Sounds fun!

Sounds fun!

Primus just announced a brand new album. It will be their first album of original material since 1995's  Tales From The Punchbowl to feature the "classic" lineup of  Les Claypool (vocals, bass), Larry LaLonde (guitar) and Tim Alexander (drums).

The album, The Desaturating Seven will be released September 29th on ATO Records. The album is based on a 1970s children's book that Claypool reads to his kids.

“Many years ago when my children were little kidlets scurrying around the place wreaking havoc and whatnot till it was time for bed and book time, my wife turned them on to a book called “The Rainbow Goblins” by Ul De Rico,” Claypool explained. “The dark imagery and beauty of the art struck me immediately and I thought, ‘this would make good fodder for a piece of music.’ The use of color and darkness both in the paintings and the writing was compelling and now, near two decades later, the metaphor of greed, gluttony and deceit vs unity of the masses is eerily relevant. I brought the notion to the Primus guys and they were all for it. Plus, I figured it's about time someone brought ‘Goblin Rock’ back to the fold.”
