Primus Share Three-Song EP ‘Conspiranoid’, First New Release In Five Years [Stream]

Primus Friday broke a five-year studio silence with the new three-song EP, Conspiranoid. Available now on streaming platforms, the release is rooted in the 11-minute epic, “Conspiranoia.”

Prior to the release of the EP, bassist/vocalist The Claypools explained that Conspiranoid largely served as the delivery mechanism for “Conspiranoia”. Rather than release a single, Primus produced a pair of B-sides to accompany the “long, meandering, bastard of a song”, as Claypool called it. “Follow The Fool” and “Erin On The Side Of Caution” fill out the flip side and pick up modern themes from “Conspiranoia” about the age of misinformation.

“‘Conspiranoia’ grew out of a seed I planted in my notebook about a year ago – a few lines commenting on the mental state of the contemporary world,” Claypool said. Result when creating the song. “I have seen the distrust and rift grow between friends, co-workers, relatives and the general populace due to the consumption and digestion of misinformation, misinformation, distorted information and shameless fairy tales perpetuated by anyone with a slight hint of web design aptitude. I was compelled to shed some light on the ridiculousness of many of these perspectives and the lack of rational thought that was applied in interpreting many of the entities and theories of this guy.

The three-song collection fits together into a neat and digestible 19-minute package. Primus haven’t released a full-fledged album since 2017. The Seven Desatronsand as Claypool told the podcast host Kyle Merediththe band is in no rush to release a brand new LP just yet.

“We haven’t had a lot of time to do a full-fledged album, but also how many people are open to us playing a full-fledged album live these days,” said Claypool, who performs currently Dashit is A farewell to kings every night of the group’s 64-date world tour, asked on Kyle Meredith with last month. “It’s like we had the Rush stuff, we all had our stuff, and you know, when you go see a band that you’ve seen for many years, often watching them play a bunch of new songs isn’t necessarily what you want, but trickling in a few songs will be better. That way we can actually play these things live and we’re not burying people with all this music they don’t know. With the exception of a song that’s literally 13 minutes long, so go to the bathroom before you start that one.

Claypool deepened his current affairs discussion last week with the release of “Zelensky: The Iron Ball Man.” The guest-filled tribute to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky saw Les team up with Gogol Bordellothe leader of Ukrainian origin Eugene Hutz and welcomes contributions from Billy strings, Stewart Copeland, Sean Lenonand Hütz’s teammate Sergei Ryabtsev.

“We now have a recording to help rally support for a country that was bullied, and a David vs. Goliath type man who stood up for his freedom, his freedom and his homeland,” Claypool said. rolling stone. “[We’re] pay tribute to a man who has committed himself to his people beyond anything I have seen in my tenure on this planet. This unlikely man grabbed the reins of leadership and held on in such a way that the world is now galvanized in support.
