Newcastle’s Pigs x7 have announced date at The Shipping Forecast on November 30 in support new album King of Cowards.
The new album, released on Rocket Recordings, is out September 28 with the Liverpool gig ably assisted by support act Mesange, comprising Liverpool duo Agathe Max and Luke Mawdsley.
Building on the momentum this band has built since their January 2017 debut Feed The Rats, this opus sees them entering a new phase as a sleeker and still more dangerous swineherd.
The Iggy-esque drive to dementia, Sabbath-esque squalor and Motörhead-style dirt may still be present and correct, yet the songs are leaner, the long-drawn-out riff-fests sharpened into addictive hammer blows and the nihilistic dirges of yore alchemically transformed into an uplifting and inviting barrage of hedonistic abandon.
They’re promising the release of a clutch of singles as well as their upcoming debut EP.
The band have dates at Liverpool’s Shout About It Festival, Y Not Festival, and a gig at Jimmy’s in Manchester on Friday, September 14.
On the gig front, Haley Heynderickx will play Liverpool’s intimate setting of 81 Renshaw on Friday, August 24.
