Melvins Unveil Comedic Video for ‘The War on Wisdom’ + Release Free EP
The Melvins have just released ‘The Bulls and the Bees’ EP,’ which is available for free downloading courtesy of Scion A/V. The band has also made a new music video for ‘The War on Wisdom,’ which comedically depicts the group as little kids jamming out and retaining those famous Melvins hairdos.
After a legendary 29-year career, Melvins prove with ‘The Bulls and the Bees’ that they haven’t missed a step or lost their edge in the least. Their brand of alternative sludge rock is very present in the new EP and backs up the group’s status as living legends. In fact, ‘The Bulls and the Bees’ doesn’t feel like an EP at all, more so giving the listener the experience of a full-length album.
The new video for ‘The War on Wisdom’ is also essential for any Melvins fan. The hilarious clip depicts the four-piece lineup as little kids jamming away in their garage while tactfully planning a school shooting with Super Soakers. The preteen Melvins in camouflage take on the adult establishment in their vengeful plot to moisten all teachers who stand in their way.
Along with the free ‘Bulls and the Bees’ EP, the Melvins are set to release the full-length ‘Freak Puke’ on June 5 and will be touring the U.S. beginning April 11.
