The Melvins have released a new official video for the track “Embrace The Rub” which was directed by Mackie Osborne, wife of the band’s frontman / guitarist Buzz Osborne.
The song is one of several new tunes arriving on the band’s forthcoming new album, “Pinkus Abortion Technician“, which is out on April 20th from Ipecac Recordings. The album features two bassists – Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers) – both of whom will join the band on tour [INFO] beginning next month.
The band’s drummer Dale Crover said of the track: “‘Embrace The Rub‘ is a Steven McDonald penned, punker tune throwback to his days as a young Hawthorne, CA punk hanging out with Black Flag. For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”
