Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs release new single “Ultimate Hammer” 

Whether dwelling in the realm of dreams or nightmares, the primordial drive of Newcastle-based Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs is more powerful than ever. Land of Sleeper, their fourth record in a decade of riot and rancor, is testimony to this: the sound of a band not so much reinvigorated as channeling a furious energy, which only appears to gather momentum as the band’s surroundings spin on their axis.

Following the album’s first single “Mr Medicine” – the audio equivalent of sticking a fork in a plug socket – comes single number two, and album opener: the coruscating “Ultimate Hammer”. “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,” elaborates vocalist Matt Baty. “Maybe it’s always been this way but it sure is hard not to feel dizzy. What a time to be alive.”

Alongside the release of “Ultimate Hammer” comes the announcement of more headline live shows across the UK, Europe and North America.
