If you haven't heard All Pigs Must Die, check out their debut self titled EP, which you can find here. APMD features members of Converge and the Hope Conspiracy!
Just announced today, here's the official press release from our friends over at Southern Lord Records:
"Massachusetts-based hardcore/metal 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."
As huge fans of both Converge AND The Hope Conspiracy, Kevin and I both look forward to seeing what these forces will be capable of!
To say goodbye, here's a clip of All Pigs Must Die playing live in New York City at the Cakeshop last January.
