Listen to new track from Crystal Fairy ‘Chiseler’

By on 14 December 2016

Crystal Fairy features Le Butcherettes’ Teri Gender Bender, the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover with At The Drive-In’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. ‘Chiseler’ is the second track to be released from the band’s eponymous debut album out 24 February 2017 on Ipecac Recordings.

Teri Gender Bender said:

“It was so much fun to write this song with these guys. It literally just came out like a flying saucer; we recorded everything in one day. It was so impressive to see how well we all experiment with one another.”

Crystal Fairy will play their first live dates in February, with the band announcing a week of intimate club shows in the US. Tickets are available on Friday, December 16 2016.

February 21 Santa Ana, CA The Observatory Constellation Room

February 25 San Francisco, CA Slim’s

Drummer Dale Crover explained:

“When the Melvins toured with Le Butcherettes, Teri would come out at the end of the set and do ‘Rebel Girl’ with us. It was almost always the highlight of the show! From doing that, we knew there was some chemistry between us that was worth exploring. We became close friends with both Teri and Omar on the tour and came up with the idea of starting a new band with them.”

Teri Gender Bender continues:

“Omar caught up with us on the Melvins’ tour because he is an admirer. Through the travels, the Melvins and Omar connected as well. Sometimes, Omar and I would fantasise loudly of hopefully being able to form a power together. Before we knew it, we were writing music in the studio (both in El Paso and L.A.) and birthed a magical little gem that I am extremely proud to be a part of.”

Singer/guitar player Buzz Osborne finished with:

“The Melvins have had many different line-ups, and we’ll continue to mix things up but with Crystal Fairy, working with Teri and Omar, I knew this was something different and deserved to have its own identity.”
