Dale Crover of the Melvins premiers new video ‘Big ‘Uns’
Melvins' drummer Dale Crover has released a video for "Big Uns" from his recently released solo debut album, The Fickle Finger of Fate.
The video was directed by Adam Harding (videos for Warpaint, Best Coast) who also shot Crover's clip for "Bad Move:"
Crover is currently on a European tour, pulling double duty with the Melvins and Redd Kross (Crover plays drums in both bands) before heading to Australia. Dates are below.
Rolling Stone recently spoke with Crover about the new album, describing The Fickle Finger of Fate as a “no traps-bashing chops-feast, instead showcasing a melodic sensibility weaned on Sixties pop and Seventies arena rock, with no shortage of wild effects.”
The Fickle Finger of Fate was co-produced by Crover and Kasai. Crover played the bulk of the instruments on the collection (guitar, keyboards, drums) as well as vocals. Guests include Redd Kross’ Steven McDonald, Dan Southwick (Altamont) and Crover’s 11-year-old daughter Scarlett who assists with violin, percussion and vocals.
