Primus to play Lollapalooza, begin new album
This weekend Primus will head to Chicago to join a Lollapalooza lineup that ranges from the Pixies to Widespread Panic, their encore performance making them the only band there associated with the original, early-'90s incarnation of the festival. It's been 12 years since Primus first performed at Lollapalooza as the headlining act.
The appearance will be the first public show of 2005 for the band, who's gearing up to record a full-length studio album for release in spring 2006. The effort promises to be the first full Primus album since 1999, and the first with the classic lineup of Les Claypool, Larry Lalonde and Tim Alexander, since 1995's Tales From The Punchbowl. The new CD will be followed by the most thorough international touring the band has done in a decade.
