Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Announce New Single, LP & Tour
‘Cake Of Light‘ is the first single taken from the forthcoming second album ‘King Of Cowards’ from Newcastle, UK’s Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs. It was premiered and championed by Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC 6Music and has also already received early airplay from Gideon Coe and BBC Radio One.
The period since Pigs’ Rocket Recordings 2017 debut Feed The Rats – a mighty tsunami of rancorous riffage and unholy abjection that wowed critics and wreckheads alike – has seen the band build on their incendiary live reputation far and wide, from the sweatiest of UK fleapits to illustrious festivals like Roskilde.
The Iggy-esque drive to dementia, Sabbath-esque squalor and Motörhead-style dirt may still be present and correct yet the songs are leaner, the longdrawn-out riff-fests sharpened into addictive hammer blows and the nihilistic dirges of yore alchemically transformed into an uplifting and inviting barrage of hedonistic abandon.
‘King of Cowards‘ is out 28 September on Rocket Recordings. Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have also announced a tour, with two album release shows set for 27 and 28 September. Find the full dates below.
