"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. A darkly twisted version of the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory soundtrack, the band titled the album 'Primus & the Chocolate Factory,' which is 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."

Primus and the Chocolate Factory will head out for its final tour in September 2015. Including a special show in Las Vegas with Clutch and a Reno date that will be a nice stopover for those heading home from Burning Man, the tour closes with a performance at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. Tickets for these dates went on sale at 10 am EST today. Head below to check out all dates, including their summer festival appearances.
