It is time to celebrate! The self proclaimed "greatest band in the history of music", the mighty MELVINS celebrate their 20th anniversary this March. Yes, beleive it or not it was 20 years ago on March 9th 1984 in Olympia Washington, the very first Melvins show. To celebrate we are releasing a very special coffee table book called "NEITHER HERE, NOR THERE" on March 2nd. This is an amazing retrospective highlighting artwork from their releases, ruminations from the band and their friends and a CD compilation featuring tracks from all their releases only available in this book.
As if this was not enough, the Melvins will be doing a mini celebration tour on the west coast of the US. Dates are posted in the calendar section now. At these shows you will be able to buy a special, limited edition, overpriced, hardcover, version of the book. Join the party!!!!!

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, the mini European tour scheduled for late October by TOMAHAWK has been postponed indefinitely. We are very sorry to report this. The Halloween show in LA is still on. If you purchased tickets for the European tour, full refunds will be given to you at the point of purchase.
The band is VERY disappointed and will try to reschedule these dates in 2004.
A special twisted treat for the people in the UK. The Melvins will be doing a mini tour providing a live soundtrack to 3 films by ultra cool filmaker Cameron Jamie.
"American artist and filmmaker Cameron Jamie’s investigations into violent suburban rituals are revealed in his new films Spook House and Kranky Klaus — urgent, unaffected and alarming journeys into the heart of vernacular culture. Spook House and Kranky Klaus will be screened with Jamie’s earlier film, BB, and accompanied by specially created live soundtrack music from legendary US rock band, The Melvins. "
