Reigning grindcore champions Pig Destroyer have revealed the title of their highly anticipated new album to be Book Burner. The band recently completed self-recording their razor-sharp fifth-full length and first album in over five years at guitarist Scott Hull‘s Visceral Sound Studios. Book Burner will see a October 23rd release via Relapse Records and features 19 tracks with a return to the band’s raw, misanthropic sound. Decibel Magazine has revealed the album’s art (created by Chris Taylor) and uploaded an in-studio clip documenting the recording process.
