‘PRIMUS AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY’ OUT NOW

PRE-ORDER THE DELUXE EDITION HERE

A wild, radically reworked tribute” – Wall Street Journal

“One of the most unique and oddball acts in rock and roll.” – Guitar World

The definitive Primus line-up – Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander – just reunited to release their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, ‘Primus & the Chocolate Factory‘ out now.

“The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film,” says Claypool.  “The notion wasn’t so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books, because when you read those books, there is an eerie and somewhat menacing aspect implied.”

The band pulls it off by making something that is truly their own, without taking anything away from the movie.

“Our project is an homage to Gene Wilder and David L. Wolper’s, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the effect it had on me in my youth,” spouts Les, “Now we get to sell PRIMUS bars and hang out with demented Oompa Loompas. Plus to top it off, it gives me an excuse to wear a purple, velvet waistcoat and brown top hat for the next 18 months.”

And so as promised, Primus swiftly went out on the road the day after the album’s October 21strelease. After a run of dates in Europe, the band is now coming back to the US, starting with an April 8th show in Minneapolis. Full list of dates below.
