When Henry calls, you better answer the phone! Mike Patton will be lending his talents to a fundraiser for the West Memphis Three. Henry Rollins and Heidi May have collected various musicians to cover Black Flag songs for a benefit CD to be released on Sanctuary Records in October. Patton did the Flag classic "Six Pack". Other artists include Iggy Pop, Ween, Hank Williams III, Ice T, Rancid, Rollins and more! Not only is it a good record but a GREAT cause!

*After much waiting, we can finally announce the first couple weeks of the Toolahawk tour. That's right, Tool has been kind enough to offer the opening slot for half of their US summer tour to Tomahawk. For confirmed shows so far check the calendar section. We are planning on announcing more shows up to August 10th soon. Also looking into adding a club show or 2. Stay tuned!
*The bad news is that Tomahawk will NOT be going back to Europe this year. Very sorry. The band will be working on the new album this Fall and return to Australia for a few shows in October followedby Halloween in NYC of course!
*Halloween in NYC Ipecac showcase ticket announcement soon.
*Other touring news..... Do not miss the Melvins current tour!!!!!! Opening slots by our own eX-Girls and Isis on some shows. Check the calendar!
*Did you buy your HEMOPHILIAC?
*Prepare for Jim Thirwell's(Foetus) latest, Steroid Maximus - ECTOPIA. Out at the end of the month. This is a VERY cool CD!
*The return of Skeleton Key is almost here! June 25th is the release date for OBTAINIUM.
* More items coming soon to the store. Sorry, due to legal reasons no Melvins stuff. Rumors of a Bungle store are gathering steam.
*Some of you have noticed more message board censoring than usual. Based on the e-mails we receive it became clear that most of you were getting sick of a lot of the childish
offensive garbage on the boards. We will try to watch it closer. For the 2 or 3 of you whining about your rights and censorship, blah blah blah....... LEAVE! We don't need you or want you around. There are plenty of places on the Internet that you can go to start fights and show off your creative use of the english language. Hatred, racism, sexism and homophobia don't impress us.
