It's nearly 2013 and the Melvins will be breaking in a select few along with Redd Kross in L.A. at the historic Alexandria Hotel for their New Years Eve Ballroom Blitz! The Melvins will also be playing a show in San Francisco at the Great American Music Hall on Dec. 29th.

There's sure to be some interesting limited releases available at the New Years eve show, including a split 12" w/ Red Kross which has the Melvins covering Female Trouble and Carpe Diem by The Fugs! Redd Kross side will have 2 versions of "Linda Blair" old & new. Silk screened sleeves by Obsolete Industries. 300 are being pressed so there should be a handful leftover after the show for sale on the web from AmRep.
Joyful Noise Recordings will soon be opening up for pre-order their Flexi-Disc series for 2013 and not only are the Melvins being featured, Mackie Osborne did the artwork for the optional Deluxe Wooden Box for the set. "The Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc Series features new, unreleased recordings from 12 of our favorite bands - released monthly on square, single-sided, clear 7" Flexi Discs. Limited to just 1000 copies solely on Flexi Disc, these songs will not be released digitally or on any other format.
