Primus and the Chocolate Factory Tour

The definitive Primus line-up – Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander – reunited to release their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, ‘Primus & the Chocolate Factory,’.

“Our project is an homage to Gene Wilder and David L. Wolper’s, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the effect it had on me in my youth,” spouts Les, “Now we get to sell PRIMUS bars and hang out with demented Oompa Loompas. Plus to top it off, it gives me an excuse to wear a purple, velvet waistcoat and brown top hat for the next 18 months.”

This summer Primus will return to the States performing songs both new and old on a run with special guests Dinosaur Jr. Head below to check out all dates, including their summer festival appearances.
