South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s epic sophomore album might be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an asteroid impact from space, these seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone.

ATO Records will release South of Reality on February 22, 2019; pre-order for the record is now available. The Claypool Lennon Delirium will play select dates in California this December. Pre-sale tickets will be available on Thursday and tickets will be on-sale for the general public this Friday at 12pm local time (all tour dates below). Stay tuned for more tour news soon!
Rolling Stone is sharing “Blood and Rockets” from South of Reality today, as well as an interview with Claypool and Lennon about the new record, which they say “feels like an organic extension of Monolith of Phobos, blending the wildly surreal and psychedelic with satirical social commentary.” Additionally, RS calls new track “Blood and Rockets”, “a sprawling epic that finds Lennon and Claypool crooning and snarling, respectively, over spacey synths and chiming guitars.”
Grab your goggles and a month’s supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock ‘n’ roll rocket ship, and frankly you may never come back!
