New Noise: The Rise of PRIMITIVE RACE

PRIMITIVE RACE, an international Industrial supergroup created by Lords of Acid manager and producer Chris Kniker, will make their long-awaited recorded debut on June 19th with the worldwide release of the Long In The Tooth remix EP on Metropolis Records.

Billed as “PIG vs. Primitive Race” and boasting nearly 50 minutes of music, the EP features tracks by Knicker and singer/lyricist Raymond Watts (PIG, ex-KMFDM) remixed by Praga Khan (Lords of Acid), Graham Crabb (Pop Will Eat Itself), Mary Byker (Gaye Bikers on Acid, Pigface, Apollo 440), Mark Brooks (Warlock Pinchers, Foreskin 500, Night Club), AK1200, Army of The Universe and Bells Into Machines. Other contributors include guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, Tricky, Mob Research, The Mission, Gary Numan) and co-producer Erie Loch (LUXT, Blownload, Exageist). Long In The Tooth will be available in digital, CD and streaming formats.

With Long In The Tooth, PRIMITIVE RACE finally reveal their music and intriguing cast of characters to the world. Initially launched in the spring of 2013 under a shroud of secrecy, the closed-mouthed nature of the project caused nearly two year's worth of rumors and speculation among music fans. With Long In The Tooth finally lifting the veil (or the paper bags, which some members have been known to wear on social media networks at times to mask their identities), PRIMITIVE RACE will continue their public arrival with a self-titled full-length album scheduled for a July/August release on Metropolis. Additional contributors slated to appear include Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry, Danzig), Dave "Rave" Ogilvie (Skinny Puppy) and Kourtney Klein (Combichrist, Nitzer Ebb).

No mere side project, PRIMITIVE RACE is finally ready to unleash the full power of what they've been concocting in the shadows for far too long.

As Watts says of Long In the Tooth, "Due to fact that we all seem to be swamped by noise of all qualities from all comers... I decided to hook up with one of the noisiest fuckers I know... Mr. Chris Kniker... who hopefully can shout louder than everyone else out there and get this EP heard above the general generic din of dross in which we drown."
