Les Claypool Says This Summer Tour Will Be "The Last Primus Run For A Bit"

Currently on tour in support of their latest release The Desaturating Seven, Primus have hinted at a break from touring.

In a new statement, frontman Les Claypool tells fans this summer will be “the last Primus run for a bit” and advises that “if you want to get your Goblin Rock fix, now is the time to do so.”

Reviving the most iconic Primus lineup – with Claypool on bass, Larry “Ler” LaLonde on guitar and Tim “Herb” Alexander on drums – this current tour features the psych-prog pioneers sharing the bill with heavy metal heroes Mastadon.

Read the full statement and check out Primus’ summer tour dates below:

Howdy folks, we are in the midst of our longest summer tour of many moons and we are lucky and happy to be flanked by our new comrades, the glorious Vikings known as Mastodon. This will be the last Primus run for a bit as we will need to cool-out for awhile, recharge and work on our nunchaku skills. So, if you want to get your Goblin Rock fix, now is the time to do so as it will be the last time to witness the glory of the Desaturating Seven production. See y’all on the highway… Les Claypool.
