Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are Matthew Baty, Sam Grant, John-Michael Hedley, Ewan Mackenzie and Adam Ian Sykes. ‘Land of Sleeper’ is the band’s critically acclaimed 4th album, released February 17 2023.

For all that the last few years have seen Pigs' stature rise in the wake of triumphant festival slots, radio sessions (including KEXP and BBC Radio 6 Music) and sold-out venues across three continents alike, this remains a band who are fundamentally incapable of tailoring their sound to a prospective audience, instead standing alone and impervious as a monument of catharsis.

"Writing and playing music is often surprising and revealing, it can be like holding up a mirror and seeing things you didn't expect to see" reckons Mackenzie. "The darker tracks on the record hold in common a determination not to lose faith, despite the odds."

The better to unite slumber and waking, Land Of Sleeper is no less than an act of transcendence for Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - new anthems to elucidate a world sleepwalking to oblivion.


"One of the best new hard rock bands in the UK." Uncut

"Double dipped in acid wit and nightmarish visions." Metal Hammer

"Momentous." Kerrang!

"A gloriously horrible morass of pummelling drums, doom-laden riffs." The Times
