Primus frontman Les Claypool commented:

“Third time is the charm…we’ve postponed this ‘Tribute to Kings’ tour twice now. Once, because we opted to help send Slayer on their way into retirement, and once because mother nature decided to slap us all into isolation with a nasty virus. This time, I will get to go out there and get my ‘Geddy on’. I’ve got my Ricky shined up and have been practicing my Moog licks. 2020 has proven to be one nasty kick to the crotch on many levels.

This nation is divided beyond anything I’ve ever seen; from who’s wearing masks or not to who’s treating folks with common dignity…or not. Let’s hope 2021 will resolve us all into some form of unity. As far as touring, it will be nice to be back in the saddle again, see y’all next summer…’Geddy up!’”

Primus’ Les Claypool commented:

“A little over one year ago, Ler LaLonde and I started kicking the idea around of Primus performing a series of shows featuring an iconic Rush album from our youth

Being that ‘A Farewell to Kings‘ was the first Rush record I ever heard, and that it contains my all-time favorite Rush tune, “Cygnus X1“, the choice narrowed quickly.

Years ago, I had done something similar with Colonel Claypool’s Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, when we covered Pink Floyd ‘Animals‘ in its entirety. It was an insane amount of work, but ended up being one of the most enjoyable live endeavors I’ve ever done.

Dubbing the tour ‘Primus: A Tribute to Kings‘; it was originally scheduled to be performed in the Fall of 2019, but when we were asked to support Slayer on their Final Campaign, the “Tribute to Kings” tour was postponed.

Geddy, Alex and Neil had been superheroes to Larry, Herb and I in our teens, so when we all became pals while touring together in the early 90’s, we were pretty delighted; partially because of the musical geek-out factor, but mostly because the three guys whom we had admired so much from afar, turned out to be truly great, down-to-earth humans, and like us, a tad eccentric.

The “Tribute to Kings” tour will be just as it is implied, a respectful and loving tribute to three spectacular musicians, songwriters, legends and friends.”

Wolfmother Premiere “Victorious” Music Video

Wolfmother have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Victorious, via Mashable. The effort will be released on February 19.

Andrew Stockdale said the following about the clip:

“The video is about a girl who’s held hostage by evil alien folk, but upon hearing the powers of Wolfmother’s smash hit rock ’n roll extravaganza, the heroine is set free from the dark forces of the universe. It is with this knowledge that all forces are combined through the rite of Wolfmother riffmania. And we had a blast shooting it.”
