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. "
We regret to report that the new Fantômas release, "DELIRIUM CORDIA" has been postponed. The extra special fancy packaging is proving quite complicated and will not be able to get it done in time. Stay tuned for the new release date soon.
Seems you New Yorkers really enjoyed the Patton/Rahzel shows, so they decided to fly around and do a few more! Check out the calendar section.
DESERT SESSIONS not to be confused with DESSERT SESSIONS, 9& 10 is out now!
This is one amazing collaboration from the damaged mind of Josh Homme (Queens of the blah blah blah). Guests like PJ Harvey, Dean Ween, Twiggy Ramirez and more add to the tweakiness.
Mondo Generator (Nick Oliveri from.....) US tour dates in the calendar section now!
As some of you may have noticed we have removed the BBS. Unfortunately we had little choice. Too many people turned it into a haven for negativity. That is not what our label is about. We hope someday to try it again. Maybe a few of those idiots will grow up or head over to the MTV chat room. Ipecac is about music and other forms of art. It is not a home for racism, sexism, hatred and violence. You can find that in a lot of the world's political front offices. We appreciate the support from most of you but could care less about the support of the few morons who feel real big when typing at a keyboard. We will keep you up to date through the news section.
best, Ipecac Crüe
Hey all! Just a few hundred tickets left to the fabulous Halloween show!
Notice the limited edition vinyl in our store? We were able to get our hands on a few more Melvins Trilogy sets and some Queens of the Stone Age "Songs For The Deaf" vinyls.
Desert Sessions out in early October. This thing is amazing! A video coming too. Fantômas out in mid October and kid 606 out in early November. What a year!
By the way, we made a decision not to post any samples from Fantômas DELIRIUM CORDIA. Bottomline, this record blows. If you heard it first, you would never buy it and we need all the sales we can get because illegal downloading is KILLING us. Be a sucker...buy it the day it comes out!!!!
Trick or freakin Treat?
Halloween. Oct 31 at the Greek Theatre in LosAngeles
