Celebrating their 30-year anniversary, Melvins have released a veritable ʻshitloadʼ (their words) of albums over the past 30 years, the most recent being a covers collection called Everybody Loves Sausages. Meanwhile, Helmet, fronted by Page Hamilton, have been playing their own brand of heavy music around since 1989, putting their offbeat time signatures and dense chords to tape and releasing 7 studio albums and touring the world constantly.
“The first Melvins/Helmet tour was in 1991 or '92; the 4 Helmet guys and 3 Melvins guys piled in one van with 2 bands worth of gear and braved massive snowstorms and overnight drives. Needless to say we are looking forward to our Australian tour with our long-time friends minus the overnight drives, blizzards and floor surfing.” – Page Hamilton
This December, prepare to have your ear-holes pummeled as two legendary bands land on our stage.
