Rock bands Melvins and Flipper have teamed up for a brand new collaborative track. The song is titled “Hot Fish” and features the talents of both of the groups members. The song is not the only thing the two bands have been working on, as “Hot Fish” is part of an upcoming EP of the same name. Melvins and Flipper are both long standing members of the underground grunge music scene, with both bands having perfected their sounds over the past few decades. With both of these groups working together, the upcoming Hot Fish EP is sure to be a great project.
This collaboration is not the only thing Melvins have been up to in recent months, with the band recently making a few announcements regarding their plans for the rest of 2019. Last month, Third Man Records revealed that they would be releasing reissues of a few of Melvins oldest albums. This is the first time these records will be available on vinyl in years. In addition the old records being rereleased, Melvins also announced they would be going on a fall tour with the band Redd Kross. The two acts will be touring the US starting this September in San Diego, with the tour concluding in November in Las Vegas.
Flipper has also been busy lately, as the band is currently in the middle of a 40th anniversary tour. The group began the tour earlier this year in April and plan on continuing through the end of July. So far Flipper has already performed in major cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas; the group’s next show is set for tomorrow night in Portland. Other notable cities that Flipper is planning on performing at later in the tour include Seattle, Chicago and San Francisco.
Even in the midst of all of the shows both groups are playing, they managed to set aside enough time to create a brand new project for fans. The Hot Fish EP is going to contain four songs, including the recently released title track, and be released via Amphetamine Reptile Records. The project is due to be released this upcoming Sunday on June 9, but until then fans can check out the “Hot Fish” single below.
