THE MELVINS Joined By BUTTHOLE SURFERS Members For New Album, Fall Tour

Posted by on July 30, 2014 at 2:51 pm

The Melvins are back as a quartet, baby! Alongside the usual fare of frontman and guitarist Buzz Osbourne and drummer Dale Crover, the group will see the addition of Butthole Surfers' guitarist Paul Leary and bassist J.D. Pinkus. The group will be releasing their new record Hold It In on October 14, the first record they've done as a quartet since their 2010 album The Bride Screams Murder.

Osbourne has an interesting take on the record.

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