Melvins Announce New Album ‘Tarantula Heart’, Share Video for New Single

    Melvins have announced their latest album, Tarantula, to be released on April 19 via Ipecac. Lead single ‘Working the Ditch’ arrives today alongside a music video by Jesse Nieminen. Check it out below.

    “The way we approached Tarantula Heart was different than any other Melvins’ album,” Buzz Osborne explained in a statement. “I had Dale and Roy Mayorga come in and play along with Steven and I to some riffs, then I took those sessions and figured out what parts would work and wrote new music to fit. This isn’t a studio approach we’ve ever taken. Usually we have the songs written BEFORE we start recording!”

    “The majority of Tarantula Heart has dual drum parts,” drummer Dale Crover added. “Roy is an amazing drummer. We would discuss what we would do pattern wise, then we’d just go for it. Improvising riffs and trading off on drum fills.”
