Originally conceived in 2015, with Claypool knowing that Primus would take a year off after touring alongside The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and Dinosaur Jr. He kept in touch with The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger's lead singer Sean Lennon, who had not planned any musical project for the following year. They started to have ideas of making an old-school, psychedelic and progressive rock record. Claypool invited Lennon to his guesthouse to drink wine, run some ideas and play drums.
Over the course of six weeks, they wrote and recorded a total of ten songs with both of them sharing various vocal and instrumental responsibilities, going beyond their core instruments of bass and guitar, culminating in the release of their first studio album, Monolith of Phobos. The album debuted in the Top 10 of three Billboard charts: Top Vinyl Albums, Top Tastemakers Albums, and Top Alternative Albums.
On February 22nd, 2019, the duo released their second studio album, South of Reality. The LP was written and recorded over two months at Claypool's home recording studio in California, and was preceded by the release of the six and a half minute long track "Blood and Rockets". The duo embarked on a brief headlining tour in support of the record in late 2018, with successive dates in the spring of 2019.
