In the long lost interview we published today, Mike Patton of Faith No More talked about releasing new music by the Melvins. That was a good decade and a half ago, but King Buzzo et. al. are still at it, having just posted the new single, “Captain Comedown,” off of a split EP they’re releasing with tourmates Le Butcherettes. If you want to get your hands on the Chaos As Usual 10″ — not to mention, see one of the most rip-roarin’ live bands out there — the Melvins will be selling it when they hit Santos Party House on June 29 and 30.
Don’t think for a second that this is some sort of goodbye tour. Earlier this month, frontman Buzz Osborne modestly told the Metal Brainiac podcast, “They can do what they want to, I will outlast them, no one will out-practice me, no one will out-think me, ever.” They don’t call him “King” Buzzo for nothing.
