THE MELVINS Stream New Song “What’s Wrong With You”!

Hardcore punk or sludge metal legends THE MELVINS are adding one more feather to their long list of humongous catalogue. They are releasing a double album ‘A Walk With Love & Death on July 7 via Ipecac Recordings, and with that going on THE MELVINS are streaming a new song, ‘What’s Wrong With You‘ off the same album. 

The song features vocals from Steven McDonald (Redd Kross/OFF!), who is part of the band’s current recording and touring line-up, as well as That Dog‘s Anna Waronker

We love Steven! ‘What’s Wrong with You’ is a great addition to our long Melvins catalog,” proclaims Buzz Osborne. “There’s no other song on this record that sounds like it and that’s what makes it so cool!”, he further adds.

The track sounds just about fine, with an epic juxtaposition of punk rock and sludge metal, THE MELVINS are back at it again. After all these years the veterans remain unhinged and are ready to hit it off big again with their new upcoming album. A Walk With Love & Death‘ is a double album and hence the trio of Osborne, Dale Crover and McDonald have chosen to take a rather fresh approach on it, with the two sides being named Death which is a through and thorough THE MELVINS release and the other being, Love, the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short film also titled A Walk With Love & Death. Co-produced with Toshi Kosai, the latest album features guests Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes/Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog).

Stream the new single above. The band also recently announced an extensive, 12-week North American tour, in support of their new album, with label mates Spotlights opening on all dates.

About Rattlehead

Hi, Rattlehead here. I'm from India, and I'm obsessed with metal of all sub-genres but mostly into thrash and death. I also love other genres, like jazz, funk, rock, some punk, a bit of blues, some country, but well, metal is where I feel at home. I'm always on the run discovering new music. Fanboying Megadeth since I was 13. Love to talk about metal, sports and a little bit of everything here and there. I also love dissing your god, I love food, seeing metal gigs, traveling and also a metal merch and record collector. I hope you like what I write and the music I suggest you. Please do share if you like. Cheers and stay heavy \m/
