The So-Cal rockers formed in high school and released their debut album, Frizzle Fry, in 1990. The album earned them a recording contract and the opening spot on Jane's Addiction's national tour. They released their major label debut, Sailing the Seas of Cheese, and earned a Platinum plaque for their efforts. The album was instrumental in beginning the era of the alt-rock format and was hailed as an instant classic. In 1993, Primus tour dates were scheduled as the headlining act on the Lollapalooza festival.
Other Primus hit albums include Pork Soda (1993) and Tales From the Punchbowl (1995), which were certified Platinum and Gold respectively. Since hitting the mainstream in the '90s, Primus has continued to tour and record. Primus tour dates were scheduled on several high-profile tours including the Family Values Tour and Ozzfest in 1999.
