Melvins and Boris announce co-headlining U.S. tour

Author Flavia Andrade - 5.6.2023

Melvins and Boris have recently announced a co-headlining U.S. tour, called “Twins Of Evil Tour”, with dates for this summer and fall. Melvins are currently celebrating their 40th anniversary, and to mark that, the band will perform their third studio album, “Bullhead“ (1991), in its entirety, besides other fan favorites.

Boris will be performing their album “Heavy Rocks” (2022) in its entirety every night. 

Melvins vocalist/guitarist Buzz Osborne says:

40 years as the Melvins!!! What better way to celebrate that unlikely milestone than by setting off on the ‘Twins of Evil Tour’ with our friends, Boris. This will be a stone groove!

Boris vocalist/bassist Takeshi added:

Could anyone have predicted such an astonishing event, that Boris and the Melvins would tour the entire USA together? Since the mid-1980s, the Melvins have had an enormous influence on artists of all genres not only limited to heavy music, and have brought forth a surge of faithful followers over the years. Needless to say, Boris is just one of these many bands influenced by the mighty Melvins, and we took our name from a song title off of the 1991 album, Bullhead.

The tour will count with Mr. Phylzzz as support, and tickets will be on sale this Friday, June 09, at 10:00 AM local time.
