"Hopefully there'll be a new Primitives release pretty soonish," guitarist Paul Court posted. "We've been in the studio recently having fun with vintage fuzz and marimba."
"A couple of brand new songs have been recorded," Court continued. "A cute little heart-melter called 'Never Kill a Secret' -- imagine the Carpenters gatecrashing the 'Banana' album, and 'Rattle My Cage' -- a fuzzified girl-pop stomper."
The Primitives returned to live work in the fall of 2009. In April, the band embarked on a full UK tour, before touching down in Brooklyn, N.Y. in May for a one-off US gig at the Bell House. As Slicing Up Eyeballs reports, the group has a pair of one-off shows currently confirmed for September.
The announcement of the new material defies Court's admission to Spinner earlier this year that the reformation was about "nostalgia" and wasn't intended to be "a full-scale reunion." Either way, the Primitives are back in circulation and aging hipsters can't help but feel all tingly inside.
