March 28, 2018 – Fullerton, Calif. – The Melvins, who recently announced the April 20 release of Pinkus Abortion Technician (Ipecac Recordings), have debuted the Mackie Osborne directed video for “Embrace The Rub” (https://youtu.be/cnbeRJGygtg).

“’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,” explained Dale Crover. “For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”

The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players being Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). The Melvins previously shared the song “Stop Moving To Florida” (https://youtu.be/zqj1c_DrYBY) from the forthcoming release. Pinkus Abortion Technician pre-orders are available now (http://smarturl.it/MelvinsPinkus) with digital pre-orders including an instant download of both “Stop Moving To Florida” and “Embrace The Rub.”

The band embarks on a 10-week North American tour on April 26. The trek will feature the Melvins as a four-piece with both Pinkus and McDonald joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover.
