Underscore Part 3 say some words about Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs at BBC 6Music Festival
"Pigs x7 played to one of the largest audiences of the weekend and probably played the best set."
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (who will be known as Pigs x7 for the rest of this piece) played to one of the largest audiences of the weekend and probably played the best set which is unusual to say when being simplistic Pigs x7 are a metal band. Having chatted with lead singer Mat prior to their set and watching them it’s obvious why they’re causing such a stir in a more mainstream arena than their contemporaries, Pigs x7 are a bunch of good spirited lads having fun whilst playing big riffs. If you see Pigs x7 on a poster you’re immediately intrigued and if you see them you’ll learn that they’re a metal band but a band presenting themselves like anyone else, welcoming easy-going people not a dark threatening tone that can often be the case with metal bands. Mat spoke to the audience thanking them for their time saying that they felt lucky to get radio play which made them feel like ‘popstars’. To put it simply Pigs x7 are big bastard metal played by lads with just as bigger smiles on their faces.
