Mar. 13, Torrance, Calif. — Scion A/V has partnered with the Melvins for an EP titled Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees, a five-song collection that marks the band’s first original material since their 2010 album The Bride Screamed Murder.   The release is available today as a free download via Scion A/V’s website (http://scionav.com/index#!collection/917/The-Melvins—The-Bulls–The-Bees).
A video for “The War on Wisdom,” which features a re-enacted, early incarnation of the Melvins debuts today on Brooklyn Vegan’s website (www.brooklynvegan.com).
The Melvins formed in 1983, kicking off what would be a seismic shift in heavy music and focusing the epicenter of modern music firmly on the Pacific Northwest for the next decade plus.  The band blended punk, metal, hard rock to create a new subgenre that has been tagged with a variety of labels including sludge, grunge and doom and won a cult of fans that have yet to waiver some twenty-nine years into the band’s career.  Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover have been the band’s constants (Crover joined in 1984) with Big Business’ Jared Warren and Coady Willis joining the band in 2006 for (A) Senile Animal.
“The Melvins have remained such a consistent presence in heavy music,” says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion.  “It’s an honor to have them create an original release for Scion A/V.”
Osborne described Scion A/V Presents: The Bulls & The Bees as “amazing in its noisy calm intensity.”  The physical release will be available at Scion Partners retail stores.  For more information about the Scion Partner program and to find retail stores, visit www.scionav.com/partners.
