Primus release first new song in 6 years

Hear 'The Seven' below

Primus have revealed ‘The Seven’, their first new song in six years, alongside info on their new album, ‘The Desaturating Seven’.

‘The Desaturating Seven’ is set for a September 29 release on ATO Records – it’ll be the group’s first album in six years, following 2011’s ‘Green Naugahyde’.

The album is based on a 1970 children’s book which frontman Les Claypool often reads to his kids, in which goblins steal all the colour out of the world,

“The dark imagery and beauty of the art struck me immediately and I thought, ‘This would make good fodder for a piece of music’,” explains Claypool in a press release. “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.”

Check out the album’s lead single ‘The Seven’ below.
