The Melvins release 'Chicken Switch,' a 15-song remix CD on Ipecac, Sept. 29

The Melvins will release 'Chicken Switch,' a 15-song remix CD with a twist, on Sept. 29 via Ipecac Recordings. Unlike usual remix cds where the remixer is given a single track to work with, for 'Chicken Switch' each remixer was given a full album to work with and pull from to create their track (and in some cases, more than one full album was used as source material). The song names were also newly selected by their remixer.
