The Claypool Lennon Delirium is gearing up to release their second album together, South of Reality, due out February 22 via ATO. In celebration of the forthcoming release, Les Claypool and Sean Lennon brought the band to New York City to perform “Blood and Rockets” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.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.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 Nietzsche 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.”So far, The Claypool Lennon Delirium has shared “Blood and Rockets (Movement I, Saga Of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too The Moon)”, “Easily Charmed By Fools”, and “Amethyst Realm” from the new record.Watch The Claypool Lennon Delirium perform “Blood and Rockets” on television below:The Claypool Lennon Delirium – “Blood And Rockets”[Video: The Late Show]Tonight, 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.

The virus has killed more than 2,600 people and infected over 77,000 others in China. In the rest of the world, there have been more than 40 deaths and 2,700 cases. “Baka iba-ibang araw sila na-expose o nakasalamuha sa mga positibong kaso so naisip po natin na baka pinakamagaling po ang mag-ulit tayo ng another 14-day quarantine para lang tayo makasigurado,” said Vergeire. The Diamond Princess was quarantined on Feb. 5 after a passenger who disembarked in Hong Kong tested positive for the virus. Many crew were not isolated because they were needed to keep the vessel running. The repatriated Filipinos would be quarantined for 14 days at a facility at the New Clark City in Tarlac that was previously used to house athletes in last year’s Southeast Asian Games. Filipino crew members of Diamond Princess disembarked the quarantined ship in Japan on Tuesday afternoon. They were transported from the Yokohama Port, where the cruise ship has been docked for weeks, to the Haneda Airport. CNN PH The Philippines so far confirmed three “imported” cases of the disease from Wuhan, including one death and 2 who were discharged, while 98 other suspected coronavirus patients across the country./PN “Pagdating nila, lahat sila ay maayos except for one na medyo nahilo raw po pero after a while ay okay na siya… Wala namang nagkaroon ng sintomas,” Vergeire told DZMM AM radio on Wednesday. DOH Assistant Secretary Rosette Vergeire said the 441 Filipino crew members and four passengers of the Diamond Princess, who arrived in the Philippines before dawn, did not show any signs of coronavirus so far.
