Melvins Detail ‘A Walk With Love and Death’ Double Album

Watch an ominous trailer for the project

Melvins have announced a new double album via Ipecac Recordings. Dubbed A Walk With Love and Death, it will include the score to a short film of the same name that the band produced, Pitchfork reports.

The two-part set will be released via CD, vinyl and digitally. It includes Death, which is a full LP, and Love, which comprises the film score for the Jesse Nieminen-directed short film. A release date has not been set for the film, but Ipecac unveiled a trippy, ominous trailer.

“This was a huge undertaking,” frontman Buzz Osborne wrote in the trailer’s accompanying post. “All three things: the album, the soundtrack and the film are benchmarks for us.”

Self-produced by the band with engineer Toshi Kasai, A Walk With Love and Death will feature guest Le Butcherettes’ Teri Gender Bender, who’s also a member of Osborne and drummer Dale Crover’s supergroup Crystal Fairy. Other guests include Pixies’ Joey Santiago and That Dog’s Anna Waronker.

A Walk With Love and Death is one giant, dark, moody, psychotic head trip! Not for the faint of heart,” Crover added in the trailer post. “You’ll sleep with the lights on after listening.”

The Melvins’ first-ever double album will be released on July 7th.
