The Bulls & the Bees is an EP by American rock band the Melvins, released on 13 March 2012 through Scion A/V for free download.[1] It was also released as a free CD for their May 2012 tour with Unsane and released as a 10" vinyl later that year for the 51/51 tour, limited to 500 copies. A music video was also produced by Scion A/V for "The War On Wisdom".[2]

On 2 June 2015, an expanded CD also containing the Electroretard album was released on Ipecac Recordings. A 2LP vinyl edition was planned but ultimately never came to fruition.

The Bulls & The Bees attained largely positive reception at the time of release. Metal Assault would award the album a 9/10, noting it as another "feather in the cap" for the Melvins' lengthy career.[3] Numerous publications would review the EP as part of the CD reissue with Electroretard, such as Smells Like Infinite Sadness,[4] The Sludgelord,[5] MXDWN[6] and Pop Dose.[7]
