(BH) Primus have announced a very special fall tour which is billed as "An evening with Primus," that will feature two full sets.
The trek is in support of Green Naugahyde, the band's first studio album in 11 years out September 13, 2011 on ATO Records and Prawn Songs.
The tour begins on September 23rd in Boston, makes its way west, and ends on October 22nd in Los Angeles.
Green Naugahyde was produced and engineered by Les Claypool in his personal studio, Rancho Relaxo, in Northern California, and features Claypool, long-time guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane. Lane was in an early lineup of the band, and was also in Sausage, a 1994 reunion of the 1988 Primus lineup. Green Naugahyde expands on Primus' incomparable sound and also sees them bringing it into the next millennium. It is a cerebral and complex album that, like all of the band's output, is teeming with the band's signature blend of whimsy and underlying darkness.
