The Claypool Lennon Delirium Announce New Album And U.S. Tour



claypoollennonAfter touring together in two separate bands, two of the greatest musical minds have decided to team up as Les Claypool and Sean Lennon have joined forces to for the Claypool Lennon Delirium. The pair had already revealed upcoming appearances at Bonnaroo and the Peach Music Festival and have now detailed an extensive tour in support of their debut LP Monolith Of Phobos, which is due June 3.

Claypool and Lennon will be joined by Mark Ramos Nishita of the Beastie Boys and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band to form the Claypool Lennon Delirium live band.

“Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart. He definitely reflects his genetics – not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother. It makes for a glorious freak stew,” Claypool said in a statement. “Usually I play the drums and percussion on my records but Sean has such a different feel than I do, it just made more sense for him to man the kit on most of the tunes on this project. I took the helm at my old vintage API console and let him bang away. He was happy as a piggy rolling in shit every time he grabbed the sticks…his drumming is like a cross between Ringo and Nick Mason. But I think folks will be most surprised by what a monster guitar player he is, especially when you prod him a bit.”
