Melvins & Sleep’s Al Cisneros releasing collab EP, post teaser w/ Black Sabbath cover

Melvins Al Cisneros Sabbath

Melvins and Sleep/Om frontman Al Cisneros (who previously collaborated with Melvins’ Dale Crover in Shrinebuilder) have teamed up to release a collaborative 10″ EP called Sabbath. The Melvins posted a link to an eBay auction for one of the ten test pressings, and the description reads:

Up for auction is a rare Test Pressing for upcoming Amphetamine Reptile’s upcoming release of the Melvins Sabbath 10″.

2 tracks total with Al Cisneros of Sleep joining the Melvins. The record itself is basic black vinyl with simply “side A” printed on one side & “Melvins “Sabbath 1/10″ handwritten on the other. Comes in the plastic sleeve from Pirates Press with a sticker adhered to it with the Amphetamine Reptile catalog #, band name, title, pressing plant, country of manufacture & some barcodes.

The sleeve has the artwork of HAZE XXL & with 2 hand-pulled linocut prints that were printed, torn & mounted by HAZE himself. He has also written in pencil, the words MELVINS “SABBATH” on the front & TEST PRESSING 1/10 on the back.

Only 10 of these exist & this is #1 in the edition.

While it’s not clear if the name Sabbath implies this EP will feature Black Sabbath covers, The PRP points to a video of Melvins and Cisnero rehearsing a cover of “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath,” so it seems very likely. Watch that video below.

Melvins recently wrapped up a tour (see their tour diary), and Sleep — whose first album in 15+ years is out now — are hitting the road again in December.
