Primus drop second single 'The Scheme' ahead of album release

Seminal prog rockers Primus aren't done sucking yet. The band will release the highly anticipated The Desaturated Seven on Sept. 29, the first-full length record featuring all three original members in two decades, and they've shared a second single titled "The Scheme" from the forthcoming album.

Bass reigns supreme on the three-minute track, with Les Claypool driving the rhythm alongside drummer Tim Alexander. Guitarist Ler LaLonde adds his patented high scales to create a sinister riff over the bass and percussion. Listen to the new song above.

"Schemers always scheming and they're scheming all the time," Claypool sings in a distorted vocal. "Weaselly little schemers, they've got scamming on their minds."

The Desaturated Seven is Primus' ninth studio effort since debuting with Frizzle Fry in 1990. The group previously shared "The Seven" last month, with Claypool drawing influence from the kiddie book The Rainbow Goblins he used to read to his children.

Primus will be out on the road next month on the "Ambushing the Storm" tour. Visit the band's page for tickets to select shows and view the complete tour itinerary here.
