The Melvins have premiered their take on “Take Me Out to the Ballgame, off of their upcoming Basses Loaded, at Pitchfork. The group’s rendition of the classic baseball anthem is quirky, naturally, featuring 8-bit electronic sounds and rousing group vocals. The track can be streamed at this location now. Other tracks from their upcoming album can be streamed here.
Basses Loaded will be released on June 3 via Ipecac.
Swedish melodic death metal outfit October Tide have premiered a new track from their upcoming full-length, Winged Waltz, which is due out on April 22 via Agonia Records. The new track happens to be the album’s opening movement, the seven-minute “Swarm”. The track begins with sinister melodies before launching into lengthy processions of melancholic yet melodious death that will drag listeners down into a pit of despair. Check out the tune after the break.
Pre-order Winged Waltz here.
