The Melvins Debut “Hideous Woman” Video

The Melvins, who wrapped up their latest European tour over the weekend, debut a video for “Hideous Woman” from their recently released album, Basses Loaded (Ipecac Recordings).

The video for the single Stereogum dubbed an “intense, off-kilter riffer” was directed by David Hall.

The 12-song album, which premiered via MLB.com, features six bass players: Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Redd Kross’ Steve McDonald, Butthole Surfers’ J.D. Pinkus, Big Business’ Jared Warren, Mr. Bungle/Fantomas’ Trevor Dunn (aka Melvins Lite) and Melvins’ drummer Dale Crover swapping the drum kit for bass in the Melvins 1983 iteration.

The Melvins return to U.S. highways this summer, launching a seven-week tour on Aug. 3 in Las Vegas. The touring line-up features Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Steve McDonald.
