Primus Reveal Details For New Album “The Desaturating Seven”, Stream New Song “The Seven”

Primus have revealed the details for their new album “The Desaturating Seven,” which is set to be released on September 29. Les Claypool said the following about the effort, which was inspired by a book called “The Rainbow Goblins”:

“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. 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.”
