Listen to ‘Chiseler’ from Crystal Fairy, New Supergroup Featuring Members of Melvins, At the Drive In, Le Butcherettes
Crystal Fairy, the new group featuring Le Butcherettes’ Teri Gender Bender, the Melvins’ Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover, and At the Drive-In’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, has debuted its second single, “Chiseler,” in advance of their upcoming debut LP.
The band’s self-titled full-length effort is expected to arrive Feb. 24, and is available to pre-order; fans who purchase now get advance digital downloads of “Chiseler” (which you can stream below) and the previously released “Drugs on the Bus,” while various physical packages and formats are also available through Crystal Fairy’s official website.
“It was so much fun to write this song with these guys,” said Gender Bender in a press release announcing the arrival of “Chiseler.” “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.”
Fans will get a chance to see that experimentation firsthand when Crystal Fairy hit the road for a short tour in early 2017. Five dates are currently on the schedule, all of which will see the group taking a handful of “intimate club outings” in Southern California. When and where they’ll return to the stage together remains to be seen; Rodriguez-Lopez is booked for a tour with At the Drive-In the following month, and they just released their own new single, “Governed by Contagions.”
Check out the complete Crystal Fairy itinerary, set to begin Feb. 21 in Santa Ana and conclude four days later in San Francisco, below; tickets will go on sale Dec. 16 at 10AM Pacific.
