Dumb Numbers and The Melvins have joined forces for a three-song single, dubbed the Broken Pipe EP out April 29th, 2022, from Joyful Noise Recordings. It will arrive via a sawblade-shaped, limited-edition vinyl 12-inch. The title track is also streaming now.

The collection, which is not the first time the musicians have partnered together (see their 2015 JNR split series), also finds The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow lending his vocals to the track, “So-Called Solid Objects,” and longtime Melvins’ production partner, Toshi Kasai, remixing the song “Harvel.”

Dumb Numbers’ Adam Harding comments:

I’m severely honoured to work with Buzz and Dale on this release. I actually wrote one of the songs in 1997 after seeing the Melvins play in my hometown of Geelong, Australia. I never dreamed that 20 years later I would get to record it with them.
