Primus Announce Fall U.S. Tour

Primus have announced a fall U.S. tour. Les Claypool commented:

“Hey all you Primates out there. So, due to popular demand and the fact that such a spectacular time on this latest summer tour was had, we’ve decided to extend our short fall run into three glorious Goblin filled weeks of Primus. If you haven’t seen it yet or want to catch it one last time, now’s your chance to get your “gob on”. We might even slip a little Nutbutter onto your Glass Sandwich as we all ride the Hamburger Train to Kalamazoo…well maybe. And, don’t forget, dress like your favorite Goblin or Primus character and win a prize. (We are thinking jars of Pickled Ler Underpants but we’ve yet to work that out).”

Primus Cover Dead Kennedys’ “Holiday In Cambodia” Live, Perform With Tool’s Danny Carey At New Year’s Eve Show

During some recent shows Primus have been rocking a live cover of Dead Kennedys‘ “Holiday In Cambodia.“ Below, you can see fan-filmed footage of the track from their December 30 show in Los Angeles, CA show and their New Year’s Eve concert in Oakland, CA, which featured Bob C. Cock. In other news, you can also see footage of Tool drummer Danny Carey joining the band onstage for “Southbound Pachyderm” as well. This collaboration came as a result of Carey and Mastodon’s Brent Hinds’ Legend Of The Seagullmen project opening the New Year’s Eve show. However, it’s worth noting that Hinds was not present for that set, due to a family emergency.
