Primitive Man have premiered a new song titled “The Lifer.” This track is from the band’s new album “Immersion,” which will be released on August 14.

Ethan McCarthy said the following:

“‘The Lifer‘ is about being cursed with and unable to shed the desire to create. The lack of financial security that comes with that. It is also about the ever-present on the road psychosis touring musicians get as well as the enemies you meet along the way.”

“Immersion” Track Listing:

01. “The Lifer”
02. “Entity”
03. “Menacing”
04. “∞”
05. “Foul”

Primitive Man Premiere New Song “Oily Tears”

Primitive Man have premiered a new song titled “Oily Tears“. This track is from the band’s new split release with Hell, which will be available on February 22. Ethan McCarthy commented:

“‘Oily Tears’ is about how the earth is decaying right before our fucking eyes. We chose to do a split with Hell out of a mutual respect for their art. MSW has easily written some of the best doom/sludge songs of the last five years and we’re excited to be able to share a release with him.”

Primitive Man & Hell Announce New Split Release

Primitive Man and Hell have announced that their new split release will be available on February 22. The effort will feature Primitive Man’s “Oily Tears” and “Pitiful & Loathsome“ and Hell’s “Nuumen.“ Pre-orders can be found HERE.

Primitive Man’s Ethan McCarthy commented:

“The world is rotting all around us and that’s what these songs are about. We chose to do a split with Hell out of a mutual respect for their art. M.S.W. has easily written some of the best doom/sludge songs of the last 5 years and we’re excited to be able to share a release with him.”

Hell‘s M.S.W. added:

“At the time I was in the mood to write more in the style of the Hell I album. Stomping, deep, low-fi. The lyrics are about the everyday struggle of crippling anxiety and depression but not to fear it. Embrace it and use it to your advantage until it subsides, if at all. ‘Do not fear what you suffer. Do not fear the compression in your chest.’

The lyrics are aimed toward being surrounded by greed and the overlords that control this fucked up place we exist in as if they were born in Hell. Hell and Primitive Man have played multiple shows/fests together and we’ve always been fans of each others tunes. Sometimes all you have to do is ask. I am excited for this release to finally come out and very happy to be on wax with those dudes.”

Primitive Man Premiere NSFW Video For “Sugar Hole”

“Death’s holy scythe has been replaced by an automatic weapon in the modern age, mother nature is being asphyxiated. On all shores, people are divided and life is in turmoil. Humanity is on trial: pick a side.”
