Primus Releasing ‘Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble’ 10/21- U.S. Tour Planned

Primus  will release their eighth studio album, a tribute to the 1971 musical Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. The LP, titled Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, will be released on October 21st on ATO. It happens to be the first album-length release from the classic, multi-platinum lineup — leader Les Claypool, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander — since 1995.  It is reported that the album will also be available on chocolate-colored vinyl and feature, naturally, five golden ones appropriately scattered about at random.  A full U.S. tour is to follow with Alexander, who recently suffered a hear attack, recovering in time. His percussion set-up — instead of a drumkit, he’s in the center of what Claypool describes as “a giant circle, or a pile of things to bang on.”
