Melvins to star in cartoon


Melvins have revealed they’ll star in a cartoon.

The punk band say that two of their songs will be included in the as-yet-unnamed kids show and also confirm that the featured lineup will include an animated bassist.

Drummer Dale Crover says: “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 will release their album Basses Loaded on June 3. They’re currently touring North America with Napalm Death and Melt Banana, and will also headline Temples festival in Bristol in June.
