MELVINS Crush Impromptu In-Studio Performance With A Classic & THE ROLLING STONES Cover

Featuring a raucous Rolling Stones cover.

The Melvins just keep on truckin' in 2022. They recently wrapped up a string of dates in support of Ministry. They have a new split EP with Los Angeles noise-rockers Dumb Numbers — entitled Broken Pipe — coming out on the Joyful Noise label on April 29. (You can listen to the title track, which was released earlier this month, here).

Now from the Melvins comes a new in-studio performance as part of the latest installment of EarthQuaker Sessions. The two-song set includes "Queen" from 1994's Stoner Witch album, and a sludgy version of The Rolling Stones' "Sway"—a Stones-fan favorite and deep cut from 1971's Sticky Fingers album—that nearly rears off the tracks before a howling solo from guitarist Buzz Osborne, using the Hizumitas distortion pedal designed by EarthQuaker Devices, who host the sessions.

The MelvinsOsborne, drummer Dale Crover, and current bassist Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, previously OFF! prior to joining Melvins)—also engage in their patented dry humor between tracks, which in itself, is worth your time.
