Never a band to think inside the box, Melvins will release Chicken Switch, a remix album with some intereting characteristics via Ipecac. If that wasn’t enough, King Buzzo, Dale Crover and the crew will also be hitting the road for some shows beginning in August.

Chicken Switch
Chicken Switch is an interestingly unique animal because, where the normal practice is to give a remixer a single track to play with, here they’re given an entire album (more in some cases) from which to cull a single remix cut.

The tracklisting along with the remixers involved are as follows:

Washmachine Sk8tronics – Eye Yamatsuka
Emperor Twaddle Reemix – Christoph Heeman
She Chokes Her Dying Breadn and Does It In my Face – V/VM
AAHHH… – John Duncan
Linksh änder – Matmos
EggNog Trilogy i) She’s Ivanhoe ii) Cancer iii) Inebriated – Lee Ranaldo
Prick Concrete/Revolution M – David Scott Stone
Queen (Electroclash Remix) – Panaceea
The Silky Apple Butter of Youth – Sunroof!
4th Floor Hellcopter – Kawabata Makoto
disp_tx_skel_mach_murx – Farmersmanual
Overgoat – Void Manes
Over from Under the Dog, Girl & Boy Treatment – RLW
Hard Revenge Milly Bloody Battle VS. The Melvins Ozmatized Gore Police (Feat. Cardopusher of the Five Deadly Venoms) – Speedranch
