The Melvins Recruit Butthole Surfers For New Album

The Melvins have recruited two members of the Butthole Surfers for their new album "Hold It In," which the band will be releasing in North America on October 14th.

The Melvins Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover recorded the new 12-track album in Los Angeles and Austin and were joined on the effort by Butthole Surfers' guitar player Paul Leary and bass player JD Pinkus.

"Hold It In is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullsh*t," said Osborne. "Paul is one of the best guitar players I have ever heard and Pinkus has an outside the box type of approach to both guitar and bass that you just have to let it ride. I can't believe this actually happened. I'm thrilled."

"It's very rare you get a chance to work with three folks from the 'Break A Wish' foundation, all at the same time," said Pinkus. "I believe they'll remember their experience with me forever (or until they finally all lose their fight with S.I.D.S)."

The band will be kicking off a U.S. tour in support of the new album, the day after it is released with a show in Sacramento on October 15th. The touring lineup will include Osborne, Crover and Pinkus.
