Freak Puke
The Melvins are different these days. Calling themselves Melvins Lite now, the band finds founders Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover partnering with Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk) for a 10-song release titled Freak Puke.

The album drops June 5 through Ipecac Recordings.
“The Melvins have a long history of mixing up our line-ups and I think that’s what has kept us relevant for so long,” explains Osborne. “Consider the Freak Puke record the fifth side of the four-sided Melvins’ triangle.”

Freak Puke was recorded by Toshi Kasai and the Melvins in Los Angeles, and the band will be touring this year in support of the release. You will find those dates at the end of this post.
