Melvins Lite is an additional incarnation of the Melvins.  The line-up is Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas & Tomahawk).  Melvins Lite’s debut release is “Freak Puke,” available June 5 via Ipecac Recordings.  “The Melvins have a long history of mixing up our line-ups and I think that’s what has kept us relevant for so long,” explains Osborne.  “Consider the Freak Puke record the fifth side of the four-sided Melvins triangle.”
