The Primitives: March tour

The Primitives: ‘NEVER KILL A SECRET’ EP via Fortuna POP! – 7 March 2011 + March tour!

With their first new recordings since 1992, The Primitives are back with ‘Never Kill A Secret’, an EP to be released on Fortuna POP! in March 2011. With a new lease of life after successfully touring the UK in 2010, the band decided to write and record some new material. The four tracks on the new EP include the fuzzified girlpop stomper of the lead track “Rattle My Cage” and the cute little Velvets-y heart-melter ‘Never Kill A Secret’, along with two covers, Suzi Jane Hokom’s Lee Hazlewood-penned “Need All the Help I can Get” and Toni Basil’s Northern Soul classic ‘Breakaway’. March also sees the band embark on a full UK tour.

The band were reunited in 2009 by the untimely passing of their original bass player Steve Dullaghan, reforming to play a show in his memory later that year in their home town of Coventry; their first show together for 17 years. Bolstered by its success they went on to tour the UK in April 2010, receiving a rapturous response, followed by a headline slot at the Indietracks festival and shows in the US and Spain. They will be playing a headline tour in March 2011.
