Dale Crover (Melvins) Premieres New Song “I’ll Never Say”

Melvins drummer Dale Crover has premiered a new song titled “I’ll Never Say.” This track is from his new album “Rat-A-Tat-Tat!,” which will be released on January 15. Crover told American Songwriter the following:

“I had the song done except for lyrics before I recorded it. I did guitar and drums first, then handed it over to Steven McDonald to play bass and I never tell Steven what to do, I just let him work his magic. My only request was he play his Hofner hollow body bass. We did vocals next, then added keyboards. Sort of the same process with Toshi [Kasai]. We’ll look for a sound that fits the mood, then I’ll let him come up with a part. I maybe have a little input here or there. Pretty simple instrumentation on this song.”

Dale Crover (Melvins) Premieres “I Can’t Help You There” Video

Melvins drummer Dale Crover has premiered a new video for his new song “I Can’t Help You There.” This track is from his new album “Rat-A-Tat-Tat!,” which will be released on January 15. Crover commented:

“I enlisted Toshi Kasai and Alicia DiGiovanni to help direct, film and edit. I gave them the basic ideas I had and they ran with them. Inspiration came from ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest,’ The Cramps’ 1978 performance at Napa State Mental Hospital, and the creepy face mask of LA Dodger Kiké Hernández.”

Dale Crover (Melvins) Premieres New Song “Tougher”

Melvins drummer Dale Crover has premiered a new song titled “Tougher.” This track is from his new album “Rat-A-Tat-Tat!,” which will be released on January 15. Crover commented:

“Not only am I a drummer, I’m a professional ‘Geetar Wrastler’ as well, as you’ll hear in the opening of this song, ‘Tougher‘. It’s co-written by myself and engineer/ musician Toshi Kasai, and features my bandmate from Altamont, Dan Southwick on bass. Lyrically it’s about someone trying to involve you in their drama, and how I’m not a fan of that. Enjoy!”
