Primus' Full Lobster Tale Of Woe Released

Primus have released the full video for "Tragedy's a' Comin'", the first clip off their new album Green Naugahyde.

The video, which premiered in a three-part series on IFC.com (part 1, part 2, part 3), was directed by Mark Kohr, who helmed Primus' classic videos for "Tommy the Cat" and "Jerry Was A Race Car Driver".

The video focuses on a lobster's impending demise, soon to be boiled and fed to members of the upper crust, serving as a metaphor for global impending doom. The clip also features Les Claypool in a lobster suit, acting out the last moments of the crustacean on the beach. When discussing the making of the video with IFC, Claypool remarked "I spent so many years dodging goofball bullets from doing the 'Wynona's Big Brown Beaver' video that I don't resist it anymore. I got to put on a giant lobster suit, and that doesn't happen every day." Watch it here.
