Primus have released a stream of their new track The Scheme.
It’s the latest material from bassist and vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander’s new album The Desaturating Seven, which will arrive on September 29 via ATO Records.
It follows a trippy lyric video for The Seven which arrived last month.
Speaking about the follow-up to 2014’s Primus And The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble, Claypool tells Billboard: “This record hearkens back to our prog roots – Rush, Yes, King Crimson – all those things.
“It’s a little heavier than the last record, more intricate than anything we’ve done in a while.”
Primus will head out on the road again from next month. Find further details below.
