Formed from the ashes of Collective Responsibility in late 2009, Primeval Soup started jamming in a squat in Brighton, UK. After a brief period as a 4-piece the band shifted to a 3-piece. They played a handful of shows in early 2010 under various names but came to settle on Primeval Soup in early spring. Playing an energetic mix of punk, ska and progressive rock their first bunch of songs were a chaotic mix of these genres, which can to remind bands such as: CRASS, Conflict, Oi Polloi or Citizen Fish, to mention a few ones. In the spring of 2015 the band underwent a line-up change seeing Twiggy now solely doing vocals with Toby picking up the guitar, long time drummer Joe moving on to play with Kilnaboy in Wales and being replaced by Jim. This shuffle has continued to add to a more diverse sound and acceptance into the small non-corporate/free festival scene in the UK with regular appearances at Alchemy, Surplus, Dirty Weekend and many others. Tours accross northern Europe and regular jaunts to Holland and France have helped the band gain recognition outside of England. A new studio album called ‘To The Great Calamity Of The Inhabitants’ was recorded in the Summer of 2016 and is the first recording with the new line-up. It is due for digital release in October 2016 and vinyl and CD release in early 2017.Discogs , Lastfm , Download , Facebook , Myspace
