Primus Announce Tour Dates, ‘Green Naugahyde’ Release Date

    With their then-indefinite hiatus officially over, funk-rockers Primus are making their official comeback in September with the release of Green Naugahyde. It’s the band’s first full-length album since 1999’s Antipop and apparently sounds a lot like their earlier records, according to frontman Les Claypool. Sounds good to us. And to celebrate their reformation, Primus will hit the road these next few months. They’re kicking things off next month with some dates with the Flaming Lips before beginning a proper headlining tour toward the end of September and into October.
