The Melvins ready Tres Cabrones, tour (2013)

The Melvins are set to release Tres Cabrones, a 12-song release that finds Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover reuniting with original drummer Mike Dillard, on Nov. 5 via Ipecac Recordings.
Tres Cabrones is as close as we’re willing to get to the Melvins 1983 line-up,” explained Osborne.  “The best part is it’s all new songs.  I specifically wrote tunes that would be good for these guys to play and it worked out great.  We had no interest in rehashing tunes we wrote 30 years ago and chose instead to simply create NEW songs.  It worked out perfectly.”
The Melvins are currently in the midst of their 30th Anniversary Tour in their ongoing four-piece iteration (father-to-be Jared Warren is on paternity leave with Butthole Surfers’ bass player Jeff Pinkus filling in).
