New Primus EP, “Conspiranoid”, Now Available

Primus: ConspiranoidPrimus is currently on the road paying tribute to Rush, but they’ve also made time to create their own music. Les Claypool revealed a new EP was on the way, and now Conspiranoid is out on all streaming platforms.

The album may only be a three-song collection, but it includes the 11-and-a-half-minute opus “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,” Claypool told Consequence. “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 other two tracks, “Follow The Fool” and “Erin On The Side Of Caution”, follow suit with Claypool’s signature bass stylings. Conspiranoid may be short, but it’s sweet, and it will hit the spot for any Primus fan.

Conspiranoid is available now digitally through iTunes, Amazon MP3, and more. A vinyl edition will be shipping later this year.

Conspiranoid Track List:

  1. Conspiranoia
