Melvins share cover of The Beatles’ “I Want To Tell You,” announce tour

The Melvins
Melvins at MHOW in April (more by Mathieu Bredeau)

The Melvins continue to make the case that sleep is overrated as, directly on the heels of that huge tour with Napalm Death and Melt Banana, they’ve now announced yet another huge North American tour. The new tour kicks off in August (after they tour Europe in June, of course), and while they won’t hit NYC, there are a handful of other dates in the Northeast, including one at the nearby Ballroom at the Outer Space in Hamden, CT. All those dates are listed below.

The Melvins have that new Basses Loaded LP, with 6 different bassists, coming out in June. In fitting form for its title and avowed baseball fan Buzz-O, they’ve announced that it will premiere later this month at mlb.com. That EP will include a cover of The Beatles’ “I Want to Tell You,” which just came out today. You can stream it below (via the Wall Street Journal).

All dates listed, along with a stream of that Beatles cover, below.
