Primus to release "The Desaturating Seven" in September

Posted by AP on 31/07/17

Primus will release their ninth studio album, entitled "The Desaturating Seven", via ATO Records on September 29th. The record is inspired by Ul De Rico's book "The Rainbow Goblins", which frontman Les Claypool would read to his children when they were young:

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.
