Working With God is the second release from the 1983 iteration of the band, which features Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and original drummer Mike Dillard. The trio’s previous release was the 2013 album, Tres Cabrones.
The band preview Working With God with a pair of singles: ‘I Fuck Around’ (a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys’ ‘I Get Around’), and ‘Bouncing Rick’, a song about Buzz Osborne and Mike Dillard’s junior high biology teacher. The pair of songs can be heard here.

Commenting on ‘I Fuck Around’, Osborne said: “It’s reflective of our 8th grade sense of humour, which we’ve never grown out of. We hope Brian Wilson doesn’t get mad.”

digital, CD & standard black vinyl. Hostile Ambient Takeover, which sees its first ever vinyl release, is available on pink vinyl, while Gluey Porch Treatments is available on lime green vinyl.
