The ever prolific Melvins return with Hold It In, their first studio album as a quartet since 2010′s The Bride Screamed Murder. Joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover for the 12-song album are Butthole Surfers’ guitar player Paul Leary and bass player JD Pinkus. The album was recorded in both Los Angeles and Austin earlier this year, and shall be released via Ipecac Recordings this October.

And now, the band share the the first sounds fromthe new album, Hold It In, with the track Brass Cupcake which can be streamed below:

Buzz Osborne commented on the album “Hold It In is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullshit,” and continues to add “Paul is one of the best guitar players I have ever heard and Pinkus has an outside the box type of approach to both guitar and bass that you just have to let it ride. I can’t believe this actually happened. I’m thrilled.”

It’s very rare you get a chance to work with three folks from the ‘Break A Wish’ foundation, all at the same time,” said Pinkus. “I believe they’ll remember their experience with me forever (or until they finally all lose their fight with S.I.D.S).

Hold It In will be released via Ipecac Recordings on the 13th October 2014, more news to follow over the coming weeks.
