Primus announce new EP 'Conspiranoid', debut 11-minute song

Stream the epic opening track of the imminent new record right now.

Progressive/experiment rock and metal veterans Primus have formally announced a new, three-track EP titled Conspiranoid. The release will arrive on April 22 through ATO Records.

Today the group has shared the opening track, 11-minute opus, "Conspiranoia," which can be streamed now via Consequence.

Les Claypool had the following to say to Consequence: "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. '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."

He continued, "I watched the distrust and divide grow between friends, colleagues, relatives, and the general population because of the consumption and digesting of disinformation, misinformation, warped information, and flat-out fairy tales being perpetuated by anyone with a slight hint of web design aptitude."

Conspiranoid EP track listing:

01. Conspiranoia
02. Follow the Fool
03. Erin on the Side of Caution
