The Melvins, who are wrapping up a sold out tour with Ministry, return to the road this Summer for a headlining trek dubbed “The Electric Roach Tour”, the hard-working band’s first headlining run since 2019.
“It’s nice to be able to tour!! We were wondering if it would even be possible again”, says Osborne of the outing. “It’s been years since we played these places. The amazing Ministry tour was a warmup for this”!
Tickets for the six-week tour are on-sale this Friday at 10 am local time. Helms Alee and Harsh Mellow open on all dates.
