Melvins Attempting World Record With New Tour

The Melvins

That’s right, folks. Only a band like the Melvins could pull of such an ambitious feat.

The Melvins will — with their tour this fall — attempt to become the Guinness World Record holders for the first band to tour the full United States and D.C. in 51 days. And they are vanning it, which makes it even more rad.

Those dates follow at the end of this post.

“We figured it was time for us to do something REALLY crazy,” says frontman Buzz Osborne. “51 shows in 50 states plus 1 on D.C. and all in 51 days? Jeez! I wonder if we can do it?”

I think they can. At least I hope they can pull it off.
