Melvins announce two unique shows in London performing, Lysol & Houdini + Bullhead & Stoner Witch across two nights

11 Mar

Watching the Melvins perform live is always an event to look forward to – but never before has there been news quite this exciting, as we are beside ourselves with enthusiasm to announce two totally unique Melvins performances in London this May.

Ladies and gentlemen we present an evening with Melvins performing live Lysol & Houdini at London Brixton Electric on Sunday 19 May and playing Bullhead & Stoner Witch at the same venue on Monday 20 May. Two absolutely unmissable shows.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £22.50 (subject to booking fee) and are available from or


Melvins are a sect diabolick, a gateway, a divine portal between innumerable worlds, an outrageously confident and worthy cosmic interface between punk, post-punk and Sabbathian heavy metal, a gateway between accepted classic dark rock Kiss/Alice/Green Manalishi-stylee and the far flung future (ie Now, motherfuckers). “Standing outside the boundaries of rock’n’roll and aiming their sounds inside,” as Greil Marcus once put it. And LYSOL is Melvins’ greatest and most sacred gift to future heathens, for its tones and vibrations taken together often and in large doses offer listeners the key to Eternal Cuntedness.” – JULIAN COPE, HEAD HERITAGE

Houdini, arguably the band’s most direct and concise statement” – PITCHFORK

If grunge was achieving breakthrough status in Seattle, it was being perfected in its rawest sense on this album [Bullhead].” – ALL MUSIC

Stoner Witch, surely one of the most massive records they have ever conceived…The Melvins are consummate masters of mood, in particular melancholy, and never more so than here. There’s such majestic authority and undertow to the music, and on this…they are no less than Vikings. The Melvins totally push the bounds of what you’ll accept as a normal rock song.” – VICE
