THE MELVINS DEBUT THE “EMBRACE THE RUB VIDEO FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM,
PINKUS ABORTION TECHNICIAN (APRIL 20TH, IPECAC RECORDINGS)
The Melvins, who recently announced the April 20th release of Pinkus Abortion Technician (Ipecac Recordings), have debuted the Mackie Osborne directed video for “Embrace The Rub”
Embrace The Rub” is a Steven McDonald penned, punker tune throwback to his days as a young Hawthorne, CA punk hanging out with Black Flag,” explained Dale Crover. “For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”
The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players being Steve McDonald (Redd Kross,OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). The Melvins previously shared the song “Stop Moving To Florida” from the forthcoming release.
The band embark on a 10-week North American tour on April 26th. The trek will feature the Melvins as a four-piece with both Pinkus and McDonald joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover. Dates can be found here . European tour dates are being planned and will be announced when ready.
