For some reason, the sludge-tastic heavy rock outfit The Melvins skipped their adopted hometown Los Angeles on their tour supporting the new album “The Bride Screamed Murder.” But on September 15th, The Melvins will right this wrong by kicking off their West Coast Tour at The Troubadour.

After 26 years of rocking, The Melvins finally broke the Billboard Top 200 chart, with their newest album. Not like they care. They're the Melvins, an indomitable force of nature housing more rock power in the crook of their knee pit than most new heavy-edged bands combined.

See them for yourself, after the jump we have full tour details and some great Melvins covers.
