PRIMUS ANNOUNCE TWO SPECIAL SHOWS AT THE LONDON ROYAL ALBERT HALL 13th September 2011
Hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed new album 'Green Naugahyde' (and first new album is eleven years), Primus are excited to be able to announce two very special shows on two different nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London on the 4th and 5th of April 2012.
An evening with Primus, featuring two full sets, 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.
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.
