Primal Scream releasing new singles comp, ‘Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll,’ touring


Scottish group Primal Scream have been together for over 30 years, having dabbled in indiepop, jangly psychedelica, Stonesy rock, tripped out dance music, and noise, and have worked with Kevin Shields, Kate Moss, Sky Ferreira and more over the course of their career. That course will be tracked across a two-volume singles collection, titled Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll, which will be out May 24. Volume 1 goes from their debut single, “Velocity Girl,” through 2000’s “Kill All Hippies”; while Volume 2 starts with “Accelerator” and goes through “100% or Nothing” from 2016’s Chaosmosis.

Both volumes are available separately as a double LP, and they’re all collected onto a double-disc CD. Pre-orders are available, including some deluxe packages with posters and copies signed by main man Bobby Gillespie.

Primal Scream are on tour this year, but so far they’ve only announce UK and European shows, including an appearance at Primavera Sound. All dates are listed below.

Last year, Primal Scream released the original version of their 1994 album Give Out But Don’t Give Up which they made at Memphis’ Ardent Studios with legendary producer Tom Dowd and the Muscle Shoals band…which never saw the light of day. You can watch a BBC documentary about it, below.
