The Melvins Tickets
The Melvins TicketsInitially garnering notoriety as an influence on Seattle's Nirvana, the Melvins have emerged as progenitors of several genres of hard rock and heavy metal, including grunge and sludge. Founding members King Buzzo and Dale Crover have remained the band's perennial members across 30 years of personnel changes. From its early roots as a punk-infused metal band, the Melvins soon employed slower and heavier tempos before eventually incorporating numerous genres into an increasingly eclectic - but always heavy - sound. The band continues to tour relentlessly around the world while releasing critically well-received albums.
Over From UndergroundFormed in 1983 in rural Montesano, Wash., the Melvins initially played hardcore punk. Increasingly bored, it began playing music that drew on hard rock bands such as Black Sabbath and The Stooges. The group slowly gained an underground audience and critical attention with recordings like the band's 1986 debut album titled Gluey Porch Treatments and 1990's Bullhead. A cult band renowned for fierce, jolting live sets, the Melvins signed to Atlantic Records and released the album called Houdini, a fan favorite, in 1993. With the success of Nirvana bringing a wave of signings of other underground bands, the Melvins seemed perched to break through to a wider audience. Houdini entered the Billboard Heatseekers charts at No. 29. Throughout the '90s, the Melvins released increasingly experimental albums while maintaining its reputation as a fearsome live act. Later albums explored electro-acoustic soundscapes and covers of art-rock and punk favorites. Anything was fair game. Since its inception, it has played regularly around the world on more than 100 separate tours. The Melvins now play to two generations of fervent audiences.
