Les Claypool Summer Tour

LES CLAYPOOL Starts Summer Escapade
OF FUNGI AND FOE releasing on Vinyl on May 12

Les Claypool
Les Claypool will take over the northern hemisphere on his summer tour starting May 26 in Charlotte, NC. This is the second leg of his year-long tour in support of his critically acclaimed latest masterpiece OF FUNGI AND FOE out now on Prawn Song Records.

Special collectors' addition of OF FUNGI AND FOE will come out on vinyl May 12. This is a limited run so go to www.clubbastardo.com and get your copy.

OF FUNGI AND FOE is the expansion of material Claypool has recorded over the past few years for the video game Mushroom Men and the motion picture Pig Hunt. Being inspired by these two projects Claypool decided to keep creating and turn it into an album. The song "Mushroom Men" on this release is a more in depth version of the theme song from the video game. Additionally a jam session with Gogol Bordello's charismatic front-man Eugene Hutz turned into the track "Bite Out Of Life." The band is comprised of Les Claypool on bass/vocals, Paulo Baldi on Drums (Cake), Mike Dillon on Percussion (Ani Difranco), and Sam Bass on Cello (Deadweight).
