Beats Antique Introduce "Beelzebub" Featuring Les Claypool

BEATS ANTIQUE and iconic Primus leader Les Claypool have formally summoned "Beelzebub."   The new single from the trio merges a tribal bounce with pulsating dance energy and devilishly dynamic playing from Claypool. After recently premiering on Relix's official site, it's now available on iTunes and all digital retailers.

Listen to BEATS ANTIQUE “Beelzebub” featuring Les Claypool at:

"Beelzebub" serves as a fitting prelude to the group's forthcoming new album, A Thousand Faces – Act 1, out October 15. Breaking down boundaries and defying categorization, this 12-song collection traverses a myriad of styles and soundscapes, forging one hypnotic journey.

Unlike anything else in the spheres of either dance or world music, BEATS ANTIQUE stand alone. In addition to Claypool, this threesome has invited quite a few other friends along on the album including Alam Khan on "Kismet," Lynx & Sorne for "You The Starry Eyed" and Micah & Leighton in "Doors of Destiny.”

Recently, BEATS ANTIQUE completed a highly successful Kickstarter campaign in order to finance an immersive stage production for their impending tour in support of A Thousand Faces. The jaunt promises to be as unforgettable and unique as the music itself with their unique stage show created with Obscura Digital, a creative technology studio specializing in the design of immersive and interactive experiences (they’ve done work with the Guggenheim Museum, Google, and the United Arab Emirates).

This fall, you'll experience all the faces BEATS ANTIQUE possess and so much more.
