Melvins will reinterpret their own catalog and showcase some new covers on the grunge giant’s massive new Five Legged Dog, a 36-track LP that doubles as the group’s first-ever acoustic album.

“I knew I wanted to do something ridiculously big. Thirty-six songs reimagined by us acoustically is certainly ridiculous but it works! The magic of the songs is still there regardless of it being acoustic,” Buzz Osbourne said in a statement of the pandemic-recorded album.

“Since we weren’t touring we had the time to do something of this size. I’m very excited about this record. Dale [Crover] and Steven [McDonald] did a fantastic job on this. I think it’s a very special record. I can’t think of anyone else who’s done something like this.”

Five Legged Dog boasts acoustic takes on tracks from throughout the Melvins’ enormous discography — from 1987’s Gluey Porch Treatments to 2017’s A Walk With Love & Death — as well as cuts from Crover’s solo album, non-LP songs, and covers both previously recorded and attempted for the first time, like the Rolling Stones’ “Sway,” Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talking” (sung here by Butthole Surfers’ Jeff Pinkus), and Brainiac’s “Flypaper.”

Ahead of Five Legged Dog’s October 15th release via Ipecac Recordings, Melvins have shared their new rendition of “Night Goat,” a standout from their 1993 LP Houdini; the acoustic version strips off the original song’s fuzz and sludge while still capturing its grungy intensity.

Crover added in a statement: “They said it couldn’t be done! Actually, they didn’t say that, but the facts remain. We’ve taken some 30-plus songs that span our entire career and given them the acoustic treatment. There are also some fun cover songs, of course. We’ve covered songs by the Turtles and Brainiac!  I think people will be surprised that we can do an acoustic version of a song like ‘Night Goat’ without losing any of the heaviness. We also really worked hard on vocal arrangements. People are going to freak out!”

Five Legged Dog will be available to preorder Thursday, July 22nd in a variety of formats, including digitally and two-CD (both out October 15th) and four-LP colored vinyl that will arrive on January 28th.

Wow this is a hell of a lot of songs. Thank heavens we'll get a studio version of "Sway." And holy snot nozzles! What will their Brainiac cover sound like? That's just one of three cover songs I have no recollection of the Melvins ever attempting.

Also - "Bad Move" - First time they've taken one out of Dale's catalog, right?

Also, hopefully this signals these Honky and Bootlicker tracks will return to the live set.

In other news, my Slithering Slaughter CD is now redundant.

Be glad you're not in Australia then....

Bandcamp shipping $48
Blixt shipping $48
Ipecac (Shopify) shipping $67

Seeing as this doesn't look like a limited edition I'll probably just wait and get it locally

No sounds like a full drum kit to my ears, oddly enough.

To me acoustic guitar & bass doesn't sit well with drums I would've preferred this done solo by Buzz like his first solo album which was great, I didn't like his second solo album with all the added stuff.
