Primus have mapped out a spring North American tour that will find the veteran rockers performing two sets per night accompanied by 3-D visuals and a quadraphonic sound system -- elements that will combine to create what frontman Les Claypool has called "a really trippy" experience for fans. The trek kicks off March 8 in New Orleans and runs through a June 9 gig in North Tonawanda, N.Y. Along the way, they'll stop at the Bottle Rock, Mountain Jam and Niagara River Rocks festivals.
According to a recent statement, Mickey Melchiondo – otherwise known as Dean Ween – is teaming up with Les Claypool, bassist for funk-metal mavens (and Mountain Jam 2013 performers) Primus, to star in a new reality series … about fishing. Who knew that these two artists shared a passion other than music?
A range of rock acts, from been-a-thing-forever Primus, still-a-huge thing Dave Matthews, to just-became-a-thing Alabama Shakes, have contributed songs to 'Turn the Tide,' a charity album released as companion to 'Last Call at the Oasis,' a documentary investigating the global water crisis.
