NAPALM DEATH, Melvins and MELT BANANA

Show Starts

7PM

Ages

18+

Napalm Death and the Melvins join forces for the Savage Imperial Death March Tour, a six-week Spring trek that that kicks off on March 26 at The Marquee in Phoenix, Ariz. “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!”

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.” This isn’t the first time the two bands have collaborated. In 2004, Buzz Osborne, Shane Embury and Danny Herrera played together in Venomous Concept, with their debut release (Retroactive Abortion) coming out via Ipecac Recordings. The Melvins released Across The USA in 51 Days: The Movie! on Friday. The DVD release, filmed by the band and crew during their 2012 attempt to break the record for the fastest tour of the United States (plus DC), dedicates one minute to each state (and district) along the ambitious outing.
