Primus is back, baby! Since their triumphant return last year, releasing the incomparable comeback album Green Naugahyde, the trio has been on a tear of the world, touring nonstop for the masses. They recently rocked Free Press Summer Fest in Houston, and you might have caught them prior to that at Stubb’s. So the funk-metal-jam-psych hybrid is no stranger to the Lone Star State or the ATX. But this time around, they’ve got something special.

What’s that? You’ve never heard of Primus? Well, come with me, we’ll sail the seas of cheese! Here’s “My Name Is Mud” from Woodstock 94. You really should have already seen this by now. It’s classic archival footage tucked away in the Library of Congress….well, at least it should be. But it’s definitely 90′s alt-funk weirdness at its finest.

So yeah, they’ve been around a while. About 25 years, give or take. But this upcoming tour, which makes a stop November 7th at Bass Concert Hall, is Primus In 3D. Not-so-simply put, it’s “the band performing two sets in a unique 3D staging. Being that this is the first-ever traveling 3D enhanced live musical performance, this groundbreaking tour provides a one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience, further enhanced by the fact that every show will also feature Quad Surround Sound.” Simply put? It’s a Primus fan’s dream come true!

The trio’s keeping the visualizations and 3D imagery under a tight lid, but until then, you can get a taste of the tripped-out awesomeness Primus has to offer: here’s the group playing their classic “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

Don’t miss Primus in 3D at Bass Concert Hall November 7th. Tickets are on sale August 3rd. That’s tomorrow! Go here for more info and remember: when the crowd starts chanting “Primus Sucks!”, that’s a good thing, and feel free to join in!
