NEW ALBUM! Alternative rock legends Primus have announced their first original studio album in six years, The Desaturating Seven, out September 29th. The first album to feature the classic Primus lineup of Les Claypool (vocals, bass), Larry LaLonde (guitar) and Tim Alexander (drums) since 1995’s Tales from the Punchbowl, The Desaturating Seven is inspired by the 1970’s children’s book “The Rainbow Goblins”. The book tells a story of seven goblins – one representing each color of the rainbow – who simultaneously pull all of the color out of the world.
Pre-order the album now on rainbow splatter vinyl, limited edition desaturated vinyl with colorless packaging, CD, or digital download. Or, choose the deluxe bundle – including a limited-run poster designed by Rueben Rude and autographed by the band, a copy of “The Rainbow Goblins” autographed by the band, an exclusive pre-order shirt and the album in the format of your choice.
“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.”
