Claypool Discusses Primus Break Up

(Gibson) Primus sure did take their sweet time between recording their latest album (2011's Green Naugahyde) and its predecessor (1999's Antipop). Now, frontman Les Claypool has revealed that the band actually broke up for a while during that interlude, although they didn't tell anyone.

Claypool told Spinner that Primus broke up "for about three years. Then we came back and did the nostalgia thing, in '03, with a pretty big tour. And then in 2006 we did another round. But those tours, they were just they were what they were.

"We're kind of under-the-radar guys. We've got to go out and work. So for us to stop like we did we weren't even talking. We definitely broke up. We broke up but we didn't want to tell everybody, so we said 'Well, we're on hiatus.'" more on this story
