first_imgPrimus recently announced a new album The Desaturating Seven, due out September 29th via ATO Records. The new record marks the first since the band’s 2014 Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, the first original material since 2011’s Green Naugahyde, and their ninth LP together. Today, they release their second single, “The Scheme.”“This record hearkens back to our prog roots — Rush, Yes, [King] Crimson, all those things,” bassist and frontman Les Claypool tells Billboard. “It’s a little heavier than the last record, more intricate than anything we’ve done in a while.” Listen to the new track below:The inspiration for The Desaturating Seven comes from a 1978 children’s book, The Rainbow Goblins. The book’s “vibrant and intense and eerie and somewhat creepy” artwork impressed Claypool (while reading it to his children) to the point of making it into music. “I remember being incredibly impressed with the artwork and the storyline and the content and the message, and I thought, ‘Wow, this would make a great piece of music,’” Claypool recently told Rolling Stone. “As I’m getting older, I’m realizing I need to start knocking some of these things off my list. So we did the Willy Wonka soundtrack a couple years back, and this was a project I wanted to do.”He continues, “I would look at the artwork and read the lyrics, and it’s very difficult to sing about goblins and rainbows and not have it come off being a little cornball…So I was tiptoeing the line of not necessarily being literal, but referring to elements of the story and using it more as a metaphor, when I could.”Much like their Primus & The Chocolate Factory tour, Primus will reincarnate the book’s rainbow imagery on their upcoming tour, which will begin October 20 in San Antonio and extend through November 11 in Miami. The show will consist of two sets: the first set will sift through their entire catalog, and the second will play through The Desaturating Seven in its entirety. The album’s vinyl edition will also be produced in “seven-color green splatter format.”Listen to the previously released “The Seven” track below:Primus – The Desaturating Seven Track List1. “The Valley”2. “The Seven”3. “The Trek”4. “The Scheme”5. “The Dream”6. “The Storm”7. “The Ends?”Primus “The Desaturating Seven” Tour DatesOctober 20 – San Antonio, TX @ Sunken GardensOctober 21 – Houston, TX @ White Oak LawnOctober 22 – Austin, TX @ ACL LiveOctober 24 – Nashville, TN @ War MemorialOctober 27 – Albany, NY @ Palace TheaterOctober 29 – Port Chester, NY @ Capitol TheaterOctober 31 – Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn SteelNovember 2 – Akron, OH @ Goodyear TheaterNovember 3 – Cincinnati, OH @ The Taft TheaterNovember 4 – Louisville, KY @ Palace TheaterNovember 5 – St. Louis, MO @ Peabody TheaterNovember 7 – Knoxville, TN @ Tennessee TheaterNovember 9 – Atlanta, GA @ TabernacleNovember 10 – Orlando, FL @ Hard Rock HotelNovember 11 – Miami, FL @ Fillmore MiamiNovember 13 – New Orleans, LA @ Civic TheatreDecember 29, 30 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Wilternlast_img read more
