PRIMUS announce ‘a tribute to kings’ tour to honor RUSH

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at 4:17 PM (PST)

 

Lot of tour news today from Ozzy sadly having to cancel his farewell dates with Marilyn Manson due to illness to Faith No More and Korn hitting the road with Spotlights, Helmet and others in tow. For me, the coolest announcement was from, uh, the Punchbowl? Alt rock fusion funk metal hard rock blender of weirdness icons Primus are known to have their own legendary take on Rush’s “YYZ” that often segues into “John The Fisherman” and created a nerdy bridge between fun living fandoms many years ago. Shit, due to my age I probably was aware of the cover version first. Anyhow, both powerful trios capable of crazy instrumental prowess and weird ass vocals – of course it made sense. Seriously can you hear  Hellbound 17 1/2 (theme from)” and not hear some Rush influence?

To honor the late, great Neil Peart we now are lucky to get Les and the gang doing a Farewell To Kings full album tour. Pretty special. Check out the dates HERE.

This summer, #Primus will pay homage to prog-rock legends @rush with a "Tribute to Kings", a cross-country tour that will feature the iconic 'A Farewell to Kings' in its entirety. Special guests @officialwolfmother will be joining the tour, with @theswordofficial and @battlestheband opening select dates. "A little over one year ago, Ler LaLonde and I started kicking the idea around of Primus performing a series of shows featuring an iconic Rush album from our youth," says bandleader Les Claypool. "Being that 'A Farewell to Kings' was the first Rush record I ever heard, and that it contains my all-time favorite Rush tune, "Cygnus X1", the choice narrowed quickly. Years ago, I had done something similar with Colonel Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, when we covered Pink Floyd Animals in its entirety. It was an insane amount of work, but ended up being one of the most enjoyable live endeavors I've ever done. Dubbing the tour 'Primus: A Tribute to Kings'; it was originally scheduled to be performed in the Fall of 2019, but when we were asked to support Slayer on their Final Campaign, the "Tribute to Kings" tour was postponed. Geddy, Alex and Neil had been superheroes to Larry, Herb and I in our teens, so when we all became pals while touring together in the early 90's, we were pretty delighted; partially because of the musical geek-out factor, but mostly because the three guys whom we had admired so much from afar, turned out to be truly great, down-to-earth humans, and like us, a tad eccentric. The "Tribute to Kings" tour will be just as it is implied, a respectful and loving tribute to three spectacular musicians, songwriters, legends and friends" A special pre-sale, including VIP upgrade options, will go on sale tomorrow, Wed, February 19 at 10am local time. General public on sale is this Friday, February 21 at 10am local time. Ticket & show info at www.primusville.com/tour

Psychy stony proggy hard rockers King Buffalo are just the thing for getting your wheels and imagination turning on those overcast days where the clouds won’t seem to part. You can listen to their  tasteful 8 minute new road worthy opus “Eta Carinae” now from new EP Dead Star, out March 20th, if you want to get the yellow motion lines on your mental highway flying past again at optimum speeds.  I am liking the propulsive grooves and smooth vocal hypnosis of this one. This band never tip their hand and just grow on you like a familiar shirt you don’t want to change, but hopefully occasionally is laundered- hahaha.

“These six songs deviate and expand on horizons that we as King Buffalo haven’t yet reached,” says drummer Scott Donaldson, who also handled the graphic layout of Dead Star with Ryan T. Hancock’s striking cover art. “It’s extremely exciting to make something familiar, but unlike anything we’ve previously done. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

Dead Star was written and recorded by King Buffalo in Rochester, NY at the Main Street Armory in December of 2019 & January 2020. Produced & engineered by Sean McVay, mixed by Grant Husselman, and mastered by Bernie Matthews. The artwork was created by Ryan T Hancock with fonts by Mike Turzanski.

Dead Star Track list:
1. Red Star Pt. 1
2. Red Star Pt. 2
3. Echo of a Waning Star
4. Ecliptic
5. Eta Carinae
6. Dead Star

Dead Star is the Rochester rock trio’s 4th EP overall and kicks off a busy 2020 that finds the band schlepping their sonic spaciousness to more stages and markets. Dates BELOW.

Big tour news of the day as Black Dahlia Murder confirm they will set out with Testament, Municipal Waste and Meshiaak for a North American blood run.  The near-month-long trek will commence in Phoenix, Arizona on April 20th and conclude in Anaheim, California on May 28th. Obviously this is going to be fuck-nuts bonkers mosh-city. Can you tell I used to be an English major?

Comments vocalist Trevor Strnad of the tour, “It is a massive honor and pleasure to be considered a worthy peer to the mighty Testament. Being a fan of theirs since childhood, I have to stop and pinch myself to see if it’s a dream or not. Luckily, I’m still awake! To say that we in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER are excited for this undertaking would be a massive understatement. Not to mention the added pleasure of combining forces with the non-stop energy of Municipal Waste. Too fucking sick! These three entities together will be leveling venues across North America and leaving no head un-banged! This is it! The stars have aligned! Prepare to fucking thrash!”

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, February 7th at 10:00am local time. See all confirmed dates below.

In addition to the tour announcement, ABYSMAL DAWN has even bigger news in store for 2020! The band has just completed work on their long-awaited fifth studio album, which will be their debut to Season of Mist. The forthcoming full-length was mixed by Charles Elliott and produced and recorded by Charles Elliot and Mike Bear at Tastemaker Audio while the drums were tracked by John Haddad at Trench Studios. The offering was mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. I for one am incredibly pumped at this news and was hoping the band would land a new, solid contract somewhere soon!

Speaking about the upcoming offering, ABYSMAL DAWN comments:
“We’re officially done with album number 5! It’s been quite some time since we released any new music, and we feel we have something special on our hands. It took a lot of time, effort, and seeing through some trying times to get to this moment. We’re very proud of the outcome and think fans will agree it was worth the wait. Musically we’re pushing our limits more than ever, while still maintaining what people love about Abysmal Dawn. Now we take a quick breath before getting back once again to spreading our brand of misanthropic extreme metal across the globe. See you on the road in 2020!”
