Crystal Fairy, the band featuring Le Butcherettes’ Teri Gender Bender, the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover with Mars Volta/At The Drive-In’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, have made their self-titled debut album available for listening via stream, via Rolling Stone.

The eleven-song album arrives Feb. 24 via Ipecac Recordings. An article that discusses the band’s origin and recording sessions accompanies the pre-release listen.

“When the Melvins toured with Le Butcherettes, Teri would come out at the end of the set and do ‘Rebel Girl’ with us,” explained drummer Dale Crover. “It was almost always the highlight of the show! From doing that, we knew there was some chemistry between us that was worth exploring. We became close friends with both Teri and Omar on the tour and came up with the idea of starting a new band with them.”

“Omar caught up with us on the Melvins’ tour because he is an admirer. Through the travels, the Melvins and Omar connected as well,” offered Teri Gender Bender. “Sometimes, Omar and I would fantasize loudly of hopefully being able to form a power together. Before we knew it, we were writing music in the studio (both in El Paso and L.A.) and birthed a magical little gem that I am extremely proud to be a part of.”
