[theprp.com] Band vocalist/bassist Les Claypool recently revealed what fans can expect from the trek to Billboard.com.
According to the article, attendees will be issued 3D goggles upon admittance to the venues. The group will take advantage of this through a wealth of new 3D imagery created explicitly for the tour—something that will apparently help accentuate their improv jams in particular.
“Quad Surround Sound” technology will also be utilized at each stop of the tour, which will find the band performing two sets per night. Despite the increased production scale, the performances will not be canned. On that, Claypool stated:
“Every show will be different. Different environments, as far as venues, are going to lend themselves to different experiences, depending on where you are and whatnot in the crowd. It’s very heady. People that are going to be moshing around probably won’t get any of this, but the heads will get it.”
The technology itself was developed by 3D Live with the initial leg of dates announced thus far serving as a test run for a possible future tour. Meanwhile, Claypool also revealed that a 5.1 surround sound reissue of the groups 1991 offering “Sailing The Seas of Cheese” will arrive sometime this fall.
When pressed about new material from the band however, he offered:
“We haven’t really been working on anything new at this point. We haven’t even really been talking about it. We’ve still been kind of hammering away at this record. It’s been a very pleasant record to play. It flows really well, so it’s been a good one to hammer away on. I doubt we’ll take as long (to make the next album) but we’re not on the 18-month schedule.”
