Melvins' Buzz Osborne Readies New Solo Album 'Gift of Sacrifice'

Osborne will release new album Gift of Sacrifice on May 15 through Ipecac Recordings. The nine-song set was recorded alongside Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, who will also join Osborne on an eight-week North American tour in support of the album.
