“Don’t Forget To Breathe”, the new Ava Hazelmyer-directed video from experimental metal band Melvins, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s studio album, Pinkus Abortion Technician, which was released today (April 20th) via Ipecac Recordings.
The Melvins have also released “Stop Moving To Florida” and “Embrace the Rub” as singles for the upcoming LP. The record features both the Melvins’ regular bass player Steven McDonald (also of Redd Kross and Off!) and Jeff Pinkus of Butthole Surfers’ fame on bass, on every track of the record.
“We’re very excited to have a video for our song ‘Don’t Forget To Breathe’,” directed by the hyper-talented Ava Hazelmyer. Hopefully, there will be more collaborations with her in the future,” said vocalist and guitarist Buzz Osborne. “We can’t wait for people to hear Pinkus Abortion Technician and for them to see both of these killer bassists on our upcoming tours!”
“I like to make scenes devoid of context or overt meaning,” explained Hazelmyer. “I like taking everyday things and dropping them into an absurd setting. I like the idea of something being experienced without any preconceived notions or connections.”
You will definitely be getting a heavy dose of surrealism in the music video. Check the clip out below.
