Raw, visceral and aggressive pretty much sums up the Philly based PRIMATIVES and their sound. The no-frills four-piece grunge-punk group bring the energy through memorable guitar melodies, fast paced driving rhythms, catching lyrics and their own blend of old school punk rock. PRIMATIVES evoke their musical influences of NIRVANA, QUEENS OF THE STONEAGE and GREEN DAY in their music, of course without forgetting to include the grunge attitude. PRIMATIVES’ music has been acclaimed to be hard, loud and enough to piss off your mom! Formed in 2012, PRIMATIVES came to be from longtime friends Kyle Ranshaw, Dave Harvey III and Andy Buch whom would be later joined by James Berardi in 2013. PRIMATIVES released their first self-titled EP in late 2014 which confirmed the path for the group. Since the band’s debut, they’ve been playing live in support of the release and receiving excellent praise. The bands hard work and determination landed PRIMATIVES a slot on the EXTREME MANAGEMENT GROUP INC. management roster in 2017 alongside well-known acts such as Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, Origin, Rings of Saturn, Threat Signal and many others. PRIMATIVES has a lot in store for 2018 and won’t let anything get in their way.
