Les Claypool’s reunited Fearless Flying Frog Brigade will perform Pink Floyd’s Animals album in full on a huge North American tour

The Primus frontman teams up with Sean Lennon after a two-decade hiatus



Les Claypool has reunited the Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, the band he formed during a break from Primus, and will embark on a 41-date date North American tour.

“After a 20-year break, Les Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade is back and will be canvasing the USA this Spring & Summer on the Summer of Green Tour,” reads a statement on “The band will feature Sean Lennon on guitar, Harry Waters on keys, and Paolo Baldi on drums, along with longtime cohorts Skerik on saxophone, and Mike Dillon on percussion. Each night will include a full performance of Pink Floyd’s iconic album, Animals.

The band – which Claypool once described as a “kind of a King Crimson meets Pink Floyd meets Frank Zappa type thing” – released three albums through the bassist’s own label Prawn Song Records: Live Frogs Set 1 (2001), Live Frogs Set 2 (2001) and Purple Onion (2002).
