Melvins and Boris have just announced the "Twins of Evil" tour, a 43-date trek through the United States which will find each band playing one of their classic albums in full.

For Melvins, they'll be celebrating their 1991 underground classic Bullhead, while Boris will perform all if 2002's Heavy Rocks, making it a can't-miss night for fans of sludgy, experimental heavy music. And it's just plain amusing that Boris, who named themselves after one of the standout cuts on Bullhead, are appearing on this commemorative run.

“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,” enthuses Melvins frontman/guitarist Buzz Osborne, “This will be a stone groove!”

Boris’ Takeshi (vocals, bass, guitar) adds, “Could anyone have predicted such an astonishing event, that Boris and the Melvins would tour the entire USA together? Since the mid-'80s, 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 Twins of Evil Tour kicks off in Los Angeles on Aug. 24 and will conclude in another California city, San Diego, on Oct. 14. Opening each night will be Mr. Phylzzz.
