Our old buddies, (Grammy winners)TOOL, have done it again. Check the calendar section for TOOL/Melvins dates!!! This time it's Australia/New Zealand!!!! This will coincide with the official release of the Melvins new sudio CD HOSTILE AMBIENT TAKEOVER, priced to sell in Australia too!!! Thanks again TOOL!!!!!!! More dates to come.
Sneak preview time!!!! 2 tracks from the upcoming live Fantômasmelvins Big Band, MILLENNIUM MONSTERWORKS (IPC 19) CD are up. The Melvins song "Hooch" and the Fantômas hit "She's a Puker" are available to get a taste of this monumental performance. The full CD is due out in early April celebrating Ipecac's 3rd birthday!!!! Enjoy!!!
The news leaked out, contracts are not signed yet, the band has not gotten their million dollar check yet, but it is safe to say that the mighty ISIS has been added to the Ipecac roster. Look for a full length release in September. To get a taste of these Massachusetts based HEAVY hitters check out their last full length CLESTIAL or more recent Ep SGNL>05. We welcome ISIS, who have been described as "A garbage disposal rhythmically chewing through your skull." Yeah, we are down with that!!!!

Wooo Hooo!!!!! We can finally confirm MOST of the Tomahawk European tour. We are still missing the 3 Italian dates and it looks like 2 in Spain. Hope to have those confirmed early next week. Our sincere apolgies to our German cousins. The promoter in Germany screwed us up and as a result we have no German dates until this summer. Very sorry.
