New Melvins Album Coming Soon!
Good news, peeps! The Melvins are dropping another album on us on 4/30. Everybody Loves Sausages will feature both the full-throttle Melvins line-up featuring Jarred Warren and Cody Willis and a few tracks from the Melvins Lite line-up featuring Trevor Dunn on stand-up bass. There will also be several guests in the mix (including familiar names like Kevin Rutmanis and Jello Biafra) and the album is a zany collection of covers that the band enjoys.
The Melvins are one of the best bands working today, and their reputation for delivering astounding live performances is well-deserved. If you have never seen them in person and you get a chance to do so, don't miss out. In the meantime, this album sounds like an intriguing purchase; here's a list of the featured tracks:
