PIG DESTROYER Premiere New Video for "The Diplomat" on Noisey, New Album Book Burner Available Now on Relapse Records
Described by MetalSucks as "the best metal album of the year", PIG DESTROYER's long awaited new album Book Burner was released earlier this week on Relapse Records. The reigning grindcore champions razor-sharp fifth-full length was recorded at guitarist Scott Hull's Visceral Sound Studios.
Today PIG DESTROYER is premiering their new video for the song "The Diplomat". The video was directed by Phil Mucci (High on Fire, Opeth, Korn) and can be viewed HERE courtesy of Noisey.
Book Burner features 19 tracks with a return to the band's raw, misanthropic sound. Book Burner will be available on multiple formats including CD, Deluxe 2xCD, LP, Deluxe 2xLP, Cassette and Digital. All of the editions are available for order via Relapse Records here and iTunes here.
The deluxe editions each contain a bonus disc of punk covers and a short story, titled The Atheist, penned by frontman JR Hayes. The Atheist is a post-apocalyptic tale about a decaying world taken over by the violence of religion that showcases the renowned lyricists' unsurpassed style for the first time as prose. The deluxe 2xLP will also contain an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot.
In support of Book Burner, PIG DESTROYER will be making special appearances at various festivals including Decibel Magazine's 100th Issue Anniversary Show and Maryland Deathfest 2013.
The band performed in Brooklyn, NJ last week as part of the CMJ Music Marathon as part of the Metal Injection/Metal Sucks Showcase. The entire performance can be viewed HERE.
