Every now and then, you come across a band that genuinely stand alone as a real musical one-off and Primus fit that exact bill.  Their live performances have earned them a devoted following over the decades, and to this day, their shows still attract large crowds.  They are hitting the road again and will be returning to Australia in 2018 for a national tour with special guests, The Dean Ween Group.

Primus is responsible for some of the most cutting edge and original rock music of the 1990’s. They were strictly an underground phenomenonthat refused to be pigeonholed – merging alternative, punk, country, roots rock, and experimental music.  Couple that with Claypool’spenchant for witty and often humorous storytelling lyrics, it made them a genuinely intriguing proposition.  In the years between their third and fourth albums, their cult grew rapidly, and they fully infiltrated the mainstream.

Building a large and loyal following first in and around San Francisco before eventually going global, Primus kicked things off with a string of releases that are now considered classic alternative rock titles – 1989’s ‘Suck on This,‘ 1990’s ‘Frizzle Fry,’ 1991’s ‘Sailing the Seas of Cheese,‘ 1993’s‘Pork Soda,‘ and 1995’s ‘Tales from the Punchbowl.

A Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling band, Primus have toured with some of rock’s biggest names (Jane’s Addiction, Public Enemy, Rush and U2).  They’ve headlined the third-ever Lollapalooza Festival, and issued a variety of crafty music videos, which stood out in sharp contrast to the ultra-seriousness of most other video clips at the time.

The Desaturating Seven is their ninth studio album which was released in September this year.  Primus are Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde & Tim Alexander and no doubt, fans will welcome their return.
