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


first_imgBY IME SORNITO and RUBY SILUBRICO The eight other new COVID-positive cases recorded yesterday were the following: * 38-year-old male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 161), OFW Here’s the breakdown of the 164 cases – Aklan, six; Antique, 14; Capiz, six; Guimaras, zero; Iloilo province, 23; Negros Occidental, three; Bacolod City, 11; Iloilo City, 20; and Repatriates, 81. * 30-year-old male from Hinigaran, Negros Occidental (Patient No. 158), LSI Of the 164 cases in the region, 106 already recovered while 11 died, said Te, leaving the number of active cases at 47 as of yesterday. ILOILO City – The Western Visayas Medical Center sub-national laboratory here and the Teresita Jalandoni Provincial Hospital Molecular Laboratory in Silay City, Negros Occidental recorded a combined 10 new cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) yesterday, one of them a policeman under the Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO). * 38-year-old female from Bacolod City (Patient 157), locally stranded individual (LSI) The COVID-positive policeman, meanwhile, was the third such case in the ICPO. He was a 38-year-old male. A native of San Carlos City, Pangasinan, he arrived here early this week only. The two other COVID-positive ICPO cops were a 32-year-old male from La Paz district and a 22-year-old male from Lambunao, Iloilo. * 44-year-old male from Oton, Iloilo (Patient No. 163), OFW This was the second highest number of cases detected in a day in the region; the first was on May 6 when 11 cases were recorded, according to the Department of Health (DOH) Region 6. Another positive case detected yesterday was a 34-year-old male driver from Cebu City. DOH-6 described him as a “transient locally stranded individual.” He and the policeman were thus not included by DOH-6 in the total tally of confirmed COVID-19 cases of the region – now at 164. * 40-year-old male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 160), OFW These droplets also land on objects and surfaces around the person. Other people then catch COVID-19 by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth. * 25-year-old male from Miag-ao (Patient No. 164), OFW All the new cases were asymptomatic, said Te. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell./PN Te reminded Western Visayans to observe minimum public health safety protocols – the wearing of facemask, observing physical distancing and handwashing. She said COVID-19 can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth which are spread when an infected person coughs or exhales. * 37-year-old male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 159), repatriated overseas Filipino worker (OFW) The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. But both are now under quarantine, according to Dr. Marie Jocelyn Te, DOH-6’s medical coordinator for emerging and reemerging infectious diseases. * 35-year-old-male from Bacolod City (Patient No. 162), OFWlast_img read more
