Melvins and Helmet will slip some extra shows in across Australia when they head down under for the Meredith Music Festival in December.
The Melvins have been around now for 30 years. “Has it really only been 30 years?” asked singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne. “Dang! Thanks to everyone who’s been there for us! It’s been an exciting trip and I probably should have listened and learned more. I apologize for anything I’ve ever done wrong and for anything I’m going to do wrong… Ha!”
Melvins and Helmet first toured together over 20 years ago. “The first Melvins/Helmet tour was in 1991 or ’92; the 4 Helmet guys and 3 Melvins guys piled in one van with 2 bands worth of gear and braved massive snowstorms and overnight drives. Needless to say we are looking forward to our Australian tour with our long-time friends minus the overnight drives, blizzards and floor surfing,” said Page Hamilton of Helmet.
