Former SKINLAB Axeman Resurfaces In PRIMATE

Former SKINLAB guitarist Mike Roberts has resurfaced in a brand new San Francisco Bay Area metal act called PRIMATE. The group, which performed its first show on December 1st, is completed by bassist Rob Berri (ex-DECEIVED, LEVERAGE), drummer Eric Ruel (ex-MOJAVE GREEN), and vocalist Chad Dinan (ex-KAGE). According to Roberts, if you like the first SKINLAB album then you'll definitely like this, too!!! I'm still the same demented freak, writing the heaviest, most catchy sh.t that I possibly can!...which is only made possible by the rest of the psycho nut jobs in the band also giving 200%. [Chad] has a heavy, melodic [singing] style with a lot of catchy hooks....also Rob and I both nail some brutal backing vocals. We will be recording over the next couple of months, so there will be a disc available soon! If anyone would like to contact us for more info, e-mail me at [email protected] PRIMATE's upcoming shows include the following:

Jan. 25 Livermore, CA @ Pine St. Grill (w/SWARM)
Jan. 26 Concord, CA @ The Bourbon Street Bar And Grill
