Primus is excited to welcome legendary drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander back into the band following the departure of Jay Lane. Les, Ler and Tim will head into the studio this November to begin work on the follow up to 2011’s Green Naughayde. Tim will be returning to play New Years Eve at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Expect to see plenty more dates to follow in summer and fall of 2014. Tim last performed with Primus at the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco on August 23rd, 2008.
Rolling Stone broke the news of Tim’s return to Primus earlier today. The article, which also includes an interview with Les on his fishing show with Dean Ween, Oysterhead and more, can be found HERE.
Les has been busy this fall as he just finished up work on a Duo De Twang album for release sometime in early 2014 on ATO Records. Additionally, he’ll head out on tour with the Duo de Twang in October. He’ll also perform with Tom Waits at Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA.
