The Melvins unveil the latest twist in their 29-year history with Melvins Lite, an additional incarnation of the band that finds founders Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover partnering with Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk) for a 10-song released titled "Freak Puke" (June 5, Ipecac Recordings).
"The Melvins have a long history of mixing up our line-ups and I think that's what has kept us relevant for so long," explains Osborne. "Consider the 'Freak Puke' record the fifth side of the four-sided Melvins' triangle."
Dunn is known as one of rock and jazz's top bass players, performing on both a traditional and upright bass in a wide range of bands and as a freelance musician. He is currently recording the new Tomahawk album, is a member of Fantomas and was the bassist for Mr. Bungle.
"Freak Puke" was recorded by Toshi Kasai and the Melvins in Los Angeles.
