We’ve got some fantastic news for all you fabulous Les Claypool-lovin’ weirdos out there, Primus has announced they’ll be touring with the funk metal monsters of Clutch this summer. The joint 24-stop tour that’ll take them from one side of the U.S. to the other.

“Touring with Primus is something that Clutch has wanted to do for ages,” Clutch’s Neil Fallon said in a statement. “And we’ve heard from countless fans that have wanted to see that bill as well. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to finally go out with Primus this summer. Good times! We hope to see you there!”

Kicking off in Charlotte, North Carolina on July 17, the “Evening with Primus and Clutch” tour will wind through the Northeast and Midwest in late July and then make its way west in August, ending with a show in Berkeley, California on Aug. 18.

Primus will be touring in support of their latest release, 2014’s Primus & The Chocolate Factory, their far-out (and somewhat demented) reimagining of the soundtrack to “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Clutch will be showing off their most recent work as well, 2015’s Psychic Warfare.

Primus is also booked to play several U.S. dates this spring and will embark on a brief European tour early in the summer before joining up with Clutch in July.
