Though King Buzzo’s iconic work with Melvins continues, he is coming out with his second solo album, Gift of Sacrifice on May 15. Joining him on the nine-song release is his longtime friend and Mr. Bungle bass player Trevor Dunn.
In support of the album, King Buzzo (aka Buzz Osborne) embarks on an eight week North American tour starting off with a May 13 date in Palm Springs, Ca. (The Alibi). Other cities covered on the trek include Dallas, TX (5/23, Three Links), New Orleans, LA (5/27,Santos), New York, NY (6/5, The Bowery Ballroom), Pittsburgh, PA (6/12, Thunderbird Music Hall), Chicago, IL (6/20, Empty Bottle), and Seattle WA (7/1, Columbia City Theater). The tour ends its run with a July 6 stop in Los Angeles, CA (The Echo).
“Gift of Sacrifice was a stone groove to record and it will be a f**king blast to finally hit the road with my buddy Trevor Dunn,” said Osborne, who was a member of Fantômas with Dunn. “Once we take the stage, I guarantee we’ll kick the crap out of this album.”
Osborne’s solo debut, This Machine Kills Artists, came out in 2014. Tickets for the tour go on-sale Friday, February at 10 a.m. (local time).
