Primate

Despite being the brainchild of Bill Kelliher of Mastodon and Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth, Atlanta's Primate is something entirely different than than you might expect the sum of its parts to be. Drawing from everything from grindcore to d-beat and even Black Flag, the band's recent Draw Back a Stump is a fascinating departure from these metallic veterans.

Primate is preparing to re-release 2011's Draw Back a Stump via Relapse Records on July 3rd (preorder it). The re-issue will feature bonus tracks in addition to the previous material, all of which you can stream for the first time below. So far no dates to speak of for this grind crew, but we'll let you know if that changes.

And I'll keep waiting. I have no job to go to. No friends to make plans with. I've got nothing but time. So, I'm still waiting.

11:04 you can claim you have a job all you want.
You can claim anything when you're anonymous.
I doubt you really have a job, but I'll play along with you Mr. Still Waiting.

Oh yes, we're all so impressed with your high-powered job that allows you time to comment on Brooklyn Vegan. We're just stupid kielbasas next to big smart, wage earnin' you.

Please, this is the last time I'm asking, are these or are these not the hedge fund managers you spoke of?

I need to know. So come on guys, seriously, stop fooling around and answer me. Which, if any members of this band are also working as hedge fund managers.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2012 11:27 AM

c'mon whitey, take a guess. i know listening to skrillex all day has done irreparable damage to your synapses, but you can at least make a guess. us bratwursts don't need to hold your hand...

The guy on the far left actually has a MS in Economics from Columbia and is a prop trader at SAC Capital.

nah that tub of shit is probably a line cook somewhere making $10hr.

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2012 11:43 AM

Thank you for the encouragment 11:33. And the advice too. I probably should lighten up on my Skrillex dosage. But anyway, here goes. I think the thrid guy from the left is the hedge fund manager. What do you say Still Waiting? I think I got it right, right?

Posted by Anonymous | June 27, 2012 11:45 AM

Sure it's a "re" release, but given the band only pressed 1,000 copies AND this has three more tracks than the original AND a different rhythm guitarist.....AND really, how many people have even heard the original release given they put it out themselves....this is pretty much THE release.
And a money grab?! Seriously? I'm fairly certain those fat fucks have regular (non-hedge fund manager) jobs. Well, ok, maybe Bill doesn't have a regular job being in Mastodon and all but the rest of em aren't getting rich off of this!

Finally a band that actually looks tough on this website and not like f-ing Duckie from Pretty in Pink.

I would let these dudes have sex with me anyday.

11:43, yous sure is a mean one. Cut him down real quick. You sures knows people. You're right, we sausage are all nuthin but a buncha one-dimensional folk. You sure is a smart one. I'd kinda oughta hope ta be as smart as you one day.

^yes, I'm so smart I didn't doodle all over myself in permanent ink like an attention starved four year old.

11:27 I'm thinking that bloated fuck might be a teamster or something.

grindcore really should have a 13-18 year old age limit for listeners. anyone younger likely risks trauma and anyone older is, well, pathetic.

No 3:11, I know you're not used to women talking to you, it's just that, based on your wise words, I know you'd make a great dad. So, please; sow your seed in my womb. We'll make sure our child listens to nothing but NPR and Fiona Apple. We're better than everyone, especially those dumb sausages.

Black Flag, really? I'm not trying to shit on this but where is the similarity in 'this' and Black Flag? I guess they do say 'drawing from' but.. Christ, pick a better way to describe a band than through shitty comparisons. (start listening to Black Flag - My War: yeah I'm not hearing it?)

Maybe 'Redneck, punk, inspired, hardcore' is a fair description of Primate? I only say Redneck because of that fucking hat. You're not a cowboy dude & you're sure as shit not Al Jourgensen.
