SECOND SOLO ALBUM FROM THE MELVINS FRONTMAN FEATURES MR. BUNGLE’S TREVOR DUNN
King Buzzo, the iconic Melvins’ singer and guitar player, returns with his second solo album, Gift of Sacrifice, on May 15 via Ipecac Recordings. The nine-song release finds Buzz Osborne joined by longtime friend and Mr. Bunglebass player Trevor Dunn.
The collection’s first single, “Science in Modern America” can be heard now. Album pre-orders, available as the same link, include CD, black vinyl, a limited edition hot pink variant available exclusively via the Ipecac webstore as well as a tour only, opaque tangerine vinyl version.
“Gift of Sacrifice was a stone groove to record and it will be a f*cking blast to finally hit the road with my buddy Trevor Dunn,” says Osborne. “Once we take the stage, I guarantee we’ll kick the crap out of this album.” Dunn and Osborne have worked together several times in the past, both as members of Fantômas and with Dunn performing in the Melvins Lite iteration of the long-running, legendary band.
Gift of Sacrifice’s arrival will be met with an eight-week North American tour, European tour dates are in the works.
