Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs

Motorik beats, Psychedelic noise, Heavy rock. Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are a five piece outfit based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.



'He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man', as a sage wiser and more debauched than most of us once remarked. Such is the headspace of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, whose animalistic headspace is set out by their very moniker, yet who have wasted little time in creating an almighty psychic charge that has blown minds and summoned bedlam in sweat-drenched venues across the UK's underground and beyond.

'It's a pretty perfect balance of obnoxiousness, ridiculousness, intensity and theatrics, and somewhere within that spectrum is where our music sits too.' reckons Matthew Baty, whose vein-popping onstage performances and cathartic bellow form a primary ingredient of the Newcastle five-piece's devastating live shows. 'We truly love the emotionally dark bands that we are in (Ommadon, Blown Out, Khunnt). Pigs however provided an opportunity to do something different, something that is fun with a different kind of intensity.'

The band have gigged relentlessly with kindred spirits including The Cosmic Dead and Luminous Bodies, not to mention gracing festivals like Portugal's Reverence, Denmark's Roskilde and all the major UK festivals with their feral attack.

After Feed The Rats, the overwhelming first album the band created for Rocket Recordings - equal parts righteous repetition, bludgeoning brute force and Sabbathian squalor - the band will be back with a new album still on Rocket next September 28th, and a new series of shows.

Beware you all, as these psychic omnivores bring seven times the joy, seven times the pain, seven times the dementia and deliverance.
