The Melvins Announce Two Unique London Shows For May

Watching the Melvins perform live is always an event to look forward to - but never before has there been news quite this exciting, as today we can confirm details of two totally unique Melvins performances in London this May.

Melvins will perform 'Lysol' and 'Houdini' at London Brixton Electric on Sunday 19th May, followed by a performance of 'Bullhead' and 'Stoner Witch' at the same venue on Monday 20th May.

In other news, earlier this month the Melvins announced a 13-track covers album titled 'Everybody Loves Sausages,' which is set for an April 30th release via Ipecac Recordings.

"This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that influence us musically," explains Buzz Osborne. "We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans."

While the release is billed as a proper Melvins' album (featuring the line-up of Osborne, Dale Crover, Jared Warren and Coady Willis), there are a handful of songs recorded as the Melvins Lite incarnation of the band (Osborne, Crover and Trevor Dunn): 'Female Trouble' (Divine a.k.a. John Waters), 'Timothy Leary Lives' (Pop-O-Pies) and 'Romance By Tales of Terror' (Tales of Terror).

'Everybody Loves Sausages' tracklisting is as follows:

Warhead (Venom; Guest: Scott Kelly of Neurosis)
Best Friend (Queen; Guest: Caleb Benjamin of Tweak Bird)
Black Betty (Original artist unknown)
Set It On Fire (The Scientists; Guest: Mark Arm)
Station To Station (David Bowie; Guest: JG Thirlwell)
Attitude (The Kinks: Guest: Clem Burke of Blondie)

In Every Dream Home A Heartache (Roxy Music; Guests: Jello Biafra and Kevin Rutmanis)
Romance (Tales of Terror)
