The Melvins return to the airwaves April 20th with their new album Pinkus Abortion Technician!
“With our upcoming release, we double your bass player with Steven McDonald and Jeff Pinkus holding down the bottom,” explained drummer Dale Crover. “It’s an experiment in the low end of the aural spectrum where we asked ourselves, ‘would it work?’ ‘could it work??’ ‘should it work???’ The answers were yes, yes and YES!”
“We’ve never had two bass players. We’ve had two drummers and two guitar players so it makes total sense to now have two bass players,” added guitarist Buzz Osborne. “We’ll be taking this two-prong bass attack on the road as well which should prove to be interesting. Pinkus Abortion Technician is a radically great record and was a stone groove to record. We drank a lot of coffee and enjoyed each other’s company. I like Steven and Jeff a great deal. I admire their bass playing and singing and both of them can grill a mean steak.”
