Influential alternative rock icons Primus, known for the bass thwapping of Les Claypool, have confirmed their first headlining tour in four years. Gogol Bordello will be joining them on the road playing such venues as the Willamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, NY, and the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre. More dates to come as the band refines their chops before heading into the studio to record their first album of brand new music since 1999's Antipop. The new album will be released in 2011.
