Melvins’ King Buzzo Announces ‘Gift of Sacrifice’ Album and Tour
He will support the record with an eight-week tour beginning on May 13 in Palm Springs, Calif., and concluding on July 6 in Los Angeles.
You can see the complete Gift of Sacrifice track listing and Buzzo's full tour itinerary below.
The album's first single, "Science in Modern America" is available now. You can listen to it below.
Unlike 2014's strictly solo This Machine Kills Artists, Buzzo is joined on the new album by Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn. The two previously performed together in Fantomas and as two-thirds of the Melvins "lite" lineup on 2012's Freak Puke.
Dunn will also accompany Buzzo on the upcoming tour.
“Gift of Sacrifice was a stone groove to record and it will be a fucking blast to finally hit the road with my buddy, Trevor Dunn,” King Buzzo said in a press release announcing the LP and tour. “Once we take the stage, I guarantee we’ll kick the crap out of this album.”
