Melvins to Release "The Bride Screamed Murder" June 1st, Tour With Isis

Holy fucksandwich! I really don't know how I haven't heard about this until now but Seattle Sludge/Stoner Metal gods "the Melvins" are releasing a new album entitled "The Bride Screamed Murder" on June 1st! (OK, so maybe they’re closer to Aberdeen but what kind of alliteration can I get from that?) This will be the legendary band's 19th Full-length release counting their remix album "Chicken Switch" which was released late last year. This will also be the 3rd album to feature their dual drums line-up made up of Buzz "King Buzzo" Osborne, Dale Crover and the drum & bass duo from the band "Big Business." This release follows their 2008 album "Nude with Boots" and will once again be released on Mike Patton's Ipecac Records. I can't hype/jock/recommend this release enough and I HIGHLY suggest that you see them on tour with label-mates & Post Metal godfathers "Isis." You can catch their tour dates below under the video preview of the album, and be on the lookout for "The Bride Screamed Murder" in stores and online on June 1st!

Some fun Melvins facts: The band took their name from a hated employee at the grocery store where Buzz worked, and Nirvana Mastermind Kurt Cobain once tried out for the bass player spot in the band but supposedly was so nervous he forgot the songs and thus didn't make the band.
