To commemorate the tour, each performance (excluding the festivals) will have a small number of beautifully crafted, limited edition, hand printed silkscreen posters available for purchase from the merch booth at each venue. Each poster will be designed by a different artist and available only once, individually numbered and extremely limited in capacity. Like last year, we expect the posters to sell out quickly. First come, first served! The individual posters will be unveiled the night of each show, at the gig and on the Primus Facebook page. For a look at the posters so far (and for all of the posters from the last tour), check out zoltron.com.
Check out Primus' new video for "Lee Van Cleef" at teamcoco.com [or below]. This (re-)animated video was created by the award winning Mixtape Club.
Primus will also be playing Gathering The Vibes Festival this year, July 19th - 22nd in Bridgeport, CT. Gathering of the Vibes is an annual music, arts and camping festival now in its 17th year. Vibes has grown into a four-day festival featuring world-class bands and musicians and showcasing extraordinarily talented up-and-coming bands.
