After 11 long years, Primus is finally back with another installment of dark-toned and experimental rock music on its latest album, Green Naugahyde, set to release September 13 on ATO and Prawn Songs. Fans of Frank Zappa and Pink Floyd can appreciate Primus’ ability to create inventive and original music that pushes the boundaries of modern rock in every way, and Green Naugahyde captures the band’s whimsical sound that has been its signature for the past 27 years.


The lineup includes Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde, with the addition of Jay Lane, who has been an on-and-off member of the band since the late 1980s. All three musicians have been life-long collaborators and have worked together in various contexts, and the reunion on this album stems from their itch to work together once again.
