Primus: new album "The Desaturating Seven" 09/29 , stream "The Seven"

Experimental avant-funk metal trio Primus will release their new album The Desaturating Seven on September 29. It's their first album of original music since 2011. It was inspired by the children's book The Rainbow Goblins by Ul De Rico, Bass player Les Claypool:

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

Stream the lead single The Seven. The Claypool, LaLonde and Alexander line-up last recorded an album over two decades ago, when they released Tales From the Punchbowl in 1995.
