Rock band Melvins 1983 have released their new song, “The Great Good Place” and have announced their Valentine’s Day livestream special called “Divine Monkeyshines: Valentine’s Day Special”. The band has gone back to its 1983 lineup for the song and album which consists of Buzz Osbourne, Steven McDonald and Mike Dillard on drums, and Dale Crover on bass.
The release of “The Great Good Place” comes after the release of singles from the album like “I Fuck Around”, which is a cover and remake of the Beach Boys “I Get Around”, “Bouncing Rick”, “Caddy Daddy”, and “Brian, The Horse-Faced Goon”.
“The Great Good Place” begins upbeat with clear and clean playing of the drums. The vocals on the song come in and add a roughness to the song. Listen to the newest song below:
The band’s Valentine’s Day livestream event is a follow-up performance after their New Year’s Eve debut live-streaming performance. In a recent interview, the band’s drummer, Dale Crover shared his thoughts on the upcoming livestream: “…It’s like psychedelic. It doesn’t look like any of the other streams that I’ve seen before, so I think people will like it. It’s definitely different.” The livestream will consist of a performance from the band, behind the scene footage and interviews with the band members (Buzz Osbourne, Dale Crover and Steven McDonald). Tickets for the livestream are available here.
Their album, Working With God, is set to drop on February 26 and will be released via Ipecac Recordings. Preorder the album here.
