Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers and Honky fame will be filling in for Melvins bassist Jared Warren (on paternity leave) on the storied band’s 30th anniversary tour, joining usual suspects guitarist/singer Buzz Osborne, drummer Dale Crover and drummer Coady Willis.

The band plays the Mohawk Aug. 9. The Melvins recorded some new material with Pinkus in December, but Amphetamine Reptile head cheese Tom Hazelmeyer confirmed Monday the label has not yet slated the results for release.
