Carnivalesque Goblin Rock On Clear with Rainbow Splatter Vinyl LP!

Primus returns with their first new album of original music since 2011's Green Naugahyde in what can only be described as GOBLIN ROCK!

Primus adapted an obscure children's book into a wild musical opus with their ninth LP, The Desaturating Seven, via ATO Records.

"The experimental rock trio tease the record's carnivalesque atmosphere with lead single "The Seven," an ever-mutating epic filled with marching rhythms, jarring tempo shifts and a prog-funk groove (cleverly set in 7/8) that recalls early Eighties King Crimson.

""It definitely has that Discipline feel," bassist-singer Les Claypool tells Rolling Stone, referencing King Crimson's 1981 LP. "But it's also very reminiscent of [Primus' 1991 track] 'Jerry Was a Racecar Driver,' that tapping and the syncopated bit with me and [guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde]. But all that probably comes from the Crimson influence as well because Crimson was definitely a big influence on the three of us.

"The Desaturating Seven is the band's first studio album of original material since 2011's Green Naugahyde – and their first with LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander since 1995's Tales From the Punchbowl. The LP is based on Italian writer and illustrator Ul de Rico's trippy 1978 book, The Rainbow Goblins, which Claypool's wife introduced him to "many, many years ago." The couple, struck by de Rico's "vibrant and intense and eerie and somewhat creepy" artwork, used to read the book to their children – and Claypool earmarked the title for a potential musical project..."
