In October, The Melvins will release their new album, Hold It In. Singer Buzz Osbourne said of the album in a press release, "Hold It In is a refreshing piece of fiction in a boring world of fact and bullsh*t."
Speaking to Triple J, Danny Brown talked about his collaboration with the enigmatic Avalanches and says it is going to blow people away. Brown said, "I did one song with them a while ago and it was cool. They felt like it was OK and I felt like it was OK. But then we actually got in the studio and made a record and I swear the record we made is incredible. 'Frank Sinatra' was the first one we did. That was cool but the one we did after that... I swear, if we put that out, it'll change the world. I heard it that first night and that was the only time I heard it. I wanna hear it again!"No word yet as to when this long awaited Avalanches album will arrive.

The "classic" line-up of Primus, aka the ones that crafted Sailing the Seas of Cheese, will release a Willy Wonka tribute album. Singer Les Claypool says of the album, "The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,' says Claypool. I think like a good portion of the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie - the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit...twisted them up a lot." Take a look at the cover below:
