Hard-touring sludge godfathers Melvins and glam-punk bratfathers Redd Kross are teaming up for a formidable co-headlining tour this summer/fall and they'll be hitting Melvins' favored haunt, the Social, in late October.

The two bands will be swapping members back and forth on tour: Krosser and bassist Steve McDonald will be playing in Melvins, and fearsome Melvins drummer Dale Crover will sit in with Redd Kross nightly.

Melvins, Redd Kross and ShitKid play the Social on Monday, Oct. 21, at 9 p.m. Tickets go on sale May 17.
