Break Into Summer with Rock Music Featuring Primus and Mastodon

The legendary rock group known as Primus has paired together with Mastodon to tour this summer across the United States.

Primus recently released The Desaturating Seven on September 29, 2017. The band has been chopping at the bit to showcase their latest material to live audiences. This tour will be an excellent double shot of hard rock music for attendees.


One of my favorite Primus stories was told to me by a friend years ago. He said he was watching them perform at Bonnaroo, and a mosh pit started to take place. He told me that he stood around the outside of the pit and attempted to keep a safe distance. Well, during the event one rowdy guest ran by and punched him in the face. Fool me once. He collected himself and continued to watch the show. The same rowdy guest circled back around and punched him in the face again. Fool me twice. The moral of the story, don’t punch people in the face at Primus shows.
