Primal Scream Australian Tour 2012 – Meredith Sideshows

Written by Brayden Darke on August 29, 2012

Primal Scream will be returning to Australian shores this December to play a number of dates on the back of their appearance on the Meredith Music Festival 2012 lineup. The last time they were seen here, they performed their genre-defining classic album Screamadelica in full, but this time they’ll return to play all their classics and brand new material.

Now without bassist Mani, who left the band last year to reform The Stone Roses, Debbie Googe of My Bloody Valentine will take on the bass duties along with the other current members: Bobby Gillespie; guitarist, Andrew Innes; keyboardist, Martin Duffy; drummer, Darrin Mooney; and guitarist Barrie Cadogan.

With a career spanning four decades, they’ll be offering a setlist jam-packed full of hits, including Screamadelica: Movin’ on Up, Damaged, Come Together, Slip Inside This House, Loaded, Higher Than the Sun, 1994’s Give Out But Don’t Give Up (Jailbird, Rocks), 2000’s XTRMNTR (Swastika Eyes, Accelerator, Shoot Speed/Kill Light), 2006’s Riot City Blues (Country Girl) and new songs (2012, Relativity) plucked from sessions for their 10th studio album, set to be the follow-up to 2008’s Beautiful Future.

Frontman Bobby Gillespie has revealed that the band’s new album is close to completion and features input from Andrew Weatherall, David Holmes, producer Tom Elmhirst (Amy Winehouse, Adele) and My Bloody Valentine guitarist Kevin Shields. “No, it doesn’t sound anything like Screamadelica,” he told The Irish Times. “It has to be relevant to now. I’ve got something to say and we’re going to f—ing say it.”

Tickets go on sale Friday September 7.
