The gap isn’t as wide as it was when Primus first reemerged with Green Naugahyde after their 12-year hiatus from Anti-Pop. But, three years is still enough time to say “Guess who's come back for more...” Primus have just released their 8th studio album Primus and The Chocolate Factory with The Fungi Ensemble.

Polish video game developers Techland have now had a taste of zombie-driven success with Dead Island so it's only right that they venture out into similar territory with the long-awaited Dying Light.
