarities. They've partnered with Jello Biafra, Lustmord and Fantomas for individual releases and toured the world many times over (most recently making headlines for being in both Christchurch and Tokyo for their 2011 earthquakes).
With the release of (A) Senile Animal in 2006, the Melvins became a four-piece, essentially annexing Jared Warren and Coady Willis of Big Business . The Melvins, already known for their shattering mix of punk-meets-metal (and often referred to by an assortment of tags including sludge and grunge), were now louder and more bombastic than ever leading to a resurgence in the band's popularity and a run of three original full-lengths. For 2012 the Melvins have a new EP titled Scion A/V Presents The Bulls and the Bees as well as a new incarnation in their arsenal: Melvins Lite. This additional version of the Melvins pairs Osborne and Crover with Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, MadLove, Fantomas); the Melvins Lite debut release is Freak Puke, which is available June 5 via Ipecac Recordings.

Tweak Bird are back in action, busy readying their new E.P. Undercover Crops in anticipation of their upcoming September/October tour with the Melvins where they will be direct support for 45 of the 51 dates on the Melvins Lite previously announced 51/51/51 trek.

Their 7-song Undercover Crops E.P. was recorded over a long weekend in June with Toshi Kasai –who alongside Dale Crover, produced and recorded Tweak Bird's previous two releases, 2008's Reservations EP and 2010's self-titled LP– is set for release on October 9th via Volcom Entertainment.
