As previously mentioned, Melvins are releasing the live album Sugar Daddy Live on May 31 via Ipecac Recordings. In honor of Memorial Day weekend, download the track "Star Spangled Banner" from the album above (the track makes its premiere in this post). The cover art and full track list is below.

Melvins are currently on a tour that hits the Mohawk in Austin tonight and tomorrow (5/27-28) and Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 6 and 7. They play the albums Lysol, Eggnog, and Houdini in their entirety the first night, and Bullhead and Stoner Witch the second. Both Brooklyn shows are sold out, but we're giving away a pair of tickets to one of the dates (your choice). Contest details below.

Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover did a live Q&A with fans on Tuesday (5/24). The video is over an hour long, watch it on Yowie.com.

Melvins and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion released a split 7" with a cover of Leadbelly's "Black Betty" by each band via AmRep. 800 copies were pressed, and are now sold out, but you can listen to the Melvins cover below.

Big Business, whose members are also in Melvins, play MHOW as part of a tour with Torche and Helms Alee on July 20. Tickets are still available. Updated dates are below.

Ready to rock it 6/6 (Slayer Day!)!

Dale also called in to the Stern show recently. More or less to talk about Kurt and Courtney.

THANKS AUSTIN VEGAN! you're the bestest.

that track is not debuting here because the live record already long ago leaked. Why does everyone have to bury their heads in the sand and pretend like it isn't 2011 and the only people genuinely hearing something new on a blog are self righteous goodie goodies.

We need a new model STAT.

@1:27 - I understand. your dose isn't doing it for you today. you can double-up if you want. if you don't improve over the next week call your doctor.

1:39 calmer than you are, Dude.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2011 1:42 PM

i'm not saying you're wrong. i'm genuinely concerned. you sound like you might be in a state of high and unnecessary agitation.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2011 1:44 PM

calmer than you are.

Posted by Anonymous | May 27, 2011 1:45 PM

ok then. your 'fight or flight' sense seems elevated. that's all i'm saying.

These shows are gonna rule. Melvins do the full album shows well, by changing up the order and and revisiting the material in a new way. Can't wait

i don't know man. their vocal technique sucks and they don't say anything new. man, kids born before 1975 don't know shit.

"man, kids born before 1975 don't know shit."

Before? Well, they probably aren't kids anymore.


(Holy shit, I just rhymed that! OH YEAH!!!)

i think 2:20 was just trying to start a pussy fight. I'm guessing 90% of Melvins fans were born before 1975.

Is that the full song, or is that an edit of it? If it is the full song, there sure are some sloppy edits in there.
