Melvins To Release New Covers Effort “Everybody Loves Sausages” In April


The Melvins are out to show off their influences with the coming April 30th release of a new covers album titled “Everybody Loves Sausages” on Ipecac Recordings. The bands own Buzz Osborne said of the effort:

“This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that influence us musically. We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans.”
