The band Primus will have a fill in drummer for some upcoming concert dates according to Rolling Stone. Tool drummer Danny Carey will bang the drums for some September concert dates while the band's regular drummer, Tim "Herb" Alexander recovers from open heart surgery after suffering a heart attack last month.
Cary will be joining the Primus at the Riot Fest gigs in Chicago and Denver, in addition to an after party at the Chicago's Concord Music Hall on September 13th.
Tool and Primus already share a connection being that Alexander has performed with Tool vocalist Maynard Keenan in the bands Puscifer and A Perfect Circle. Alexander is expected to be back behind the drums for Primus on their upcoming the Chocolate Factory tour which begins in October.
Primus will be releasing their first album with Alexander on drums in almost 20 years, when the band plan to release Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble on October 21.
Tool is also working on their follow-up 2006 album, 10,000 Days. Earlier this march, Tool dispensed rumors about the new album releasing this year. It seems that the biggest obstacle releasing the newest record is about an ongoing lawsuit with an insurance company, according to Rolling Stone.
Tool members have stated that they have material written for the new album and are whittling down the titles to go on the record.
Currently, the closest that Primus will be playing near the bay area is on Friday, November 21 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
