Japan earthquake & tsunami statement

Posted: Mar 11, 2011

To all our fans, followers & friends in Japan and the pacific we wish you the best and hope you are all ok with minimal damage and interruption in your lives! 

Our friend Tadashi/Daymare told us that Melvins were apparently soundchecking in Tokyo when the earthquake struck! All of the bands are ok (tour was with High on Fire and Unearthly Trance) but Dale hurt his finger in the evacuation. Quake #2 in one tour... insane! Japan earthquake was apparently 8000 times stronger than Christchurch, and tragic as well.

And FYI: Boris people are all ok.

We just keep hearing more distressing news hour by hour.

Wishing all the Japanese the best!
