MEMBERS OF MASTODON, BRUTAL TRUTH, OTHER BANDS THAT WON’T GET SEARCH ENGINE TRAFFIC READY PRIMATE DEBUT
Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher, Brutal Truth’s Kevin Sharp, and some other dudes that probably 98% of you don’t care about/have never heard of before formed a new grind outfit called Primate, and last year, they even played some live shows with some pretty cool bands, like Magrudergrind and Despise You. And unbeknownst to people who weren’t paying very close attention (like a certain incredibly sexy, delightfully witty Jewish blogger), the band also self-released a thousand copies of their debut album, Draw Back A Stump.
If you’re not one of the thousand people who got Stump during its initial pressing, though, don’t cry your eyes out. The band has signed with Relapse, who will release Stump on a wider scale on July 3, just in time for you to scare all the guests at your Fourth of July barbecue away. Here’s a teaser for the album, which suggests it will be pretty good, which is not shocking, given the players involved:
And after the jump, you can watch video of Primate performing live last year at that aforementioned Magrudergrind/Despise You show. That video also suggests that Stump is going to be worth your time. So, good news all around, eh?
