Pig Destroyer released their fifth studio album Book Burner this past October. Book Burner is available on multiple formats including CD, Deluxe 2xCD, LP, Deluxe 2xLP, Cassette and Digital.
The deluxe editions each contain a bonus disc of punk covers and a short story, titled The Atheist, penned by frontman JR Hayes.

The deluxe 2xLP also contains an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot. All of the editions are available for order via Relapse Records here and iTunes here.
Book Burner can be heard in its entirety on Pig Destroyer’s Band Camp Page here.
