Hey party people!
News coming soon of an Ipecac New Years Eve show in San Francisco at Great American Music Hall. Stay tuned.
Hey folks, starting today you can purchase "Bird's Eye" on itunes. This is a song from the big motion picture that opens in the US on friday called "Body of Lies" that stars a couple of up and coming thespians named Crowe and Dicaprio. Anyway, the song was written and preformed by Marc Streitenfeld (world famous film composer), Serj Tankian (System of a Down) and our own Mike Patton. You can also hear the song after the movie during the credits if you stick around to see who the key grip was.
Lot's of tour dates for our bands on the website. In particular do not miss some rare dates by Mugison in the US.
Damn, it really does come in threes.
Respects must be paid to the great ones:
MAURICIO KAGEL, R.I.P.
The world has lost one of the great contemporary classical composers.

FantômasMelvins Big Band DVD
Hey, all you DVD craving peeps. Here is a cool one for you. We had a very special live performance of the FantômasMelvins Big Band taped a couple years ago in England and it came out GREAT. The band ripped that night and friends of ours fancied up the footage and alas a Big Band DVD is out everywhere now. We hope to do more of these as well. Who knows when or if this group of musicians will play together again, it is a great souvenir of 2 bands joining forces to play each others songs. As a bonus, we even did a top secret commentary track, where limoncello aficionado, Danny DeVito and friends like Dale & Buzz from the Melvins break down the concert to give you behind the scenes insight into the show. (well, that is what they were supposed to do, but they get a little side tracked)
Melvins Dates Rescheduled
The Melvins dates that were cancelled last week in California have been rescheduled for late November. Check calendar section. Sorry for the inconvenience. The band has recovered.
