The Claypool Lennon Delirium have released an animated video for their track Blood And Rockets.

The song – Blood And Rockets - Movement I, Saga Of Jack Parsons - Movement II, Too The Moon to give it its full name – will feature on the duo of Les Claypool and Sean Lennon’s new album South Of Reality, which will launch on February 22 through ATO Records.

The Rich Ragsdale-created psychedelic video features grinning demons, smiling planets, shooting stars, talking stone heads, flying saucers, a giant demonic goat and an appearance from occultist Aleister Crowley.

A statement on the video reads: "Grab your goggles and a month's supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock'n'roll rocket ship, and frankly you may never come back!"

Speaking previously about his partnership with Claypool, Lennon told Rolling Stone: “We are great friends indeed, and I guess I’m not nervous in quite the same way as I was in the beginning, but I still make sure to do as much preparation as possible.

“Ideas always come quick for us, and I think that’s why we like working together. But playing with Les is like knowing you’re gonna be playing tennis with Rafael Nadal – it makes you wanna brush up on a few things before you get on the court.”
