Damn, it seems like a long time since I was rocking “John The Fisherman” on Guitar Hero and even longer since “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver” was on the radio. Alas, time marches on and along with that, comes a brand spanking new Primus album next month. The San Francisco trio have been on an eleven year hiatus that bassist and frontman Les Claypool comparest to a compost pile: “Like a good compost, we needed to ferment and turn the manure and garbage into fine, nitrogen rich dirt.”

“Tragedy’s A’Comin” is now streaming online and “Green Naugahyde” is due out September 13th on his own label, Prawn Song. “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 fucking wet,” Claypool says. “Who says lemmings can’t dance as they go over the cliff?” Check out the song here.

The band will also be heading out on tour next month as well. Click here for tour dates.
