Announce U.S/ EU/ UK Tour Dates

“Land Of Sleeper” Out February 17th on Rocket Recordings

Newcastle, UK-based group Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs has shared a new video for their latest single “Ultimate Hammer.” They will release their new album Land of Sleeper on February 17th, the album is available for preorder now.

 Land of Sleeper, their fourth record in a decade of riot and rancour, is testimony to this: the sound of a band not so much reinvigorated as channelling a furious energy, which only appears to gather momentum as the band’s surroundings spin on their axis.

Following the album’s first single “Mr Medicine” – the audio equivalent of sticking a fork in plug socket – comes single number two, and album opener: the coruscating “Ultimate Hammer”.“Everything at the moment feels like it’s moving at one hell of a speed. Momentous events pass by in the blink of an eye while we try to keep our heads steady on a planet spinning roughly 1,000 miles per hour,” elaborates vocalist Matt Baty. “Maybe it’s always been this way but it sure is hard not to feel dizzy. What a time to be alive.”

Ultimate Hammer delves straight into the depths of this almighty and vast landscape that Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have perfected with such immense complexities and mighty hypnotic hooks. Another ambitious arrangement that escalates with energy, aggression, and this unruly fuzz. This new album is already destined for greatness, the tracks shared so far capture the best of this band. Once again Pigsx7 have perfected their ability to produce such monumental, mammoth creations, ripping through their expressive landscapes filled with obscure textures, heavy passages, and far-reaching vocals that capture your full attention.
