Get ready for a double dose of low end — The Melvins have revealed that their upcoming LP,  Pinkus Abortion Technician, features both bassists that have recently worked with the band — Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). That double-pronged bass attacked will join Melvins staples King Buzzo and Dale Crover on a 10-week tour, including a Montreal stop at Corona Theatre on May 14. Tickets go on-sale Friday, February 19 at 10:00 via evenko.ca.



From the press release:

“With our upcoming release, we double your bass player with Steven McDonald AND Jeff Pinkus holding down the bottom,” explains Dale Crover. It’s an experiment in the low end of the aural spectrum where we asked ourselves, ‘would it work?’ ‘could it work??’ ‘should it work???’ The answers were yes, yes and YES!”

“We’ve never had two bass players. We’ve had two drummers and two guitar players so it makes total sense to now have two bass players, adds Buzz Osborne. “We’ll be taking this two-prong bass attack on the road as well which should prove to be interesting. Pinkus Abortion Technician is a radically great record and was a stone groove to record. We drank a lot of coffee and enjoyed each other’s company. I like Steven and Jeff a great deal. I admire their bass playing and singing and both of them can grill a mean steak.”
