Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs reveal new single 'Ultimate Hammer' and new UK, USA and European shows

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have just released 'Ultimate Hammer' the second single from their forthcoming album Land of Sleeper which is released on 17 February.

Watch the fantastic video for 'Ultimate Hammer' above.

We asked Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs to tell us something about what his ferocious new single and guitarist Adam said “Ultimate Hammer is the by-product of being trapped in the house and listening to too much ZZ Top, if there is such a thing."

Though, Pigs' other guitarist and producer Sam Grant says: “If there were a quintessential Pigs track, this would probably be it, so it was an obvious move to make this one the album opener."

And vocalist Matt Baty says “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. Maybe it's always been this way but it sure is hard not to feel dizzy. What a time to be alive.”


'Land Of Sleeper' comes housed in amazing 'Callum Rooney' sleeve art with obi strip and 'Oz' style lyrics poster. The CD and several different vinyl variants are available in these variants:
