King Buzzo w/ Melvins at Housecore Horror Film Fest, 2013 (more by Trent Maxwell)

Back in February, we mentioned that Buzz "King Buzzo" Osborne of (the) Melvins had made his latest predictably unpredictable career move -- he had recorded a solo acoustic 10" album titled This Machine Kills Artists, which is slotted for a June 3 release via Ipecac, and went on an accompanying March solo tour. Though said tour involved some SXSW appearances, it didn't hit NYC.

The first round must've gone well, because Buzzo's booked a much longer run of acoustic dates in June and July (plus an appearance at the aforementioned 2014 edition of Scion Rock Fest). This round does include NYC -- Buzzo is hitting Santos Party House on July 13 and The Wick in Brooklyn on July 14. Tix for the Santos show go on sale this Friday (4/4) at 10am; tix for the Wick show are on sale now.

Buzzo's also released a single from that acoustic recording titled "Dark Brown Teeth" a while back. Though "acoustic Buzzo" doesn't necessarily inspire confidence as an idea off the bat, the man's rhythm guitar work has always been impeccable, and his versatile singing voice has long been a key component of his main band's sound. This track produces flattering evidence of both.

Stream it, and check out the full run of Buzzo's solo dates, below...

I just wanted an excuse to think about True Detective more as I wait for the 7th episode, so here's a post about the music which includes the show's title sequence theme song "Far From Any Road" by The Handsome Family, and info on the well curated songs in each episode.

Check out what they played in episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4, episode 5, and episode 6. Names include a lot of country and folk classics mixed with newer indie rock stars, metal, psych rock and more. The Black Angels were in episode one and their tourmate Roky Erickson appeared via his band The 13th Floor Elevators in episode 2. Father John Misty, Lucinda Williams, Vashti Bunyan, Steve Earle, Melvins, Nick Cave's Grinderman, Sleep (!), Primus, Wu-Tang Clan, Omar Rodríguez-López's Bosnian Rainbows, and the Kinks all made the cut so far too. Who is the Yellow King though?

UPDATE: Check out the music from episode 7.

Listen to the Handsome Family intro song below...

TONITE! (...sort of, not really)
VH

Real talk: the weather fucking sucked this week, and it shows few signs of improving over the weekend. On top of that, it's Valentine's Day today. Not brutal! (Or doubly brutal, depending on your inclinations.) But you guys are troopers, right? And there's a good amount of fun stuff going on this weekend:

Tonight (2/14): industrial pioneers Skinny Puppy are playing at Webster Hall along with Army of the Universe & Cult of Youth, though the show is sold out. Saint Vitus is hosting a more romantic event (by some definitions, anyway) -- the DLR-era Van Halen tribute band Bottom's Up.

Tomorrow (2/15): gnarly noise rock locals Fashion Week are playing an ABC No Rio matinee along with out-of-towners Manners, Dying, & Capacities. Rozamov's tour is hitting Acheron, with help from Godmaker, Eggnogg, & Crushed. Meanwhile, long-running death/thrashers Deceased will put in a one-off appearance at Saint Vitus alongside Fantom Warrior, Penetration, Sacrificial Blood, Exhumation, & Iron Force. Keep an eye on our nifty NYC metal show calendar for the latest. It rules.

In other news:

The great Polish death metal band Decapitated have entered the studio to record their sixth album.

Some grainy, 30-second streaming samples of the new Triptykon album are available on Amazon, if you're into that kind of thing.

Knelt Rote have canceled their appearance at Martyrdoom 2014, which is a bummer. On the bright side, Lord Mantis and Evoken have joined the bill.

Shirley Temple's passing reminded a lot of people that her daughter Lori Black was briefly a member of (the) Melvins, though Black's stint in also-ran thrashers Clown Alley continues to go uncelebrated.

Speaking of Melvins, frontman Buzz Osborne has debuted the first song from his aforementioned solo acoustic 10" via Rolling Stone. You can stream it below.

The Dillinger Escape Plan have announced another spring tour. This one's with Tera Melos & Vattnet Viskar (the latter of whom are playing NYC soon), and while it doesn't stop in NYC, you can catch it if you schlep out to Hartford, CT on May 10. All tour dates are listed below.

Over in the IO corner:

We checked out great new tunes by New Light Choir, Behemoth, The Wounded Kings, and Xothist. We continued our career-spanning retrospective on Babylon Whores. We gave you the deets on all of this week's $$$-worthy new metal. And we spoke to NYC metal scene fixture Curran Reynolds (Wetnurse, Body Stuff, Today is the Day, & the Precious Metal Series) on our East Village Radio show. Tune in every Tuesday night at 10pm on EVR.com for ticket giveaways, interviews, and the best new riffage around.

King Buzzo w/ Melvins at Housecore Horror Fest, 2013 (more by Trent Maxwell)
Melvins

Melvins are about as predictably unpredictable as any heavy band out there. Their recent stunts include trying to set a US tour record by playing all 50 states in 51 days and reverting to their original early-'80s lineup for their most recent album.

For his next trick, vocalist/guitarist Buzz Osborne will be playing a run of solo acoustic shows in February and March, starting with a Scion Rock Show appearance in LA on 2/25. This wouldn't be such a weird move for most rock frontmen, but Buzzo is not known for his friendliness to such sensitive endeavors. As he put it himself:

"I'm looking forward to taking this show on the road! Solo acoustic is something I'd never thought I'd be doing. Maybe that's why this will work!"
Osborne will also release a "commemorative 10-inch" (odd word choice, but okay) of the tour via Amphetamine Reptile on a date yet to be announced.

No NYC stop at the moment, sadly, but if you're going to be in Austin for SXSW you can catch Osborne there. All dates are listed below...

So this is intriguing: over the weekend, the Brooklyn venue Acheron announced a show headlined by "the Big Easy Sludge All Stars" on November 16. The show also features locals Trenchgrinder and Syphilitic Lust.

The show's flyer, below, describes the heretofore-unknown Big Easy Sludge All Stars as "featuring members of Down, Mystick Krewe of Clearlight, Melvins and Outlaw." (UPDATE: There's no Melvins member involved. It was a mistake on the initial flyer and the new flyer can now be seen below.) You may also recall that Eyehategod -- which features Jimmy Bower of Down and the Mystick Krewe of Clearlight, and who recently played the Housecore Horror fest with Dale Crover of Melvins on drums -- are about to hit the Northeast for a few dates. The band is playing Saint Vitus on 11/14 (tickets), but the show on the November 16 is listed as "TBA at TBA". Oh, and the Acheron show has a $25-per-ticket presale already going. You do the math.

Eyehategod announced their permanent replacement drummer on Friday. Check out the full set of upcoming Eyehategod dates, and the show flyer, below.

In related news, the new Melvins album "Tres Carbones" is streaming at Pitchfork Advance.

New Orleans sludge masters Eyehategod announced yesterday that Aaron Hill of New Orleans bands Missing Monuments and Mountain of Wizard will be the drummer for Eyehategod going forward, including a date at Saint Vitus on November 14 with Mutilation Rites and The Communion (tickets). The question of a permanent drummer has been in the air since the death of original Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze in August. Dale Crover of Melvins filled in this past weekend during Eyehategod's Joey Lacaze tribute set at the Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin. Check out Eyehategod's scheduled tour dates below, and look for additional dates in the coming weeks.

The four-day Housecore Fest (10/24 - 10/27) was hosted by Phil Anselmo and featured a stacked line-up, including Melvins, Gwar, Pallbearer, Goblin (performing their score to Suspira in full), Down and many more. You can check out pics from day 2 and days 3 & 4 over on BV Austin. IO sent guest writer David Hall down to the fest, and you can check out his two part review and additional photos on Invisible Oranges.

My Bloody Valentine wrap up the North American leg of their 2013 tour next month, with the last two shows here in NYC at Hammerstein Ballroom on November 11 & 12. Tickets are still available. (PS look for an interview with MBV's Kevin Shields on this site soon.) While it hasn't been listed on Hammerstein's site, opening the 11/11 show -- and a few others on these dates -- are Dumb Numbers. The band is more or less Australian musician Adam Harding who has previously played on Lou Barlow's last two solo albums. His own stuff -- and voice -- is not so far from Lou's style, but mostly played in a super-sludgy style that occasionally lumbers into doom territory.

Dumb Numbers put out their debut album earlier this year via Joyful Noise and helping Harding out on the album is an impressive cast, including Barlow, plus Dinosaur Jr. drummer Murph, David Yow (Jesus Lizard), Dale Crover (Melvins), Bobb Bruno (Best Coast), and more. Oh, and David Lynch shot the album cover (Yow did the design/layout). You can stream stream the whole album below, along with the Yow-directed video for "Redrum."

As to who exactly is playing in Dumb Numbers on these dates is not 100% clear. Murph is definitely on drums. And the band is "not sure about" whether they're opening on the second MBV Hammerstein date (11/12), so stay tuned. Their confirmed tour dates are listed, along with the album stream and video, below....

Russian Circles will release their fifth studio album, Memorial via Sargent House on October 29, and they've already released two songs from the album, including one with guest vocals from Chelsea Wolfe (with whom Russian Circles are currently touring Europe). Today Russian Circles released another song from Memorial, the massive and gorgeous "1777." Stream that below.

Meanwhile, Melvins recently streamed a new track, "City Dump," from their forthcoming album, Tres Cabrones. That album, Melvins' 19th, is out on November 5 and features original drummer Mike Dillard. Melvins recently celebrated their 30th anniversary with a massive tour which hit NYC in August. Did you go?

Dale Crover with (the) Melvins (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Dale Crover

NOLA sludge kings Eyehategod have been in limbo since the untimely passing of drummer Joey LaCaze last month. LaCaze was a unique talent, and the band wisely chose not to rush into announcing a replacement for him. However wise, this decision had a price. LaCaze's empty throne forced the band to cancel their Invisible Oranges-sponsored boat show earlier in September.

Eyehategod's 25th-anniversary appearance at Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film Fest has hung in the balance since. Happily, the festival announced today that the band has found a suitable fill-in for their 10/26 appearance: Dale Crover of (the) Melvins, who will also join the bill as a replacement for Crowbar.

Presumably, Crover won't replace LaCaze in the long term; his main band tours a lot, and he's one of its two core members. But as far as matches for EHG go, he's as good as they're likely to get -- dude is one of the hardest hitters in the game, and he's got the chops to manage EHG's sneaky time-stretch tempo component.

The Housecore fest -- which also features Goblin performing their Suspiria score -- will take place from 10/24 through 10/27 in Austin. Tickets are still available.

Dan Auerbach, no longer the owner of Dylan's hair (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Dan Auerbach

Black Keys singer/record producer Dan Auerbach had been going through a divorce with Stephanie Gonis, and TMZ reports that his wife has obtained a pretty interesting piece of their assets...

Here comes the story of Bob Dylan's hair ... which apparently belongs to the ex-wife of Black Keys singer Dan Auerbach. Seriously (according to court docs obtained by TMZ).

We've learned ... Auerbach's extremely bitter divorce with Stephanie Gonis was finalized this week in Tennessee ... after the warring couple came to terms on splitting up their assets.

First, the money: She gets more than $5 million. Plus, she gets the couple's 2012 Toyota Highlander and one of the family homes.

But who cares, because the real story here is BOB DYLAN'S HAIR.

According to the divorce docs, the couple owns an asset described as "Bob Dylan Hair."

It's unclear how the hair was obtained ... when it was obtained ... if the hair contains any product ... etc. -- but the point is, Dan agreed to part ways with it in the divorce.

Jack White's divorce has also taken a bad turn (though nothing to do with celebrity body parts), and in emails sent to ex-wife Karen Elson, he revealed some hard feelings about the other singer/guitarist-of-blues-rock-duo-whose-name-has-a-color-in-it (namely, their kids being enrolled in the same Nashville school):
My concern with Auerbach is because I don't want the kids involved in any of that crap ... That's a possible twelve f***ing years I'm going to have to be sitting in kids chairs next to that a**hole with other people trying to lump us in together.
Meanwhile, Jack's label, Third Man Records, just released a live King Tuff album, and there's a live Melvins LP due out September 10. You can stream "Just Strut" from the King Tuff LP, below.

To take this all full circle, a recording recently surfaced of Jack White and Bob Dylan performing The White Stripes' "Ball and Biscuit" back in 2004. Listen below...

Melvins at House of Vans (more by Maclyn Bean)
Melvins

You may remember that Melvins aren't just a band for the ice cream-obsessed. No, fans will take in their sluggy riffs when its boiling hot with no sign of frozen relief -- like at House of Vans in July -- and are eagerly awaiting a new record due this fall. Shocker, I know.

Evidence of the new record can be found in some new video, which captures the band performing "Antioxdote" at Scion Rock Fest this year and being interviewed by hip hop legend Prince Paul. Check out both videos below.

Melvins

You may have heard about the last minute Melvins show at Humboldt Park in Chicago? Turns out the appearance was part of an AV Undercover piece that had the trio perform "Graveyard" by Butthole Surfers in front of a parked ice cream truck. Video is in this post. Make sure and watch the video, which shows a swarm of kids clamoring for free ice cream and completely indifferent to the band around them. The song breaks down into cacophony, which is actually the perfect soundtrack to the sugar-fueled feeding frenzy around them. Knowing the Melvins and their sense of humor, I am sure this is something they are very happy about.

Melvins are readying their new LP, Tres Cabrones, with original drummer Mike Dillard, and recently passed through NYC at House of Vans.

Melvins' AV Undercover video is below...

Just like in 2009, Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover of The Melvins will team with drummer Mike Dillard for Tres Cabrones, a new LP! Due on Ipecac in November. Dale will move to bass for the set of new tracks, with Dillard occupying the kit:

"Tres Cabrones is as close as we're willing to get to the Melvins 1983 line-up," explained Osborne. "The best part is it's all new songs. I specifically wrote tunes that would be good for these guys to play and it worked out great. We had no interest in rehashing tunes we wrote 30 years ago and chose instead to simply create NEW songs. It worked out perfectly."
The Melvins are currently celebrating their 30th anniversary on the road, though without bassist Jared Warren (on paternity leave) and with Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers) filling in. If you missed them, check out pictures from their recent show at House of Vans with Baroness and Honky (which features Pinkus and Crover).

Melvins / Baroness
Melvins
Baroness

The free House of Vans shows continued this week (7/31) with a triple attack of sludge metal from The Melvins, Baroness, and Melvins/Butthole Surfers-related band Honky. Pictures of the former two are in this post, and another set of the show (including shots of Honky) is at Invisible Oranges.

For Baroness, this was their first NYC show since heading back out on the road following last year's tragic bus crash. (And it was actually the same venue they would have played last summer.) John Baizley and guitarist Peter Adams are the only members who remained in the band after the accident, and Baizley is actually the only original member left. Despite this, and a noticeably calmer Baizley than the earlier days (which, all things considered, you'd forgive him for), the band was tight and the show was a great time. The show was mainly split between Yellow & Green and Blue Record, including live favorites like "Take My Bones Away," "March to the Sea," "The Sweetest Curse," and "Swollen and Halo." Only complaint was that I wish the set was longer, which it probably will be when Baroness headline Irving Plaza on 8/14 with Royal Thunder (tickets).

Congrats go out to Jared Warren of Big Business, who sat out this Melvins tour in favor of paternity leave. In his stead was bassist Jeff Pinkus of Honky, who ably backed the band, though Jared's sweet harmonizing croon was missed. The band's appearance featured tracks old and new, and even an appearance from Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers.

The next House of Vans show happens on August 15 with Kid Dynamite, Joyce Manor, Red Hare, and Swearin'. RSVP for that show is still open.

Baroness finally returned to the road this year, and as discussed, this summer's tour includes not one, but two NYC shows. The first of those is a free House of Vans show on July 31, which is being headlined by Melvins, and also features openers Honky. RSVP is required, and opens today (7/15) at 9 AM. Like all House of Vans shows, entry is still first come, first served. Show flyer below.

Baroness' other NYC show this summer is a not-free one at Irving Plaza on August 14 with Royal Thunder, which tickets are still available for.

Kid Dynamite

As discussed, House of Vans (25 Franklin St in Brooklyn) is returning for another free summer concert series this year, and like we said we would, we're now excited to announce the very awesome lineups for this year's series.

7/11 - Toro y Moi, Shlohmo & Jonwayne
7/18 - !!!, Jacques Renault Plus Special Guests Announced in Mid June

8/15 - Kid Dynamite, Joyce Manor, Red Hare, Swearin'
8/29 - Les Savy Fav, Delorean plus Special Guest

We knew that Baroness would be playing House of Vans with Melvins on July 31, but House of Vans have released dates for the rest of their free summer concert season. The other shows will happen June 27, July 11, July 18, August 15, and August 29. Any guesses on who will play this year? BrooklynVegan will have the exclusive entire lineup announcement next week. We saw it and are excited, but can't say anything yet. .Stay tuned!

Baroness at Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Baroness

When sludge-metal-turned-alt-rock greats Baroness first announced that they'd be doing a full North American tour this year (their first since their tragic bus crash) we guessed that a NYC show at House of Vans would get added. Once Baroness finally did announce a NYC show, it turned out to actually be happening at Irving Plaza (8/14) with Royal Thunder (tickets).

However, now the band did just announce that they will in fact be playing House of Vans on July 31. And to make it better, it's with The Melvins (which explains their TBA NYC show that day). To make it even better, it's totally free. Stay tuned for more information (an RSVP link is probably forthcoming).

Updated Baroness dates are listed, along with a video, below...

Down / Sleep / Melvins @ MDF 2013
Down
Sleep
Melvins

Maryland Deathfest has closed another chapter after this past weekend, hosting sets from bands like Carcass, Sleep, Bolt Thrower, Midnight, Infest, Melvins and more across four days and as many stages. The outside stage came to an abrupt halt with a late cancellation of Carpathian Forest due to visa issues, followed by the power going off in the middle of Venom's performance of "Warhead":

In case you were wondering what happened during Venom's set last night, an unexpected strict curfew change from 12 am to 11 PM occurred over the weekend. At the time the schedule was made, we were told it would not be a problem to finish at midnight on Sunday, so this added to our list of headaches dealt with over the weekend. We realize it is fucked up and disrespectful to have to cut a set short, but we would've been facing a whole raft of shit and a very hefty fine had we not stopped when we did.
Despite those issues, the festival featured some jawdropping performances, and you can see photo sets from the festival's day one, day two, day three and day four. You can also see additional photos from Maryland Deathfest at the InvisibleOranges Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In addition, we caught some sets from bands touring to MDF in the recent days too. Check out photos of Terveet Kadet / Iron Lung / Massgrav at Saint Vitus, Hellshock / Kromosom at Acheron, and Converge at Saint Vitus.

There are still quite a few bands on the road as part of MDF. You can catch Deiphago at Saint Vitus tonight (5/28, tickets), Weedeater at Saint Vitus on Wednesday (5/29, tickets) and Cobalt at Saint Vitus on 5/31 (tickets).

Those lucious curly white locks blowing in the wind can only mean one thing: the Melvins are back on the road to continue 30 years of maniacal touring. Help the duo celebrate this important anniversary on each coast this summer, part of a North American tour scheduled in July and August. Though not quite as intense as their earlier, borderline-mental Guinness-World-Record run last year, the extensive trek will kick off in Phoenix and tag the continent until late August including a stop in Brooklyn on July 31, venue TBA (House of Vans? St. Vitus?). They'll also be at this year's Scion Rock Fest and Maryland Deathfest -- all tour dates are listed below.

As discussed, Melvins are readying their covers LP Everybody Loves Sausages. Stream that in full, complete with Buzzo's commentary at Spin.

Melvins

Singing with the Melvins. It's my dream, and apparently the wish of a young School of Rock student in Los Angeles who sang while Dale Crover played drums, covering the band's "Hooch" from Houdini. Check out the cover below, a must see for fans of Melvins.

The band recently played a New Year's Eve show with Redd Kross in their native Los Angeles where they had copies of show-only 12"s for sale, which included a cover of "Female Trouble" by Divine from the 1974 John Waters classic of the same name. Check that, and the School of Rock video, below.

Meanwhile, Melvins are always conjuring up new vinyl and the latest addition to that pile comes in the form of a 13-part Amphetamine Reptile split 12" series. This baker's dozen will feature appearances from names like Negative Approach, Off!, Butthole Surfers, and more, in addition to the recently surfaced Mudhoney and Fucked Up splits. Look for them "hopefully next week."
