Primus reissue ‘Suck on This’ on red wax (exclusive variant), expand tour

Primus’ 1989 classic debut, Suck on This is being repressed on ruby red vinyl which is exclusively available in our stores and on pre-order now.

Frontman and bass legend Les Claypool recently reflected on the first time this record was pressed:

We didn’t have the money to go into the studio and make a proper record, but we had all these fans, locally. We were actually pretty popular in the area. I borrowed three thousand dollars from my father, who didn’t have a lot of money. I said, “Dad, we have enough fans, and if we press a thousand records, I think we could sell them all!” So it was this live album, and we pressed up a thousand records, and we sold all of them. I took that money, paid him back, and then pressed up a thousand more and sold those. And then we made a thousand more and sold those. We sold the records, and he got his money back.

Wise investment, dad, as Primus obviously not only were able to pay you back, but have gone on to sell many more records and tickets in their still-going-strong 30+ year career.

For their upcoming tour, they’re playing Rush’s classic A Farewell to Kings in full, and they just added even more dates to that trek entitled the ‘A Tribute to Kings’ tour. Wolfmother open the tour, which also includes The Sword on many dates, and newly-added shows include Las Vegas and Cedar Rapids, IA. The tour hits the NYC area on 9/25 at Stone Pony in Asbury Park and 9/28 at Beacon Theatre. All dates are listed below.
