The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s Monolith Of Phobos Out Now

Posted on Jun. 6 2016

Two worlds have collided, and what glorious and odd worlds they are. With some help from the Gods of Pinot Noir, Primus’s Les Claypool and Sean Lennon decided to combine their abstract talents into a project called The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Their efforts have now spawned the psychedelic space rock record, Monolith of Phobos, which is out now. Order the album HERE.

Also out now is the band’s new video for “Bubbles Burst”, a track Lennon penned about meeting Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s pet chimpanzee. The video stars UK actor Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh) and was directed by Les Claypool. Courtesy of NPR Music, you can see the video for the first time + hear Lennon discuss its making with Robin Hilton HERE.

The Claypool Lennon Delirium began their summer tour this past Saturday with a touring band that includes Les Claypool (bass, vocals), Sean Lennon (guitar, vocals), Mark “Money Mark” Ramos Nishita of the Beastie Boys (keyboards), and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band (drums). All upcoming tour dates including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and other summer festivals are below.
