Melvins and Meshuggah announce new releases

The Melvins and Meshuggah have plenty in common. They both have toured with Tool. They both have great drummers. They both start with the letter M. And they both recently announced a new release.

Firstly, The Melvins have announced a new album called Hold It In set for release on October 14. The album features Buzz and Dale as usual, but rather than the usual four-piece, they are joined by Butthole Surfers Jeff Pinkus and Paul Leary.

“‘Hold It In’ is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit,” said Osborne.

“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.”

“It’s very rare you get a chance to work with three folks from the ‘Break A Wish’ foundation, all at the same time,” said Pinkus. “I believe they’ll remember their experience with me forever (or until they finally all lose their fight with S.I.D.S).”

Aussie Melvins fans should also remember that King Buzzo is doing his solo thing later this month.

Onto Meshuggah: they will be releasing yet another live DVD. Titled The Ophidian Trek, this release will have both a DVD and Blu-Ray version and features tracks recorded from their last tour. This includes a show from Wacken recorded in 2013.
