Cover shot – PRIMITIVE

Melbourne’s very own PRIMITIVE are back with their latest offering and title track ‘With the Rats and Snakes‘ taken from their upcoming EP.

“It was a conscious effort to learn from our previous efforts, see what we could expand on, and introduce new elements to draw closer to perfecting ‘our sound’. The title track/first single perfectly encompasses what we’ve done before, and what we’ve recently discovered in the writing room.” – Frontman/guitarist Tim Gauci


PRIMITIVE do not limit themselves to a particular sub-genre, creating their own brand of abrasive yet memorable riffs, solos, grooves and hooks. We had the pleasure of covering PRIMITIVE pre-pandemic when they supported the CAVALERA BROTHERS on the Return, Beneath, Arise tour.

With the Rats and Snakes releases worldwide on August 12th, get your hands on pre-orders and merch here.
The title track is accompanied by a cinematic video directed and edited by NJV Media, check it out below and stay up to date with PRIMITIVE on social media.
