Melvins and Alex’s: Helms Alee and Harsh Mellow join Washington State rockers Melvins for a night or sludgy, punky art-rock mayhem. Five Legged Dog, the Melvins’ 25th (!) studio album, was released last year preceded by Working with God that same year. They’re nothing if not prolific.

On their website, a statement reads: “The Melvins, who set sail for The Electric Roach Tour on June 14, have announced the next wave of dates in what’s proving to be a gargantuan slate of 2022 shows, with The Five Legged Tour offering U.S. fans an additional 43 opportunities to take in one of the band’s live performances.”

Buzz Osborne says: “Nationwide once again! Nothing like touring the USA in the fall. Everyone’s a winner!”

“Not to be confused with the band’s recent acoustic collection of a similar name (Five Legged Dog), the electrified trek kicks off Sept. 5 in San Francisco and wraps up with a special outing at The Halloween Freakout (more details to be announced soon). Tickets for the seven-plus week tour are on-sale this Friday at 10 am local time.”

Melvins and Alex’s: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15 at Alex’s Bar.
