PRIMUS ANNOUNCE PERFORMANCE OF CLASSIC ALBUM ‘SAILING THE SEAS OF CHEESE’ AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL APRIL 4TH
Primus are excited to announce a European tour in support of Green Naugahyde, their first studio album in 11 years in stores now on Prawn Songs. The tour, which will feature two Primus sets each evening, begins on March 23rd in Pordenone, Italy, and ends with 2 nights in London at the Royal Albert Hall on April 4th & 5th.
The band have revealed that their first performance on the 4th at the Royal Albert Hall will feature their seminal ‘Sailing The Seas Of Cheese’ album played in its entirety, followed by a complete run-through of their critically-acclaimed new album ‘Green Naugahyde’. The second night on the 5th will feature two sets spanning their entire back catalogue. Both of these special nights will be a real treat for Primus fans both new and old.
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.
For the past 27 years, Primus have followed in the footsteps of boundary-pushing artists like Frank Zappa and Pink Floyd to create some of the most original and inventive music in existence. Green Naugahyde is a Primus record with all of the magic and mystery that phrase entails-and while no one can say for sure what the future will hold in store for the band, the most important thing is that the album exists and will inevitably hold its own in the band's impressive cannon of music.
