release new single “Hell’s Teeth”
and share animated video
Album, Viscerals out now on Rocket Recordings
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs share another animated video for their latest single, “Hell’s Teeth” made by filmmaker, Lucy Dyson. The track is the third single taken from their riff-heavy third album Viscerals which came out in April on Rocket Recordings.
The gritty track is perfectly bought to life in the new video. The animation is as bold and unique as “Hell’s Teeth”. The scale of the track is monumental, heavy riffs and harmony at its core.
Lucy Dyson says of the video: “When I first heard this song I had the vision that is now the video – just watch, I’m sure you’ll agree! It was so much fun to create visuals for this ultimately positive song carried along on a riff that sounds like a straight pipe from hell. It’s a heavy rock song that is pretty funny in tone, so I focused on the humour in the lyrics to make these rock monsters that actually seem like nice dudes – like metalheads, they look scary but they always turn out to be chill bros – they just wanna rock together in peace.”
She adds “As apocalyptic as the world may seem, working together, maybe we can still enjoy the ride, (though how we all miss the communion of a big sweaty rock concert!), for the time being, we can at least blast loud music in our cars. Speaking of, the car in this video is a homage to my parent’s 1970s kelly green Ford Falcon, in which as a child, my formative taste for rock n roll was made.”
Vocalist Matt Baty explains: “‘Hell’s Teeth’ is an ode to eccentrics, dreamers and outsiders. It’s for those who are delirious, those who are bewildered, those who are at odds with the foreboding world that surrounds them but against the tide, find the energy to express themselves and support each other with great love, integrity, empathy and passion. Let’s rock!”
Pigsx7 have effortlessly broadened their horizons without sacrificing one iota of their trademark eccentricity, and the personality of this band has never been stronger. Viscerals is their most far-reaching album yet, its ability to get down to the nitty-gritty of the human condition is implicit from its title outwards.
The band’s 2020 sold-out tour dates have been postponed, but they have been raiding the vault for something special to release towards the end of this year.
