After they conclude their current spring tour opening for Ministry alongside Corrosion of Conformity, the Melvins will start preparing for their first headlining tour since 2019. This summer, the sludge-grunge icons will embark on the "Electric Roach Tour," which will spend a month snaking throughout the U.S. with support from the noisy sludge group Helms Alee. The first date goes down June 15th in Long Beach, CA, and after journeying from coast to coast and back again, the band will wrap up with a gig in Berkeley, CA, on July 20th. 

"It's nice to be able to tour!! We were wondering if it would even be possible again," Buzz Osborne said of the trek. "It's been years since we played these places. The amazing Ministry tour was a warmup for this!"

Tickets go on sale this Friday April 15th at 10 a.m. local time and will be available for purchase here. See the full list of dates below.
