for Savage Imperial Death March Tour in 2016; Melt Banana Opens!

Napalm Death and the Melvins join forces for the Savage Imperial Death March Tour, a six-week Spring trek that that kicks off on March 26 at The Marquee in Phoenix, Ariz.

“We have been talking about doing a tour like this for a long time so we are thrilled it’s finally happening,” says Napalm Death bass player Shane Embury. “Having been long time fans and friends of the Melvins we are very happy to be embarking on this six-week tour of musical madness with them and Melt Banana. Expect the unexpected!”

Melvins’ singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne added: “Napalm Death sounds like a gorilla on LSD firing a machine gun… and I mean that in a good way. We’re happy to be heading out with the ultimate grindcore pioneers.”

This isn’t the first time the two bands have collaborated. In 2004, Buzz Osborne, Shane Embury and Danny Herrera played together in Venomous Concept, with their debut release (Retroactive Abortion) coming out via Ipecac Recordings.

Hell yes, motherfucker :!: No WNY date, but I'll be @ Cleveland for this. Easier to do the 3 hr trip than 2 hrs to Toronto. Not the first time Buzz has toured with Melt-Banana either. First time I saw Melt-Banana was opening for Fantomas on the Suspended Animation tour @ Cleveland Agora '05.
Not a huge Napalm Death fan, but I'm fine with them headlining. Can leave early if I want to make time.

And but also, Steven McDonald(OFF!/Red Kross) has been recruited for bass duties, so there's that. Saw Crover kill it last year playing in OFF!, so yeah this will be a motherfucker of a tour.

Birmingham is the closest date to me. That's about 5 hours, and I have no intention of ever visiting Birmingham again.

Fantastic line up though. :)

I guess we take the Melvins for granted out here at this point.

The Roseland is not my favorite venue.

I wasn't speaking to you, I was speaking to Lapsed Baps.

Saw both bands (separately) this year, and they are both awesome live. The latest ND album is their best for years, so if you can get to one of these shows I think it'd be a good night out...

CARDIACS forward by Dom Lawson.

Cardiacs. The greatest band that ever walked the Earth. The greatest sound that ever entered my ears. The greatest. Ever. Now and forever.

For those who know about Cardiacs, nothing further needs to be said. For those who don’t? Well, what a glorious world of life-affirming and miraculous music awaits you. Even though chief Cardiac and undisputed Lord Of All Genius And Musical Splendour – the inimitable Tim Smith – has been severely unwell for a number of years, the music he wrote and performed with Cardiacs remains as vital and vibrant as ever. It’s all brilliant. Every last note. It will make you smile, laugh, dance, cry, explode with joy and wonder and magic and glory. And greatness. Always greatness. Great.

Napalm Death are another one of the greatest bands ever to walk the Earth, but even they know that Cardiacs are the greatest of them all. Hence this cranium-decimating cover of one of Tim Smith’s spikiest and snottiest creations, To Go Off And Things, recorded in tribute to the man (and the band) but also as a humble gesture to raise funds for Tim’s ongoing rehabilitation. Not just because the world would be an immeasurably better place if he was able to make some MORE amazing music – but also because Tim has earned our love and respect. Worthy of laudation. The greatest. Ever.

Listen to Napalm Death’s version of To Go Off And Things --> http://napalm-death.bandcamp.com/

Then go and listen to every Cardiacs song ever recorded. And then go and listen to every Napalm Death song ever recorded. Go off and things. Listen. To the greatest band that ever walked the Earth. Ever.

Now and forever. Cardiacs. Always. The greatest.

Squalor is at large in tidy suburbia
Filth and dirt abound in every corner yes
Things left on the floor
Abandoned foodstuffs and things left on the floor
Piles of dirty stuff left to go off and things
To go off and things

Got to tidy up my room tidy my room
Put my things away and make it spick and span
Make things spick and span

Cast aspersions on my lifestyle
Cast aspersions on my lifestyle
Cast aspersions on my lifestyle
Cast aspersions on my lifestyle

Squalor
Is
At large
In
Tidy
Subur-bia

Squalor is at large in tidy suburbia
Filth and dirt abound in every corner yes
To go off and things


released March 31, 2014
Music & Lyrics Tim Smith

Not into the bandcamp/download thing, but I will have this album on CD the week it comes out. Very cool that releases like this & Everybody Loves Sausages are released by Ipecac in CD form. Otherwise you're forced to download/steal the songs or overpay for the AmRep collectors vinyl singles if you're lucky enough to get in line for one.
Got the white vinyl of "Three Men & A Baby" coming in a week or so from SubPop. Think I'll bundle up & order the CD from Amazon too.
