Primal Scream

Bobbie Gillespie will bring Primal Scream back to the West Coast of the U.S. for the first time in four years this October when the band plays four concerts in four California cities — San Francisco, Los Angeles, Pomona and Solana Beach — in support its 10th studio album, More Light, which was released earlier this year.

It’s not clear whether the band, which currently finds Gillespie joined by Andrew Innes, Martin Duffy, Darrin Mooney, Barrie Cadogan and Simone Butler, plans any other North American appearances this year.

The David Holmes-produced More Light features guest appearances by Robert Plant, My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields and Mark Stewart of The Pop Group.

Of the record, Gillespie says:

“I wanted to convey coming out of a dark time and into a good one . . . We always knew it wasn’t going to be a straight ahead, balls to the wall, high energy rock ‘n’ roll, two guitars, bass and drum record. It’s sophisticated, layered, cinematic and orchestral; obviously working with Holmes we were hoping to make a record more in keeping with that vision.”
