One of the most pioneering grindcore acts to come out of the US, Pig Destroyer are more than just a national treasure. At last there is not only new material on the horizon but a new album is confirmed for 2018.
Currently it has been five years since the band released their landmark Book Burner. Now, JR Hayes and Scott Hull et al will be returning for a brand new slab of brutality. The as yet untitled record will be tracked over at Hull’s own studio Visceral Sound Studios. Expected for a Summer 2018 release; I would imagine this is going to be one of the biggest releases of the year. What is so unique about Pig Destroyer and arguably one of the reasons I would imagine it takes them so long to write new material is the form of the metallic haiku’s that Hayes comes up with.
Not to mention the skull shattering guitar from Hull and the battering from the rest of the band. The members have also announced new dates as well which are as follows :
Dec 07 Los Angeles, CA The Regent
Dec 08 San Diego, CA Brick By Brick
Dec 09 Oakland, CA Metro Operahouse
Feb 23 2018 Garwood, NJ Crossroads
Feb 24 2018 Long Island, NY Obnoxious Noise Fest
May 26 2018 Baltimore, MD Maryland Deathfest 2018
I wonder given their appearance at Maryland Deathfest and potentially all the summer festival tours they could be in with the chance of playing if they might release their record in June? For now it’s just speculation but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear any news!
