Summoning THE PRIMALS Debut Album

Hello, everyone!

Luxpheras here, bringing you news from Yamada (no, not Foxclon's pug--another Yamada! This Yamada is in charge of publicity for music publication here at SE!)

I'm sure we're all eagerly awaiting the upcoming release of Patch 4.3, but our favorite rock band THE PRIMALS have an exciting new release as well. Their self-titled album, "THE PRIMALS," comes out tomorrow!

You may have heard THE PRIMALS at Fan Fest, or on "From Astral to Umbral" or "Duality," but this album will be their very first independent album. How exciting!

Release Date: May 16, 2018
Price: $32.99 USD
CD format / 18 Tracks

The album opens with a rock rendition of Primal Judgment, and continues with relentless energy--so much so that Sound Director Masayoshi Soken says, "You'll want to take a break around the 7th song."

You can check out the track list and listen to a clip of each track here!

If that wasn't enough to get you hyped, immerse yourself even further in some of the tracks from the album with these official music videos for "Under the Weight," "Rise," and "Locus"!

Under the Weight



This album is packed to the brim with high-energy rock to get you pumped, and then finishes off with a soothing number: "Oblivion Never Let It Go Version", where, as Yamada says, "our sweat will turn into tears."

No really, I don't think I can listen to this track without crying... Just listen, you'll understand... ; ;

Make sure to pick up the album tomorrow and give it a listen, enjoying every ounce of energy THE PRIMALS have poured into one disc!

With their first album release imminent, THE PRIMALS are also preparing to take the stage once again for their first live tour "THE PRIMALS Zepp Tour 2018 - Trial By Shadow - "!
