Primus releasing 7 albums, EPs on vinyl

Each album available on black and limited edition colored LPs

Primus has teamed with Interscope/UMe for the upcoming worldwide release of seven essential albums and EPs from their storied catalog on 180-gram black vinyl and limited-edition color vinyl. Each title’s color vinyl edition is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide. 1993’s Pork Soda (2 LP) and 1997’s Brown Album (2 LP) will be released November 16th; 1995’s Tales From The Punchbowl (2 LP) and 1992’s Miscellaneous Debris (1 LP EP) will be released November 30th; and 1999’s Antipop (2 LP), 1998’s Rhinoplasty (2 LP), and 2003’s Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People (1 LP EP) will be released December 14th.

Two titles, Miscellaneous Debris and Rhinoplasty, are making their vinyl debuts with these releases, while the others are returning to vinyl after years of being out of print on LP. Five titles are newly remastered from their original analog tapes, and all the black and color vinyl packages include complimentary uncompressed WAV downloads for their complete audio. Tales From The Punchbowl has striking new cover art, and Rhinoplasty’s first ever vinyl editions feature an extra bonus track, added to the album for the first time: Primus’ recording of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.”

Stephen Marcussen mastered the albums and cut the new lacquers at Marcussen Mastering.
