Dale Crover (Melvins) Shares Single “Tougher,” Announces New Album

Dale Crover, named one of the greatest drummers of all time and dubbed the “Thunder King”, returns with his sophomore solo album, Rat-A-Tat-Tat! (Joyful Noise Recordings), dropping January 15, 2021. Along with news of the 12-song album’s forthcoming release, Dale and Joyful Noise are giving fans an early listen, releasing the single “Tougher.”

“Not only am I a drummer, I’m a professional ‘Geetar Wrastler’ as well, as you’ll hear in the opening of this song, ‘Tougher,’” explains Dale. “It’s co-written by myself and engineer/ musician Toshi Kasai, and features my bandmate from Altamont, Dan Southwick on bass. Lyrically it’s about someone trying to involve you in their drama, and how I’m not a fan of that. Enjoy!”
