Primus Extend Fall 2018 Tour ‘Into Three Glorious Goblin Filled Weeks’
Primus have been having so much fun on tour this year that they just can't stop! They have just announced an extension of their 2018 run starting in mid-September and running through early October, making for "three glorious Goblin filled weeks," according to Les Claypool.
"Hey, all you Primates out there," the frontman and bassist says in a statement. "So, due to popular demand and the fact that such a spectacular time on this latest summer tour was had, we’ve decided to extend our short fall run into three glorious Goblin filled weeks of Primus. If you haven’t seen it yet or want to catch it one last time, now’s your chance to get your 'gob on.' We might even slip a little Nutbutter onto your Glass Sandwich as we all ride the Hamburger Train to Kalamazoo...well maybe. And, don’t forget, dress like your favorite Goblin or Primus character and win a prize. (We are thinking jars of Pickled Ler Underpants but we’ve yet to work that out)."
The band's latest album, The Desaturating Seven, came out last September and was inspired by the 1978 children's book titled The Rainbow Goblins by Italian author and artist Ul de Rico. Claypool often read the book to his children as they were growing up and it tells a story of seven goblins - one representing each color of the rainbow - who simultaneously pull all of the color out of the world.
