Primus is on tour performing material from The Desaturating Seven, their latest and ninth overall studio long-player, which was released back on Sept. 29 on ATO Records. The literary-influenced album was inspired by a 1978 children’s book called The Rainbow Goblins by Italian author Ul de Rico. The follow-up to 2011’s Green Naugahyde, The Desaturating Seven landed at No. 26 on the Billboard 200 and spawned two singles: “The Seven” and “The Scheme.”
This July marked the 20th anniversary of the legendary band’s fifth full-length, The Brown Album. Peaking at No. 21 on the Billboard 200 following its July 1997 release, The Brown Album gave birth to the singles: “Shake Hands with Beef” and “Over the Falls.”
Primus released their debut LP, Frizzle Fry, in February 1990 via Caroline Records. The album was anchored by the band’s first single and radio hit “John the Fisherman.” It also included the singles “Too Many Puppies” and “Mr. Knowitall.” Frizzle Fry was remastered and re-released in 2002 on Prawn Song Records.
In the ‘90s and ‘00s, Primus performed set at Lollapalooza, Sno-Core, Ozzfest, Family Values Tour and more. They also made a memorable appearance at Woodstock ‘94.
