bassesloaded-melvinsThe Melvins, who have a history of imaginative line-up changes, feature not one but six different bass players on their appropriately titled new album Basses Loaded, out June 3rd on Ipecac Recordings.

The collection features Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover joined by Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Redd Kross’ Steve McDonald, Butthole Surfers’ J.D. Pinkus, Big Business’ Jared Warren, Mr. Bungle/Fantomas’ Trevor Dunn (aka Melvins Lite) and Crover swapping the drum kit for bass in the Melvins 1983 iteration. The album’s nod to baseball and the inclusion of the band’s own version of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” is a natural one, with Buzz and Dale often spotted at games across the country.

You can listen to new track “Hideous Woman” here. Also attached to the track an interview where frontman Buzz Osborne talks on the other forthcoming Mike & The Melvins’ release, the long-awaited Three Men and a Baby (April 1, Sub Pop). Below you’ll find the track list for Basses Loaded along with the groups current tour dates.
