The Melvins announce a new record, Working With God, and a pair of limited edition vinyl reissues, arriving February 26th via Ipecac Recordings
The Melvins have a busy February ahead of them, releasing a trio of albums via Ipecac Recordings on Feb. 26th – a new release named Working With God as well as a pair of vinyl reissues, Hostile Ambient Takeover and Gluey Porch Treatments. Working With God is the second release from the 1983 iteration of the band, which features Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and original drummer Mike Dillard, who reunite after the trio’s previous release in 2013, Tres Cabrones. The band previews this new release with a pair of singles – “I Fuck Around”, which is a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys’ “I Get Around”, and “Bouncing Rick”, a song about Buzz Osborne and Mike Dillard’s junior high biology teacher -, which you can listen to below. Commenting on “I Fuck Around”, Osborne said: “It’s reflective of our 8th grade sense of humour, which we’ve never grown out of. We hope Brian Wilson doesn’t get mad.”
The new record and limited edition reissues are all now available for pre-order, with a selection of limited edition vinyl variants available. Both digital and physical pre-orders can be found here.
