Primus will tour the United States in 2012.

Primus has announced dates for an extensive North American tour in 2012. More than half the shows are billed as “An Evening With Primus,” at which they’ll play two full sets in lieu of inviting an opening act. Hey, you gotta do something to please the fans when you sport a back catalog as extensive as Primus’. On dates where they do decide to share the bill, Gogol Bordello and Fishbone are on board for select shows.

Primus is touring in support of their latest album, Green Naugahyde, and they stopped by Fallon recently to perform “Lee Van Cleef.” Watch that performance below (and don’t miss the web bonus of their classic “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” as well).
