Melvins have released a video for their track Hideous Woman.

The song features on their latest album Basses Loaded which launched earlier this month via Ipecac Recordings.

The record features six bass players, with mainman Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover joined by Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Redd Kross’ Steve McDonald, Butthole Surfers’ JD Pinkus, Big Business’ Jared Warren and Mr Bungle and Fantomas man Trevor Dunn.

In April, the band confirmed they’d star in an un-named cartoon which will also feature their music.

Crover said: “Two of our songs are going to be included in a cartoon show – a kids cartoon show. Nobody knows that yet. I don’t know if I can say what they are but it’s pretty cool.

“We saw the finished version and it’s really great. It’s not just a cameo – we’re actually in the whole show. It’s a cool cartoon that kids and adults will both enjoy.”

Melvins wrapped up a North American tour with Napalm Death in May and will head out on the road across the US in August.
