Back in 2012, THE MELVINS took a shot a a World Record-setting tour of the United States + Washington D.C. Starting a 51-day trek on Sept. 5, 2012 in Anchorage, Alaska, the tour wrapped up fifty-one days later, Oct. 25, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Now comes the release of Across The USA in 51 Days: The Movie, a full documentary about THE MELVINS' incredible tour... shot entirely on smartphones. The DVD will be released on November 13, and is up for pre-order on Amazon and the official Ipecac Recordings webstore.
THE MELVINS won't be picking up any new listeners with the release of SUGAR DADDY LIVE (out May 31, 2011 via Ipecac), but at this stage in the game that's hardly the point. This new 13-track set recorded live at The Busta-Guts club in Downey, California is a cornicopia of tracks from their more recent albums, peppered with a few old favorites.
