Primus and Mastodon 2018 Summer Tour

ATLANTA (Jan. 29, 2018) – Buckle up as Primus announces a summer tour with Atlanta’s own Mastodon with a performance at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre on Wednesday, May 16 at 7 p.m. Primus continues on the road in support of their ninth studio album, The Desaturating Seven, out now on ATO Records. Mastodon received the 2018 Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” during yesterday’s award ceremony.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. Tickets may be purchased by visiting www.FoxTheatre.org, by calling 855-285-8499, or at the Fox Theatre Ticket Office. Tickets start at $35, plus applicable fees. The Desaturating Seven led Primus back to some of the sounds and styles of their earlier days and has received praise from Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, AV Club and more. The album marks the return of the definitive Primus line-up—singer/bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry “Ler” LaLonde, and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander—for its first album of original music since 1995. Inspiration for the album came from a 1978 children’s book called The Rainbow Goblins by the Italian author and artist Ui de Rico. In the story, seven goblins come to the valley where rainbows are born, intending to steal the rainbows and eat them. The valley, though, knows that the goblins are coming, and makes a plan to thwart the wicked creatures by hiding the rainbow. After the goblins are caught in their own nets, the flowers release the colors of the rainbow and drown the goblins, and in gratitude, the rainbow turns the flowers into beautiful birds who fly across the valley in freedom. 

"It’s a story about gluttonous individuals sucking the colors out of the world,” says Les Claypool. “The overuse of resources by the greedy elite, and how the meek masses can overcome them in the end by unifying. It seemed pretty relevant these days.”
