All Pigs Must Die sign w/ Southern Lord Recs

Thursday, March 03, 2011 10:40 AM PT


Official press release:

Massachusetts-based hardcore squad All Pigs Must Die have recently signed a deal with Southern Lord Recordings for their upcoming full-length, due to be unleashed this Summer.

The band's members hail from known modern hardcore/metal acts yet turn their more crust punk/d-beat-driven aggression outward with All Pigs Must Die. The band released their self-titled debut EP on their own Nonbeliever Records in 2010, and have toured regionally over recent months, already amassing a diehard legion of followers.

While little info on the upcoming new album is available for public disbursement at press time, we do know that the unit recorded the upcoming full-length album, entitled God Is War, at Kurt Ballou's infamous Godcity studios, and the album will be coming together for a release during the Summer months of 2011. Complete album info will be released in the coming weeks.

All Pigs Must Die will perform at several events during this year's SXSW, including the Full Metal Texas showcase alongside Rwake, Trap Them, Hull and more, as well as the Power Of The Riff/Southern Lord showcase where they'll tear it up with Trash Talk, Trap Them, The Secret, Eagle Twin, Masakari and The County Bucks. APMD will also be on tour with 'Lord labelmates Nails on their upcoming East Coast dates in March.

3/16 Scoot Inn - Austin, TX @ SXSW Thrasher Magazine Death Match
3/17 Emo's - Austin, TX @ SXSW Full Metal Texas showcase
3/18 501 Studios - Austin, TX @ Southern Lord/Power Of The Riff SXSW party

How fcking predictable.

first SL signs Black Breath: a boring/lazy Entombed rip-off. then they sign a band ripping off Black Breath. how much more watered down could you get? also: still the worst band name ever.

^agreed. Seriously, who sat down and decided that would be a good band name? A fifth grader? With an overzealous appreciation for Ice-T?

wow he's really trying to control the market on this wave of music coming out...

It's a Death in June album. I'm not sure if that's where they got the name though.
