As Relapse prepares to officially release PRIMATE’s debut LP Draw Back A Stump into the general population on July 3rd, today another new track from the beast has been unleashed. Check out “Silence Of Violence” and get some info on how the group and album came together via Blow The Scene RIGHT HERE.
Also from the album, the track “Pride” is available via a Relapse lyric video AT THIS LOCATION and the title track “Draw Back a Stump” can be heard as part of an exclusive twenty-song Relapse podcast downloadable via Metal Injection HERE.
PRIMATE’s grind-infused hardcore punk ruckus brings the relentless spirit of the genre’s pioneers like Poison Idea, Doom, Bad Brains, Napalm Death and Discharge into the modern age with super slick and thunderous production and a foundation-leveling sonic beating. Formed by vocalist Kevin Sharp, bassist/vocalist Dave Whitworth, drummer Shayne Huff and guitarists Bill Kelliher and Mike Brennan, the band disbursed a 1000-run CD pressing of Draw Back A Stump on their own last year. Shortly after, they joined forces with Relapse who are now preparing to officially release a remixed and remastered version
the album worldwide in all formats, featuring three tracks not on the original release. Preorders are available HERE.
Following several destructive live appearances last year after the album was initially released, this new version will see PRIMATE taking to the streets once again, as live confrontations and more are being planned to take place in the months ahead.
“…it’s just so simple, unpretentious and bludgeoning, it’s almost hard to believe a band this straightforward manages to still sound pretty fresh. 9/10″ – Metal Storm
“…these veteran players deliver a scorching new effort, chock full of blazing punk-rock-flavored, d-beat-induced grindcore that is fresh and exciting while giving nod to the glory days.” – Blow The Scene
“…a hardcore record that is distinctly traditional, while still making occasional nods at all manner of more recent advancements… 4/5″ – Heavy Blog Is Heavy
