Primus releases official video for “Follow The Fool,” vinyl edition of new EP

On the heels of a run of shows in Colorado next week – including a two-night appearance at the “South Park: 25th Anniversary Concert” at Red Rocks and the final US shows of the band’s wildly popular ‘A Tribute To Kings’ Tour in Vail on 8.12-13 – Primus has unveiled a music video for “Follow The Fool,” the final single off their new ‘Conspiranoid’ EP. Their first new music in more than five years, the EP features several commentaries on what frontman Les Claypool described as “the mental state of the contemporary world,” with “Follow The Fool” asking the pointed question – “who’s the bigger fool? Is it the fool, or is the fool who follows the fool.” A special vinyl release of the ‘Conspiranoid’ EP is out now via ATO Records.

Primus announced the ‘Conspiranoid’ EP in April with the release of its epic, 11-minute opening track, “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,” bassist Les Claypool said. “”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.”
