Influential alternative rock icons Primus are back and have confirmed their first headlining tour in four years. Old friends Gogol Bordello will be joining them on the road playing such venues as the Willamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, NY, and the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Aug 12th. More dates to come as the band refines their chops before heading into the studio to record their first album of brand new music since 1999’s Antipop. The new album will be released in 2011.
Primus formed in the late ’80s in Northern California, releasing their first album, Suck On This, in 1989. They signed to Caroline Records and released the now classic Frizzle Fry in 1990. As part of the alternative rock explosion of the ’90s, the band signed to Interscope and gave the world some of the biggest records of the decade, including Sailing The Seas Of Cheese, Pork Soda, Tales From The Punchbowl and The Brown Album, had several Billboard top 10 debuts, garnered a Grammy nomination and wrote the internationally loved and enduring theme song for South Park.
