Primus Announce New ‘Conspiranoid’ EP, Share Opening Track ‘Conspiranoia’

Primus have announced a new 3-song EP, Conspiranoid, to be released on April 22 via ATO Records. The album’s vinyl release is set for August 5.

The rock band announced the album with the release of its epic, 11-minute opening track, “Conspiranoia.”

“I’d been itching to record an opus–basically a long, winding, bastard of a song, reminiscent of some of the compositions I cut my teeth (or ears) on, in my music-hungry adolescence,” Primus bassist/vocalist Les Claypool told Consequence.

He added, “‘Conspiranoia’ was sprouted from a seed I had planted in my notebook a year or so ago–a few lines commenting on the mental state of the contemporary world.”

The band, also composed of guitarist Larry “Ler” LaLonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander, is gearing up for their 64-date world tour, “A Tribute To Kings,” paying homage to prog-rock legends Rush.
