New Primus Album

#31564 2 years, 10 months ago
ATO Records and Prawn Songs are excited to announce that Primus will be releasing its first studio album in 11 years on September 13, 2011. Titled Green Naugahyde, the record was produced and engineered by Les Claypool in his personal studio, Rancho Relaxo, in Northern California, and features Claypool, long-time guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane.

Lane was in an early lineup of the band, and was also in Sausage, a 1994 reunion of the 1988 Primus lineup. Green Naugahyde expands on Primus' incomparable sound and also sees them bringing it into the next millennium. It is a cerebral and complex album that, like all of the band's output, is teeming with the band's signature blend of whimsy and underlying darkness.

Says Claypool, "If I were to look at all of our records, it seems like this is reminiscent of the early stuff. Obviously, with Jay there's a newness to it, but because he left the band right before we recorded our first record, his approach has an eerie harkening to the old Frizzle Fry days."

Like Primus' early output before they were international superstars, there was no earth-shattering catalyst behind Green Naugahyde other than the fact that all three of these musicians-and life-long collaborators who have worked together in various contexts-were getting the itch to experiment again. "There wasn't a lot of pre-thought to this as much as, 'Oh here we are, we should make a record,'" explains Claypool. "I've been playing with Jay quite a lot over the past 10 years and we have an intuitive bond, so for me he was a natural choice to be back in the mix," Claypool continues when asked how Lane came about rejoining the band after nearly two decades apart.

After dates at Bonnaroo and Red Rocks with the Flaming Lips, Primus will hit the road in September with a major fall tour in support of Green Naugahyde.

PRIMUS RAWKS MY FACE OFF
i heard that claypool once auditioned for metalica, after cliff burton died, and they turned him down, baiscally cause he was TOO GOOD! can you imagine, Metalica if they had never fired Dave Mustang and hired Les Claypool! that would have beeen a beast ofa band, not the bunch of sissy boys they have turned into.
