The Primitives release 4-song ‘New Thrills’ EP, plan rare U.S. dates in June

Reunited indie-pop outfit The Primitives have released a new four-song EP titled New Thrills, and will help promote it later this month with a pair of U.K. shows in London and Manchester followed, in early June, by a trio or rare U.S. dates.

The group, which only has performed in the U.S. a couple times since reuniting in 2010, is set to play SF PopFest in San Francisco on June 2, followed by Los Angeles on June 4 and San Diego on June 6.

The Primitives already have released New Thrills via streaming services, and a 12-vinyl edition is due out in the U.K. on May 29. Since reuniting, the group — featuring original members Tracy Tracy and Paul Court, plus longtime drummer Tig Williams — has released a covers record and new studio album.
