Buzz Osborne, the legendary grunge progenitor who has helmed the MELVINS for thirty plus years, will release his debut solo full-length album, “This Machine Kills Artists”, on June 3 via Ipecac Recordings.

“I have no interest in sounding like a crappy version of James Taylor or a half-assed version of Woody Guthrie,” said the grunge progenitor of the 17-song offering, continuing, “which is what happens when almost every rock and roller straps on an acoustic guitar. No thanks… ‘This Machine Kills Artists’ is a different kind of animal.”

Rolling Stone gave listeners early access to music from Osborne‘s acoustic release, premiering the song “Dark Brown Teeth”. The magazine described the track as “doomy, ill-angled” and with the “Beefheartian edge his band is renowned for.”

Osborne is currently touring for the first time as a solo artist, wrapping up a three-week trek that included a SXSW interview session with THE STOOGESJames Williamson. Remaining dates are: March 20 at Zanzabar in Louisville, March 21 at Radio Radio in Indianapolis, March 22 at Beat Kitchen in Chicago and March 23 at the High Noon Saloon in Madison. An extensive North American tour kicking off in June will be announced shortly.

Årabrot are one of those bands like the Melvins, who peddle adventurous, forward-thinking music that insistently pokes at the edges of the envelope, all to a relatively small cult following that's woefully incommensurate with their talent… yet another example of why the world is fucked. The Melvins comparison is not an accidental one: the very first track off …

Having fun at a concert is one thing, but when you're endangering the welfare of anyone in attendance, you're ruining it for ever. The Melvins made that pretty clear at a show in Vancouver, BC. Something similar to this happened to Coheed and Cambria earlier on this year as well, but Coheed carried on after …

THE MELVINS cut their August 19 concert in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada short after the band’s lead vocalist/guitarist Buzz Osborne was hit in the chest with a bottle that was thrown by someone in the crowd.

A fan who attended the gig told Alternative Nation: “Towards the end of the show, someone threw a bottle that reportedly hit Buzzo in the chest. The music stopped, he said ‘Fuck you, guys’ and walked off. Dale [Crover, drums] came up and demanded to know who had thrown it. When no one owned up, he said ‘See ya’ and the roadies proceeded to take down gear. One roadie collected all the setlists and put them in his pocket. However, the perpetrator had been apprehended by some of the crowd members and handed over to security. He was brought outside and identified by Buzzo himself who proceeded to get into a vehicle and leave, ignoring everyone but the authorities. The bottle thrower was arrested.”

Fan-filmed video footage of the incident can be seen below. (Note: The bottle can be seen hitting Buzz around the 35-second mark.)

THE MELVINS will release “Tres Cabrones”, a 12-song release that finds Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover reuniting with original drummer Mike Dillard, on November 5 via Ipecac Recordings.

Tres Cabrones will be released on November 5 via Ipecac Recordings. Get psyched, because things are about to get trippy.  Currrent Melvins drummer …

The Melvins teamed up with the amazing Scion A/V to release a new song available for free download, which is al the weirdness you'd expect from the band at this point and then some. Think a stranger version of Clutch for this one. "Dr. Mule" is seriously just like a new Clutch song with a …
