0

Les Claypool, vocalist/bassist for alternative metal oddity Primus, will be resurrecting his Fearless Flying Frog Brigade from a roughly 20-year hiatus this spring/summer. A new headlining tour from that collective has just been announced and will run from May through to mid-July.

Claypool‘s backing band on this forthcoming run will consist of his Claypool Lennon Delirium bandmate Sean Lennon on guitar, Harry Waters (McNally Waters, etc.) on keyboards and drummer Paulo Baldi (ex-Cake, etc.). Frequent Claypool collaborators Skerik (saxophone) and Mike Dillon (percussion) will also be performing as part of the collective.

As an added bonus, Claypool and co. will be performing a set consisting of “Animals“—the 1977 album from English prog rock legends Pink Floyd—nightly on the trek.

Support on the run will vary by date, with the likes of Fish Bone, Jerry Harrison & Adrian Belew: Remain In Light, Neal Francis, The Budos Band, Witch and Moon Duo booked to appear.

A limited pre-sale will be up tomorrow, February 01st at 10:00am local time. The general public can get their hands on tickets this Friday, February 03rd at 10:00am local time.
