Melvins will release a new album on Aoril 19 via Ipecac Records. Tarantula Heart features a guest appearance from Roy Mayorga (Nausea, Amebix) and was recorded in an unusual fashion. Melvins drummer Dale Crover and Mayorga drummed along to some riffs by Melvins Buzz Osborne and Steve Mcdonald. Osborne then took those drum parts and then constructed an album off the drums and from various other recordings. The album also features We Are The Asteroid guitar player Gary Chester.
