King Buzzo and Trevor Dunn Announce King Dunn Tour

King Dunn

Melvins mastermind King Buzzo (aka Buzz Osborne) and Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn are teaming up this summer for a duo tour of the U.S. Kicking off on August 1st, the longtime collaborators will be keeping things acoustic for the King Dunn Tour.

“I’ve been waiting a LONG time to do an acoustic tour with Trevor,” Buzzo shares. “He’s a fantastic player, and has the ability to make his bass sound like an oil tanker crashing into a coral reef.”

Buzzo and Dunn have collaborated many times over the years. Dunn played in Melvins Lite and on Osborne’s 2020 album Gift Of Sacrifice, while both are also members of Fantômas. They released an album as King Dunn called Invention of Hysteria in 2022.

Dunn will be playing the double bass for the whole two-month run. Former Melvins bassist and Butthole Surfers member JD Pinkus will be opening each night, though his solo work revolves around the banjo.
