Though the ‘Melvins Lite’ will release Freak Puke in June, the regular ol’ Melvins have partnered with Scion A/V to release a new EP, titled The Bulls and the Bees. Available as a free download on March 13th via Scion A/V, the five-song collection will comprise the latest batch of songs since the group’s 2010 LP, The Bride Screamed Murder. Buzz Osborne described the effort as “amazing in its noisy calm intensity.”

Also, Scion A/V will be sponsoring the group’s coast-to-coast tour, which kicks off April 11th in San Jose, CA and comes to a close on May 11th, when they slingshot back to California. Along the way, they’ll visit just about everywhere – including Florida. Check out the full itinerary below, just before the EP’s tracklist.
