The Melvins have released one last taste of their upcoming Melvins 1983 release, Working With God, releasing the song “1 Fuck You” – an ode to the American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Working With God will be out on February 26th via Ipecac Recordings.
Buzz Osborne says: “Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!” This song is not the only tribute piece across the album, “I Fuck Around” being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot anymore?

Incoming this weekend – the band’s Valentine’s Day (February 14th) livestreaming event dubbed “Divine Monkeyshines: Valentine’s Day Special.” Combining a musical performance with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the band members (Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, and Steven McDonald), the Melvins put a unique spin on the at-home concert experience. “Round two of Melvins TV!” said Osborne. “Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Five different songs plus band interviews and other cool stuff. All this fine entertainment for only $5.”
