Listen To New MELVINS Song 'Christ Hammer'

MELVINS will release a double album, "A Walk With Love And Death", on July 7 via Ipecac Recordings.

The dual albums find the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcasing two distinct sides to the band's music: "Death", a proper MELVINS release, and "Love", the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short also titled "A Walk With Love And Death". A release date for the short has not been announced yet but a trailer has been made available.

The song "Christ Hammer", taken from "Death", can be streamed below.

"This was a huge undertaking," explained band ringleader Buzz Osborne. "All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us."

Drummer Dale Crover added, "'A Walk With Love And Death' is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You'll sleep with the lights on after listening."

The albums, which include guests Joey Santiago (THE PIXIES), Teri Gender Bender (LE BUTCHERETTES, CRYSTAL FAIRY) and Anna Waronker (THAT DOG), were self-produced with engineer Toshi Kosai.
