Legendary rock outfit the Melvins return with a double album, A Walk With Love and Death. The dual release, finds the trio of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald showcasing two distinct sides of the band's music: Death, a proper Melvins' release, and Love, the score to the Jesse Nieminen directed, self-produced short also titled A Walk With Love and Death.
"This was a huge undertaking," explained band ringleader Buzz Osborne. "All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us." Drummer Dale Crover adds, "A Walk With Love and Death is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart. You'll sleep with the lights on after listening."
The albums, which include guests Joey Santiago (The Pixies), Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes, Crystal Fairy) and Anna Waronker (That Dog), were self-produced by the band with engineer Toshi Kosai.
