Future Primitive is the fifth studio album by Australian alternative rock band The Vines. It was released on 3 June 2011.

Background[edit]

The majority of the album was recorded at Studios 301, Sydney, Australia during February and March 2010 with producer Christopher Colonna of The Bumblebeez. Additional recording and production touch-ups occurred throughout the preceding year (2010–early 2011) whilst the band shopped the album to potential record labels, as they were without a label at the time having financed the recording sessions themselves. The band signed to Sony Music Australia for the release.

Lead track "Gimme Love" is the opening track of The Inbetweeners Movie.

"Black Dragon" and "Goodbye" are used in the opening titles of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
