PRIMITIVE MAN have confirmed that they will be heading to Europe this summer. The blackened sludge trio will hit the road with WAKE in mainland Europe before continuing on to the UK to tour with Opium Lord. The band will also play a handful of dates with fellow Relapse label mates, WEEKEND NACHOS. The band commented: "We are looking forward to spreading our seed far and wide across the pond. See you there."
PRIMITIVE MAN have spent much of this month on the road in the US, including shows at SXSW, in support of their latest album Scorn. Recorded by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt, etc.), Scorn was initially unleashed early last year via a collaboration between Throatruiner and Mordgrimm Records before being reissued by Relapse in August. The album was applauded for being a, "totally malignant sounding record ... that will consume you whole if you're not careful," by Cvlt Nation, "the best worst thing that has ever happened to you," by Metal Hammer, and "one of the most brutal, unsettling and uncompromising albums you will hear all year," by About.com.
Scorn can be streamed in its entirety via PRIMITIVE MAN's bandcamp here: primitivemandoom.bandcamp.com. Copies of the album, on both CD and vinyl can be purchased here www.relapse.com/primitiveman.
Tour mates WAKE hail from Alberta, Canada and will bring their grind and death roadshow to Europe in support of their split 7" with Theories released via Handshake, Inc. and 7Degrees records. A film version of their second album False is also due in the summer. Opium Lord are a heavy doom band hailing from the Midlands in the UK who have just completed work on their debut full length album .
