“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!”

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) 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. The film is available now via Ipecac Recordings and Amazon.
