The Melvins surprise released their new album Bad Mood Rising on September 30, 2022. No pre-hype or announcements. No early singles either.
Recently, we caught up with heavy-hitting drummer, Dale Crover of the Melvins, and more recently, Red Kross. Among other things, we touch on how the Melvins are kicking off 2022, the band’s current jaunt, the Industrial Strength Tour, which they are co-headlining with Ministry, and Corrosion of Conformity, their newest EP, the release date for their upcoming full-length album, the thirtieth anniversary of seminal drone masterpiece, Lysol, the band’s years on Atlantic Records, and a whole lot more.
