Melvins Unveil New Single, “Caddy Daddy”
Melvins have released “Caddy Daddy,” a song from their forthcoming new album, Working With God.
This particular Melvins album will be released under the Melvins 1983 moniker, featuring “as close to the original Melvins lineup as we’re willing to get,” according to press copy. King Buzzo, the last original Melvin left standing, and nearly-original member Dale Crover (who’s been with the band since 1984) have once again teamed up with original Melvins’ drummer Mike Dillard to record the album.
The band bio / press release accompanying the album contains the following taunt:
“‘Working With God’ is a damn good record.
“It’s the album bands like Green Day and Metallica wish they could put out if they only had the guts.
“Foo Fighters maybe but probably not.
“Once again, no guts…”
The band released the album’s first single, “Brian, The Horse-Faced Goon,” in December.
Working with God comes out on February 26 via Ipecac; pre-order here. The previous Melvins 1983 album, Tres Cabrones, came out in 2013.
