Newcastle, UK-based group Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have shared a new live video session filmed with KEXP in Seattle. Filmed during their recent U.S. tour in support for their acclaimed new album ‘Land Of Sleeper,’ the session provides a front row seat to the group’s unhinged and undeniable performance style. Watch the KEXP live session via YouTube below.
“KEXP was a real bucket list moment for us,” notes guitarist Adam Ian Sykes. “It was such a pleasure to be invited to record a session, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.”
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs recently released videos for the coruscating Ultimate Hammer, a high-octane sonic ride that melds classic riffage with the group’s predilection for offbeat chaos, and Mr Medicine, the audio equivalent of sticking a fork in plug socket. They also have released a blistering live performance video of the track Terror’s Pillow.
“This is an H. R. Giger painting of an album: all muscular, misshapen forms that look all the more strange—and perhaps even a little beautiful—the closer you look.” – Pitchfork
“Pigx7 have managed to sharpen their uncompromising combo of Sabbath-esque riffs and experimental leanings into their most easily digestible – and perhaps best – album yet” – Clash
“An eight-song behemoth that pushes their sound further into doomy recesses, spaced-out drone and eye-bulging fury” – Guitar.com
“…Seems to soundtrack a continuing descent into psychosis.” – Uncut
‘Land of Sleeper’ is the heavy-psych/garage-rock band’s fourth studio album and follows 2020’s Viscerals, which Under The Radar described as a “sense bludgeoning amalgamation of metal, punk, and experimental noise at its most brutal,” while Louder declared it “Utterly enthralling.” Kerrang writes, “melding the fuzzed-up, stripped-back muscle of heavyweights like Black Sabbath and Motörhead to progressive sludginess, then pouring on a generous helping of the wryly abstract humor of IDLES, this third album is a strange, unruly offering.”
Whether dwelling in the realm of dreams or nightmares, the primordial drive of the band is more powerful than ever. ‘Land of Sleeper,’ their fourth record in a decade of riot and rancor, is testimony to this: the sound of a band not so much reinvigorated as channeling a furious energy, which only appears to gather momentum as the band’s surroundings spin on their axis.
