“This record will give people a peak into the kind of things that influence us musically. We REALLY like all of these songs along with the bands who actually wrote this stuff because first and foremost we are HUGE music fans.” – Buzz Osborne
And with these words, The Melvins have announced that they will be releasing a covers album entitled Everybody Loves Sausages, which will come out Apr. 30th via Ipecac Records. The album will feature tracks from artists such as Venom, Queen, David Bowie, and many more.
Although the album is being billed as a release of the proper Melvins lineup (Osborne, Dale Crover, Jared Warren, Coady Willis), some of the songs were recorded by the “Melvins Lite” line up (Osborne, Crover, Trevor Dunn): “Female Trouble”, “Timothy Leary Lives” and “Romance By Tales Of Terror”.
