The High Sierra Music Festival, one of California's longest-running annual music festivals, is celebrating its 32nd year on July 4-7, 2024, in the golden Sierra hills of Quincy. Headliners this year include Ziggy Marley, Primus, and Greensky Bluegrass. They will be joined by a wide variety of bluegrass, jam, Americana, funk, folk, and worldbeat acts on multiple stages at the Plumas County Fairgrounds.

When Primus takes the stage, it's not just a concert—it's an odyssey through the whimsical, the bizarre, and the downright mind-bending. Hailing from the depths of musical experimentation since 1984, with their current lineup solidifying its cosmic synergy since 2003, Primus is a band that defies categorization and embraces the unconventional with gusto.

In an unexpected twist at the Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas, Primus turned a potential disaster into a stroke of rock 'n' roll luck. Coming off of a two-night sold-out run at Red Rocks in Colorado along their Sessanta Tour with Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, the band faced a new challenge when a snowstorm stranded their gear.

On April 20, 2024, Mercury Studios will exclusively release, on Record Store Day, a 3LP package, pressed on “Towelie-Blue” vinyl, of the South Park 25th Anniversary Concert. Recorded over two nights on August 9 and 10, 2022 at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado, this concert features performances from South Park creators Trey Parker & Matt Stone, along with Primus and Ween. Also included is a special performance of “Closer to The Heart” with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson from the band Rush.

Primus and Coheed And Cambria have announced that they will be teaming up this summer for an extensive 25-date Summer Tour, kicking off in Redding, CA on Friday, July 12th. The tour will be supported by Guerilla Toss, Too Many Zooz, and Fishbone, who will be opening for the headlining acts throughout the summer.

Sessanta, an untraditional tour that sees Puscifer, A Perfect Circle, and Primus joining forces, and sharing band members, is slated for April of 2024.

The Western U.S. outing is a resurrection, and expansion, of the 2014 Los Angeles event, Cinquanta, which was originally a one-time only celebration. Much like that fabled evening, which commemorated Maynard James Keenan’s landmark 50th birthday, Sessanta celebrates the Puscifer and A Perfect Circle frontman as he turns 60.

Primus, Tool’s Danny Carey & Justin Chancellor, and Queens Of The Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen have just released a live Video Of Tool’s classic song "Ænima.” The performance was shot this month at an intimate benefit concert at The Belasco in LA in support of their close friend, film director, screenwriter, and animator Jimmy Hayward, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment.


On April 17th, Primus will perform an intimate benefit concert at The Belasco in LA in support of their close friend, film director, screenwriter, and animator Jimmy Hayward, who is currently undergoing cancer treatment. Featuring Danny Carey and Justin Chancellor of Tool and surprise guests, the event will raise funds for Hayward and his family, as he continues to battle this invasive disease. Tickets are on-sale this Friday, March 24th at 10amPT.


Les Claypool’s Bastard Jazz will ring in the New Year with a two-show run at JaM Cellars Ballroom in Napa, CA on December 30th and 31st.

Third Man Records is excited to announce Vault Package #53, Primus: The Revenant Juke -- A Collection of Fables and Farce, featuring six colored 7" records -- the band's first 7" releases in their 30-plus years as a group -- with individual sleeve artwork, all housed in a custom telescoping box.
