In the realm of iconic bands, few can match the longevity and influence of The Melvins. With an incredible 40 years under their belt, they continue to captivate audiences with their unique sound and unforgettable performances. To commemorate this impressive milestone, The Melvins have announced the highly anticipated “Twins of Evil Tour,” a seven-week musical journey that promises to be extraordinary. Joining them on this co-headlining trek is the renowned Japanese trio, Boris. Together, these two legendary groups will be performing classic albums in their entirety, taking their fans on a musical adventure like no other.

A Legendary Setlist: Bullhead and Heavy Rocks

At the heart of the “Twins of Evil Tour” lies an exceptional selection of albums that have left an indelible mark on the music world. The Melvins will be treating their fans to the beloved Bullhead album in its entirety, a masterpiece that has solidified their status as trailblazers in the industry. As the iconic band takes the stage, their performance will be a testament to their enduring creativity and the raw power of their sound. Additionally, fans can expect to hear additional tracks from The Melvins’ extensive discography, ensuring a truly unforgettable experience.

Joining The Melvins on this extraordinary journey is the acclaimed Japanese band Boris. Having drawn inspiration from The Melvins since their formation in the mid-1980s, Boris pays homage to their heroes by taking their name from a song title off The Melvins’ 1991 album, Bullhead. The opportunity to witness these two influential groups unite for a nationwide tour is an astonishing event that has thrilled music lovers around the United States. Boris’ own contribution to the tour comes in the form of their album Heavy Rocks, a landmark record that showcases their own unique style and musical prowess.
