Only I read on Wiki that one was planned for spring 2006, though I haven't heard anything.

And speaking of Primus, is this not the oddest video you've EVER seen?

I haven't heard anything at all and I'm on their mailing list. I hope it's better than the Animals EP though. Not that it was bad, but it wasn't really great either. It was a step in the right direction though because they were making an effort to go back to their pre-Brain sound...but it showed that they were making an effort rather than just having it come naturally.

And yeah, I love their videos. The Animals EP came with a DVD with all of them on it, plus a bunch of live stuff. It was nice.

YES! There are rumors. According to Wikipedia (unreliable, I know) and another forum that I can't really remember right now (possibly the Les Claypool one), there was mentioning of an album coming out this spring/summer and a world tour accompanying it. I'll try and find the links, but I'm going to go right on ahead and tell you that they're rumors and not facts.

On July 19, 2005, it was announced that Primus was going to release a new full-length album by spring of 2006 with an international tour, expected to be the band's longest yet (as the band is expecting heavy publicity), in the works as well. This marks the first full-length Primus album since 1999's Antipop, and the first full-length album with Alexander on drums since 1995's Tales From the Punchbowl. So far no song list or any additional information about the album has been announced.

That's according to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primus_(band))

]Claypool is currently working on the long-awaited 8th full length Primus album set for a release in spring or summer 2006.

Not quite Primus, but:

Claypool has confirmed that he will be releasing an as of yet untitled solo album in May of 2006. He will also release his debut novel, South of the Pumphose, in July 2006.

Those are also from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Claypool)

In other Claypool news, Primus (Claypool, Tim Alexander, and Larry LaLonde) are currently working on a new studio album slated for release in early 2006.

Just let me add this, 'cos I love it:

In 1995 Primus released their fifth album, Tales from the Punchbowl. It was very well received and contained Primus's most successful single to date, the Grammy-nominated "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver"... Many falsely believed "Wynona" was about actress Winona Ryder. Claypool has acknowledged several times that the song is not about Ryder, indicating that the song's name is spelled and pronounced differently. While this placated Ryder, her then boyfriend Soul Asylum vocalist David Pirner took offense and renamed one of his songs "Les Claypool's A Big Fucking Asshole" in concert.
