Third Studio Album On 180g Metallic Gold Vinyl 2LP!

Newly Remastered From Original Analog Tapes! 

Primus' platinum-selling third studio album is reissued on double LP with a new 2018 remaster from the original analog tapes, presented in its original packaging. Features one of the band's biggest singles – "My Name Is Mud". First time on vinyl since 1996! 180g Metallic Gold vinyl.

"Brimming with pop culture references (from MacBeth to Deliverance, Jerry Garcia to James Brown) and boasting a darker tone (murder, suicide, depression), Pork Soda further demonstrated that Primus are more than capable of walking down multiple paths at the same time. Some of their interviews accredit that to the stress of touring for two years on the back of their massive major debut, but Les himself has said that that wasn’t necessarily the case: 'Pork Soda was the first straight-up Ler, Herb, and Les record. Even Sailing the Seas of Cheese had some songs that Todd and Jay Lane had helped with. It’s a little darker, heavier. That was the beginning of our really DIY recording. We recorded that in our rehearsal space, and we had our sound man do it. That album went platinum, but it took four years. We were always the slow-burn guys; we were the guys called 'the catalog band.' We didn’t come out and Pearl Jam-it and sell a gazillion records right out the gate.'" - Consequence Of Sound

"Pork Soda is the exact opposite of what people want from a soda these days. It's got all the cholesterol, all the calories." - Les Claypool
