Rock/metal vets Melvins have uploaded one last preview for their upcoming Melvins 1983 release, ‘Working With God’ (due out February 26th through Ipecac Recordings – pre-order), in the form of “1 Fuck You”; stream below.
Mainman Buzz Osborne states, “Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!” A presser adds, “This song is not the only tribute piece across the album, “I Fuck Around” being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot anymore?”
As posted, Melvins have announced a Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14th) live streaming event titled ‘Divine Monkeyshines: Valentine’s Day Special.’ The online gig follows the band’s debut live streaming performance from New Year’s Eve. “Combining a musical performance with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the band members (Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and Steven McDonald), the Melvins put a unique spin on the at-home concert experience,” notes the announcement. Tickets and exclusive merchandise are available here.
“Round two of Melvins TV!” said Osborne. “Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Five different songs plus band interviews and other cool stuff. All this fine entertainment for only $5.” Check out the event flyer and trailer below.
