Brothers Jeff and Steve McDonald of power-pop-punks Redd Kross are the first to admit that they are pretty much the opposite of prolific. Their new album Beyond the Door, which was released in August of this year, is their first since Researching the Blues in 2012. Before that, Show World came out in 1997. But the new album is a power-pop beast with a punk edge. The tunes are unrelenting and, on this marathon tour with the Melvins, they’ve been explosive. In fact, Redd Kross and the Melvins share two members so this is an all-in-the-family affair. With the latter, you know what you’re going to get, and they never disappoint.

Redd Kross and the Melvins play with Yoshi Kasai at 8 p.m. on Thursday, November 7 at Alex’s Bar
