As the summer U.S. Melvins / Le Butcherettes tour continues on Joyful Noise announced an upcoming split 7" between Dale Crover and Qui. Check out all the info on that below.

Dale also recently announced that he's begun a project called Broken Bat along with Ty Segall and Steven McDonald of OFF!/Redd Kross. They've got a BandCamp page set up with a clip of the song Take My Medicine.

Mind-fuckery abounds in this split 7" from Dale Crover and Qui. Dale Crover is a man who needs no introduction. In his 30+ years as drummer of the Melvins (and also occasionally, Nirvana), Crover has influenced us here at Joyful Noise more than any other single human being. And it's a perfect fit to his new song to be coupled with our friends Qui. Both tracks are incredible examples of the imaginative antics these folks are known for. The release is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies on red & yellow split color vinyl, as well as non-limited black vinyl. Release Date: August 28, 2015.

A new limited edition book about the Stoner Witch album has just been published by Karma Books, written by Bob Nickas & Ted O'Sullivan. Only 500 were printed so head over to the Karma website to order one soon. "A book-length conversation about the Melvins and the album Stoner Witch, side-by-side, track-by-track.126 pages, over 30 illustrations. An album that "sounds as inventive and scary, as heavy and evocative as it did twenty years ago. It has lasted the test of time ... and always will." UPDATE: Stoner Witch book release party happening tomorrow (June 29th) at KARMA (39 Great Jones Street) 1pm-230pm. Bob and Ted will be signing copies of the book and The MELVINS will be there as well hanging out and playing a short set!
