Melvins: Allergic To Food

Melvins unveil Allergic to Food, their second track from the upcoming album, Tarantula Heart, set to release on April 19th, 2024, via Ipecac Recordings. Demonstrating their enduring skill and the persistent relevance of their art, the band delivers yet another lively and biting offering.

The way we approached Tarantula Heart was different than any other Melvins’ album,” explains Buzz Osborne. “I had Dale and Roy Mayorga come in and play along with Steven and I to some riffs, then I took those sessions and figured out what parts would work and wrote new music to fit. This isn’t a studio approach we’ve ever taken. Usually we have the songs written BEFORE we start recording!

The majority of Tarantula Heart has dual drum parts,” adds long-time Melvins drummer Dale Crover. “Roy is an amazing drummer. We would discuss what we would do pattern wise, then we’d just go for it. Improvising riffs and trading off on drum fills.
