King BuzzoMelvins frontman Buzz Osborne (aka King Buzzo) is headed to Australia for a 10-date solo acoustic tour of Australia in August. With a career spanning 31 years, 30 albums, and over 2,000 live performances, this tour marks the first time that the monarch of metal has performed acoustically in intimate settings.

Buzz is the frontman and founding member of Melvins, whose dark and sludgy sound influenced the work of many acclaimed grunge and metal bands including Nirvana, Soundgarden, Green River and the Seattle music scene itself.

Last year The Melvins released their 19th studio album "Tres Cabrones" which was declared to be a "psychedelic hard-rock gem." King Buzzo's solo and acoustic debut "This Machine Kills Artists" is out on May 30 through Ipecac Recordings. Across 17 tracks, it uses no electric guitars, amplifiers or direct boxes, offering a surprising new side to the grunge progenitor and a rawness that spotlights his skill as a songwriter.
