More on the Melvins evening

Just found this small article commenting on the concert I witnessed at the Commodore. It talks about the 2-band-live set, the drumkits and their upcoming cd. Seems that what I saw was the first leg of the tour.

Seattle alt-metal veterans The Melvins (tickets | music) have plotted the first leg of a fall tour behind their second release of 2006, "The Senile Album," due in stores Oct. 10.
The album will mark The Melvins' first recorded effort with their recently revamped lineup, which pairs longtime Melvins stalwarts Buzz Osborne (guitar, vocals) and Dale Crover (drums) with Jared Warren (bass, vocals) and Coady Willis (drums) of fellow Seattle indie rockers Big Business, effectively combining the two bands into a single entity.

"Now we're going to be four piece," Crover said in a recent interview with "Two drums--just like the Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead! We've known [the Big Business] guys for a long time. It's not like they're going to quit Big Business or anything like that. When we tour, we're hoping that they'll open."

The Melvins have since confirmed that Big Business will, in fact, open on the band's upcoming tour, which kicks off Sept. 6 in Sacramento, CA. The group will tackle 18 cities on the tour's first leg, which is so far confined entirely to September.

"The Senile Album" was recorded earlier this year in Los Angeles. In May, The Melvins released "Houdini Live 2005: A Live History of Gluttony and Lust," a track-by-track live rendition from 2005 of the band's acclaimed 1993 album, "Houdini."
