After releasing nine albums and 130 free tracks to music fans over the last five years, Adult Swim and Williams Street Records continues the 2013 Adult Swim Singles Program, with, “The Octagonal Stairway” by Washington D.C.-based grindcore masters Pig Destroyer. The song is available as a free download or streaming HERE.
Additionally, Pig Destroyer guitarist Scott Hull is this month’s featured guest on the brand new Decibel Magazine Podcast. In their first on location podcast, Decibel infiltrated the sordid underworld of Scott Hull‘s Visceral Sound studio to talk Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, the Decibel 100 show and much more. Check out the podcast HERE.
Pig Destroyer have been on the road this summer for a handful of festivals including Gwar-B-Q, Hopscotch Fest (with label-mates Inter Arma and ASG), Basillica Soundscape in Hudson, NY and the Housecore Horror Film Fest in Austin, TX. A complete list of dates can be viewed below.
Pig Destroyer recently released a never before heard EP entitled Mass &Volume. This EP is dedicated to the memory of Pat Egan a former Relapse employee and to the loving family he left behind. The EP is a Doom EP and the artwork was created by Arik Roper. The EP is available for purchase at http://patlapse.bandcamp.com/album/mass-volume. This is the only format that this EP is available in and all proceeds of this recording will be donated to the college fund of Pat Egan‘s daughter Katie.
Pig Destroyer released their fifth studio album Book Burner this past October on Relapse Records. Book Burner features 19 tracks with a return to the band’s raw, misanthropic sound.
