Les Claypool coming to your town now

Les Claypool is taking over the northern hemisphere on the 2nd leg of his year-long tour in support of his critically acclaimed latest masterpiece Of Fungi and Foe, out now on Prawn Song Records.

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 2 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).
