THE PRIMALS, the L.A.-based punk/alternative rock band helmed by Darkest Hour’s John Henry, are delivering their début album this week.
‘All Love Is True Love‘ just arrived from Southern Lord Records this past Friday, September 7th, and is an album slightly outside of the label’s usual fare. THE PRIMALS possess an intoxicating knack for crafting fuzzy garage rock, rooted in 90s grunge, then delivering it via means of brilliant hook-laden, semi-pop punk music.
With obvious influences ranging between everything from Nirvana and Redd Kross to The Posies, the John Reis (Hot Snakes, Rocket From The Crypt) produced ‘All Love Is True Love‘ is a record that’s almost impossible not to enjoy on some level. You can take the record for a spin today, as we are sharing a full album stream of it below.
THE PRIMALS ‘All Love Is True Love‘ from Southern Lord is out NOW and available to purchase HERE.
Catch THE PRIMALS live at these upcoming shows:
Sept. 15 – El Cortez Safari Room – Brooklyn, NY
Nov. 17 – The Echo – L.A., CA
