Primus Goes All Willy Wonka with Their New Album

If you remember the story of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (or, for you youngsters who are too young for the 1974 classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from 2005), you’ll be familiar with the notion the Golden Ticket. Five such tickets were secreted amongst the millions of chocolate bars distributed throughout the world. If you were lucky enough to find one of them, you received an invitation to visit the famous Chocolate Factory.

Primus’ new album is called Primus and the Chocolate Factory and, yes, is offering the same sort of thing. Buy a copy of the album and if your copy contains a Golden Ticket, you will win free tickets to every Primus show for…well for as long as they’re a Primus or as long as you’re alive.

Sample a track from the album.
