Quantcast

Melvins have been promoted to Captain Comedown

Posted by on May 20, 2015

Sludge vetarans, Melvins, will release a split with Le Bucherettes titled Chaos as Usual on CD and 10″ vinyl format and to tease it, they unveiled their side of the split with the song “Captain Comedown” which features Pinkus from Butthole Surfers on bass.

The song is a heavy stomping display of slow doomy riffage that moves into catchier grounds relentlessly once Pinkus’ metallic bass hops in and steals the track entirely. Give it a try and tell me I’m wrong.

 

The split will be sold exclusively during their summer tour with Le Butcherettes on the following dates.
