Primitive Weapons

NYC’s own metallic hardcore four-piece Primitive Weapons played a hometown gig at Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus on May 9th, a show that was chock full of tunes from the band’s 2016 LP, The Future of Death, with tracks “Ashes or Paradise,” “The Electric Drama,” “Panopticon Blues,” “Night Eyes” and “Old Miami” roaring through the Greenpoint venue’s PA. “Transactional” off last year’s Surrender Yourself, “Quitters Anthem” and “Good Hunting” from 2012’s The Shadow Gallery, and the band’s 2011 single “Black Sheep and Prodigal Sons” rounded out the 40-minute set.

It seems like this past Vitus show was Primitive Weapons‘ last live gig, at least for now, as they’re not planning to hit the stage again anytime soon. If you missed out, we’ve got full photos from the night, including shots of great openers Thoughtcrimes, Netherlands and Bangladeafy, in the gallery below.
