Subscribe to on

Primus have released their track “The Scheme” from upcoming album The Desaturating Seven, which you can listen to above. they had previously released “The Seven.”

The album arrives on Sept. 29 via ATO. The follow-up to 2014’s Primus & the Chocolate Factory With the Fungi Ensemble is the first to feature the classic band lineup of Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde and Tim Alexander since Tales From the Punchbowl in 1995.

The Desaturating Seven was inspired by a children’s book by Ul De Rico, which tells the story of seven creatures who remove color from the world. Claypool recently explained, “Many years ago, when my children were little kidlets scurrying around the place wreaking havoc and whatnot until it was time for bed and book time, my wife turned them on to The Rainbow Goblins.

“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 versus the 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.”

Primus recently completed a U.S. tour with Clutch and they’re preparing for another run of dates under the banner “Ambushing the Storm,” which commences on Oct. 20 and ends on Dec. 30. The Desaturating Seven is available for pre-order via the band’s website, with limited-edition versions including colored vinyl and a pack that includes the LP, a copy of the book, shirt and poster.
