Bobby Gillespie and his gang of drunk addled revolutionaries have got themselves signed to the evil empire and added an extra date to their uk tour..
5 labels have been brawling to sign PRIMAL SCREAM in the USA. They've gone for Epic/Sony (not a huge leap considering Creation was part of Sony).
This week they kick off their first UK tour since the 'XTRMNTR' shows two years ago. They just finished a sold-out 2 week tour of Japan, where they apparently "blew away the audiences with high octane cuts from their acclaimed album, 'EVIL HEAT'," according to their press monkeys anyway. The tour dates are..
6TH LONDON Brixton Academy
7th LONDON Brixton Academy +BRMC
9th LIVERPOOL Royal Court
10th BIRMINGHAM Academy
12th SHEFFIELD Octagon
13th MANCHESTER Academy
14th MANCHESTER Academy *new*

17th GLASGOW Barrowlands
