Following their brutal East Coast stint supporting the mammoth High On Fire this Fall, the ruthless faction known as Primate will tear through Georgia with several new shows. This weekend the band will bulldoze their own locale with a double-tap of shows confirmed in Atlanta on Friday and Savannah Saturday. Additionally, two other new hometown shows have been locked for February 1st with Capitalist Casualties, Dead In The Dirt and more, and on February 8th with Torche and Whores.
Somewhat of an underground supercollective of debauchery-prone scene vets comprised of Kevin Sharp, Dave Whitworth, Shayne Huff, Bill Kelliher and Mike Brennan, Relapse officially issued Primate‘s debut album Draw Back A Stump last year. The rabid release throws down with ten tracks of rampant punk/grind-fueled old-school hardcore in barely twenty minutes.
