Primus will continue to allow audience recording.
Primus features Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde and Tim Alexander, performing together for the first time in seven years and touring in support of Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People. Each show on the current tour includes a second set performance of the band’s 1991 album, Sailing The Seas of Cheese.
