The Melvins Premiere “Sesame Street Meat” via The Quietus

The Melvins, in anticipation of the October 14 release of Hold It In (Ipecac Recordings), have released “Sesame Street Meat” via The Quietus. Fans will surely devour “Sesame Street Meat” which nods to the band’s Gluey Porch Treatments debut, and encapsulates their great-humored, gut-wrenching, riff-centric formula, which has continued to evolve with each release.

About the track Dale Crover comments: “This track is one of the first songs we recorded together. I love Jeff’s slinky little bass line that comes in around the 3rd measure! Then the whole band kicks in and just crushes you like a bug! One of my faves! I can’t wait to play it live!”

Don’t forget to listen to their previously released “Brass Cupcake” which is streaming via Rolling Stone.

Digital pre-orders for Hold It In are available now via iTunes with the album lead-off, “Bride of Crankenstein,” offered as an immediate download upon order.
