Primus Working on First Album in 11 Years (Top Story)

Primus Working on First Album in 11 Years was a top story in September. Here it is again as we recap 2010: (Gibson) Primus is "accumulating material on a daily basis" for a new album, according to an interview with bassist/frontman Les Claypool on Billboard.com. The release will be the group's first album since 1999's Antipop and the first new material of any sort since 2003.

"Right now it's throwing pasta at the wall and seeing which noodles are sticking, recording musical ideas from sound checks and whatnot, even live shows," Claypool said. "We've been branching off on various tangents, and I have notebooks full of various writings. And now with the advent of the iPhone I've got my little recorder and can record things as I'm driving down the street, at a whim."

To make the new album, Claypool is working with some "new old blood." Jay Lane was the band's drummer in 1988, but left before Primus released their debut album, Frizzle Fry. Lane rejoined Claypool and guitarist Larry LaLonde when the group ended a four-year hiatus. Claypool said Lane will definitely have an effect on the new album. - more on this story
