PIG DESTROYER Re-Signs to Relapse Records
Fresh on the heels of the release of their critically acclaimed fifth album Book Burner, The undisputed kings of grind PIG DESTROYER have re-signed with their long time record label home Relapse Records.
The band commented on the re-signing with Relapse:
"Super excited to be a part of the extraordinary Relapse Records again! A song comes to mind in the melody of the "Team America" jingle. "Relapse, FUCK YEAH! Once again, signing a muthafuckin contract!" - Adam Jarvis
"Relapse has been a great home for both ANb and PIG DESTROYER since the very early days. We're not an easy band to deal with but Relapse has been patient, enthusiastic, and accommodating to our headache-inducing schedules, our strict adherence to not touring or behaving like a normal band, and just generally being pains-in-the-asses. We wouldn't trade that for anything." - Scott Hull
"I don't always sign contracts with record labels, but when I do, I choose Relapse." -jR Hayes
Book Burner which was released October 22nd features 19 tracks with a return to the band's raw, misanthropic sound. Book Burner is 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 also contains an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot.
Book Burner can be heard in its entirety on PIG DESTROYER's Band Camp Page HERE.
PIG DESTROYER's new video for "The Diplomat" can be viewed HERE. The video was directed by Phil Mucci (High on Fire, Opeth, Korn).
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.
