The MELVINS, continuing their 40th anniversary celebrations, have announced the "Twins of Evil Tour", a seven-week trek that sees the Los Angeles-by-way-of-Washington band joined by Japanese trio BORIS, with both groups performing classic albums in their entirety: Bullhead (MELVINS) and Heavy Rocks (BORIS).

"40 years as the MELVINS!!! What better way to celebrate that unlikely milestone than by setting off on the 'Twins of Evil Tour' with our friends, BORIS," Buzz Osborne shares of a set that will see the iconic band perform the beloved Bullhead album in its entirety, as well as additional tracks across their discography. "This will be a stone groove!"

BORIS' Takeshi adds: "Could anyone have predicted such an astonishing event, that BORIS and the MELVINS would tour the entire USA together? Since the mid-1980s, the MELVINS have had an enormous influence on artists of all genres not only limited to heavy music, and have brought forth a surge of faithful followers over the years. Needless to say, BORIS is just one of these many bands influenced by the mighty MELVINS, and we took our name from a song title off of the 1991 album, Bullhead."

The MELVINS have already had an eventful 40th anniversary year, recently wrapping up a stint on the Ipecac Geek Show tour with labelmates MR. BUNGLE and SPOTLIGHTS, before venturing overseas for the band's first European outing since 2018. The group were also recently featured on a series of Revolver covers, marking their 1983 inception with a trio of portraits shot by TOOL's Adam Jones. Ipecac Recordings has spent the year highlighting previously released MELVINS' albums with quick-to-sell-out vinyl reissues. Currently available (https://ipecac.lnk.to/Melvins2023) are Tres Cabrones, Houdini Live 2005, and The Bulls & The Bees + Electroretard.
