The Melvins finally uncover the secret of the new album.
The Melvins return with a 13-track covers album titled "Everybody Loves
Sausages," which is set for an Apr. 30 release via Ipecac Recordings.
"This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that
influence us musically," explains Buzz Osborne. "We REALLY like all of
these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because
first and foremost we are HUGE music fans."
In a decidedly Melvins approach to a covers album, the band not only
selected a unique assortment of songs to cover, ranging from Roxy
Music's "In Every Dream Home A Heartache" to Queen's "Best Friend," they
also enlisted several friends to take part including Mudhoney's Mark
Arm joining them for The Scientists' "Set It On Fire" and Neurosis'
Scott Kelly pitching in on a cover of Venom's "Warhead."
While the release is billed as a proper Melvins' album (featuring the
line-up of Osborne, Dale Crover, Jared Warren and Coady Willis), there
are a handful of songs recorded as the Melvins Lite incarnation of the
band (Osborne, Crover and Trevor Dunn): "Female Trouble" (Divine a.k.a.
John Waters), "Timothy Leary Lives" (Pop-O-Pies) and "Romance By Tales
of Terror" (Tales of Terror).
