Official press release:

The Newcastle, UK-based group Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs has shared a new video for their latest single "Ultimate Hammer," a high-octane sonic ride that melds classic riffage with the group's predilection for offbeat chaos. They will release their new album Land of Sleeper on February 17th via Missing Piece Records. Land of Sleeper is available for preorder now.

The group has also announced a new slate of U.S. tour dates, including a stop at SXSW. See below for the full list. Tickets are currently on sale here.


Following the album's first single "Mr Medicine" - the audio equivalent of sticking a fork in plug socket - comes single number two, and album opener: the coruscating "Ultimate Hammer."

Vocalist Matt Baty shared:

Everything at the moment feels like it's moving at one hell of a speed. Momentous events pass by in the blink of an eye while we try to keep our heads steady on a planet spinning roughly 1,000 miles per hour. Maybe it's always been this way but it sure is hard not to feel dizzy. What a time to be alive.
