Pittsburgh Event

The Melvins Stream “Stop Moving To Florida”/Pittsburgh Show May 19

The Melvins, who recently announced the April 20 release of new album Pinkus Abortion Technician (via Ipecac Recordings) will feature two bass players: Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), share the album’s lead-off track, “Stop Moving To Florida” (http://smarturl.it/MelvinsPinkus).

The song is a medley of the James Gang’s “Stop” and Butthole Surfers’ “Moving To Florida,” which Osborne explains, “I wanted to do the song ‘Stop’ but I didn’t want to do all of it and I LOVE ‘Moving to Florida’ so ‘Stop Moving To Florida’ seemed perfect.” Pre-orders for the eight-song album are available now (http://smarturl.it/MelvinsPinkus) with digital pre-orders including an instant download of “Stop Moving To Florida.”

The Melvins have also announced a 10-week North American tour, kicking off on April 26 at the Casbah in San Diego. The trek will feature the Melvins as a four-piece with both Pinkus and McDonald joining Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover.
