The Claypool Lennon Delirium is gearing up to release their second album together, South of Reality, due out February 22 via ATO. South of Reality is the follow-up to 2016’s Monolith of Phobos, the band’s debut record that displayed their fascinatingly raw authenticity, and 2017’s Lime And Limpid Green EP, which featured psychedelic covers of Pink Floyd, The Who, King Crimson, and Flower Travellin’ Band. So far, The Claypool Lennon Delirium has shared “Blood and Rockets (Movement I, Saga Of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too The Moon)”, an epic, 6-minute and 30-second composition, and “Easily Charmed By Fools”. Today, the Les Claypool and Sean Lennon-led project released their third single from the forthcoming album, “Amethyst Realm”. Listen below:As the band’s website describes the sophomore album, “South of Reality is an expression of our upside-down times, offering listeners both an escape from modern chaos and a filter through to which to embrace it… It’s the record Dr. Seuss would have made if Harry Potter and Nietzshe were his drinking buddies, and it’d be produced by Dr. Teeth.”Sean Lennon continues about the collaboration: “Les and I have been cooking up some wizard juice to take the edge off as we sit back and watch reality unravel. This album is the soundtrack to the demise of the world as we knew it.”On Tuesday, February 19th, The Claypool Lennon Delirium will celebrate the new album’s release at Rough Trade NYC in Brooklyn, NY with a special “South of Reality” event, featuring a live Q&A with Relix Editor Mike Greenhaus and a signing to follow. Purchase tickets to attend here.Then, The Claypool Lennon Delirium will embark on a three-week tour starting April 10, 2019. For a full list of upcoming dates, head to the band’s website.
