The Melvins to Release New Album in October

Sludge-metal elders, The Melvins, will return with their first studio album in over 4 years on October 14th.

King Buzzo and fellow Melvin veteran Dale Crover will be joined by Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers and bassist JD Pinkus.

"Hold It In is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit," said Osborne.

"Paul is one of the best guitar players I have ever heard and Pinkus has an outside the box type of approach to both guitar and bass that you just have to let it ride. I can't believe this actually happened. I'm thrilled."

"It's very rare you get a chance to work with three folks from the 'Break A Wish' foundation, all at the same time," said Pinkus.

"I believe they'll remember their experience with me forever (or until they finally all lose their fight with S.I.D.S)."

The new record, entitled "Hold It In", will feature 12 tracks and has been recorded in both LA and Austin.
