Los Angeles-based rock trio THE PRIMALS – founded by vocalist/guitarist John Henry (also of Darkest Hour), bassist Chad Fjerstad (formerly of Dead To Fall), and drummer Andrew Black (formerly of The Explosion) – has shared a new video for the track “Hello Cruel World,” through a premiere at Louder Than War. The new video hits as the band announces November tour dates with Cave In and Helms Alee.
“Hello Cruel World” is found on THE PRIMALS‘ debut album All Love Is True Love, out now on Southern Lord. Featuring ten infectious tracks produced by John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt, Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes) and completed with cover art by Laura K. Giron, the band’s fuzzy execution is equal slabs ripping guitar heaviness and infectious pop sensibility on All Love Is True Love. Concocted by a seasoned group of thrashers with a historical backbone in the D.C. punk community, the disintegrated spirit of grunge rises from the ashes, revitalized in a new light.
The footage from THE PRIMALS‘ “Hello Cruel World” video was gathered during the band’s debut visit to Europe earlier this year.
