While the individual members have released new music in various configurations in the past few years, it's been a while since we've heard new music from Prime Element. The last release from the act, formerly known as Three the Hard Way, came a few years back when Kamikazi Airlines picked up the group's excellent 2009 full-length Set In Stone. Glad to report, the guys -- A.V.I.U.S., Es Nine and Cysko Rokwell -- are back in Prime time.
The outfit has finished work on a new seven-track EP, Welcome to the Future, which has cover art from the estimable Delton Demarest. The EP, recorded and produced by Es Nine at House of Waxx studios (with additional production from Lazy Eyez and Shuko) and mastered by Steve Sundberg at FTM, is due for release on Saturday, November 2, on Prime Element's Bandcamp page.
The group, meanwhile, is celebrating the release of the record -- which features Toki Wright, Metty Dertmerchant of Sweatshop Union and Rhias from Air Dubai -- the night before at the Solution next Friday, November 1. We'll be catching up with the guys for a chat early next week. In the meantime, peep some snippets from Welcome to the Future above.
