The Skinny: Denver blackened doom heathens, Primitive Man, will release a special 12″ EP next month via Relapse Recordings. Fittingly titled, Home Is Where The Hatred Is, the four track slab was tracked at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Catheter, Cobalt) and delivers thirty-one heinous minutes of nihilistic, feedback-doused audio atrocities brimming with gnarled riff torrents and enough fury to level a nation. Home Is Where The Hatred Is will be limited to 750 copies on black standard gram wax and 250 copies on silver standard gram wax.

In related news, Primitive Man will wage war upon the US this Spring with a short run of live abrasions which will include an appearances at this year’s Maryland Death Fest. Slated to commence on May 16th in Omaha and accompanied by Canadian grindcore perpetrators, Wake, on select dates, the band will consume ten cities with their traumatic odes, with the run coming to a halt in Colorado Springs on May 29th. The trek follows the band’s UK takeover with Sea Bastard.
