Today Melvins announced the release date of their forthcoming Melvins 1983 album Working With God. The album is set for release on February 26th, 2021 via Ipecac Recordings. Along with the presale for Working With God, they also announced the presale of vinyl reissues of both Gluey Porch Treatments and Hostile Ambient Takeover. GPT gets updated artwork, and this is actually the first time HAT will ever be on vinyl. The best place to submit your pre-order is via the Ipecac Blixt merch store or their European store if you're on the other side of the Atlantic. As a teaser, the band released I Fuck Around / Bouncing Rick to stream, these tracks were also included on the Mullet EP released in September on Amphetamine Reptile Records.

“I F**k Around” is — you guessed it — a juvenile re-imagining of The Beach Boys’ classic “I Get Around”, and “Bouncing Rick” is about Osborne and Dillard’s junior-high biology teacher. Musically, it’s the kind of noise-sludge-punk amalgamation you’d expect from the early Melvins lineup that formed in Aberdeen and Monstesano in Washington state decades ago. It’s reflective of our 8th grade sense of humor, which we’ve never grown out of,” Osborne said of “I F**k Around”. “We hope Brian Wilson doesn’t get mad.” - Buzz
