Melvins Debut “Embrace The Rub” Video


The Melvins have released a video for their new track “Embrace The Rub” which was directed by Mackie Osborne, wife of the band’s frontman/guitarist Buzz Osborne. The band’s drummer Dale Crover said of the track:

“‘Embrace The Rub‘ is a Steven McDonald penned, punker tune throwback to his days as a young Hawthorne, CA punk hanging out with Black Flag. For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”

You can find the song on the band’s forthcoming new album, “Pinkus Abortion Technician“, which is out on April 20th and features two bassists: Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). In around a month’s time the group will head out on this extensive tour with both bassists in tow.
