Primus Preview New Album

(Gibson) Primus haven't released a new studio album in 11 years, which is something that frontman/bassist Les Claypool says was deliberate. "Primus had hit the creative wall by the end of the '90s and Primus needed to sit," he told Spin. "Like a good compost, we needed to ferment and turn the manure and garbage into fine, nitrogen rich dirt."

Fans can hear exactly how the trio fermented during the decade on Primus' new album, Green Naugahyde, due September 13. The band, which features Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane, have revealed a new song, "Tragedy's A-Comin'," which you can hear here.

Of the new song, Claypool says: "Lyrically, this is me focusing on eventual demise or at least the notion that big rain is coming and at some point I'm going to get pretty [expletive] wet. Who says lemmings can't dance as they go over the cliff?" more on this story
