Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are Matthew Baty, Sam Grant, John-Michael Hedley, Ewan Mackenzie and Adam Ian Sykes. The last few years has seen the bands’ rise, in the wake of triumphant festival slots, radio sessions (by the likes of KEXP and BBC Radio) and sold-outs venues across three continents. Pigs’ 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 better to unite slumber and waking, their newest album, Land Of Sleeper, which was released in February this year 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.

Support Ioana Iorgu digs her nails into your skin with the unsettling yet engaging atmosphere she creates with dissonant post-punk guitars that will make your diaphragm rumble, and chugging drums that directly contrast with the softly spoken cold-hearted lyrics.
