News is pretty slow at the moment, and while Tool are in writing mode, i don’t expect there to be much coming out of their world in the next couple of months. Best we can hope for are a few more A Perfect Circle or Puscifer dates at this stage.
However, there is some good news, last week The Melvins announced that they will be releasing Sugar Daddy, a live album recorded sometime during the Nude With Boots tour. Here’s the tracklist:
01. Nude with Boots
02. Dog Island
03. Dies Iraea
04. Civilized Worm
05. The Kicking Machine
06. Eye Flies
07. Tipping The Lion
08. Rat Faced Granny
09. The Hawk
10. You’ve Never Been Right
11. A History of Bad Men
12. Star Spangled Banner
The album should be released on the 31st of May via Ipecac Recordings.
In other news, The Melvins were by far the best act at Soundwave on Saturday – please don’t wait another 5 years or so before coming back again!
Love A Senile Animal so this is great news
Saw them last night.. they tore Perth a new arsehole
They are still one of the very best live bands out there today. Saw them with Primus and they were so frikken good.

Yeah, I know they played those 2 shows, but that was hardly a proper tour, especially for those outside of Sydney and Melbourne!

I wish I lived in Seattle, they are playing a residency at the Crocodile, one night will be Bullhead and Stoner Witch played in full. The other night is Eggnog, Houdini and Lysol. I’d give 2 arms and a leg to see both of these shows. Pretty much my favorite period of their work being played live over 2 different nights.
