The Melvins at Mohawk, Oct 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)

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.
