Primal Scream Unveil Mystery Bassist

Primal Scream Unveil New 'Mystery' Bassist -

Primal Scream have revealed unknown musician, Simone Butler as their new bassist. 

Following the departure of longtime member Mani, who has returned to the Stone Roses, the bass position was temporally filled by My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe. However, it has now been announced that Butler will now join the Screamadelica rockers full time.

Little is known about the new bassist, and Primal Scream representatives have no further information at present.

Just last month Gillespie revealed that the band are planning to release a new album in early 2013 which would feature "modern rock'n'roll".

Gillespie said of the new record,

"The songwriting has got better! Live we're a guitar rock'n'roll band but when we make records... it would boring if we just made guitar records, we've got our own way of doing things. It's Primal Scream music."

The as-yet-untitled album will mark band's 10th studio outing and will follow up their 2008 studio effort 'Beautiful Future'.
