The Primitives Ready First New Material in 20 Years, Book UK Tour
Published Dec 07, 2010The Primitives haven't released an album since 1991, but the British indie pop group are still remembered for their 1988 hit, "Crash," which frequently pops up in movie soundtracks and as a cover song. Now, the recently reunited group are planning to release a new EP, Never Kill a Secret.
The new EP will be released this spring via Fortuna Pop! and will contain four songs: "Rattle My Cage," "Need All the Help I Can Get," "Never Kill a Secret" and "Breakaway." In a previous interview with Slicing Up Eyeballs, guitarist Paul Court said that "Never Kill a Secret" is a "cute little heart melter," while "Rattle My Cage" is a "fuzzified girl-pop stomper."
The EP will be available on seven-inch or as a digital download. There's no confirmed release date, but it will likely be out by March, when the band hit the road for a nine-date UK tour. See the schedule below.
