PIG DESTROYER Streaming ‘Book Burner’ in Full; New Video for “The Diplomat”
Pig Destroyer’s upcoming album, Book Burner, is set for release next week and in anticipation of that, the band is streaming the entire album at NPR here.
The band recently shot a video for the track “The Diplomat” and you guys will be able to see that next week.
Book Burner features 19 tracks with a return to the band’s raw, misanthropic sound. Book Burnerwill be available on multiple formats including CD, Deluxe 2xCD, LP, Deluxe 2xLP, Cassette and Digital. Pre-Orders for all of the editions are available via Relapse Records here and iTunes here.
The deluxe editions will each contain a bonus disc of punk covers and a short story, titled The Atheist, penned by frontman JR Hayes. The Atheist is a post-apocalyptic tale about a decaying world taken over by the violence of religion that showcases the renowned lyricists’ unsurpassed style for the first time as prose. The deluxe 2xLP will also contain an etched b-side featuring artwork by Wormrot frontman Arif Rot.
Pig Destroyer will be making special appearances at various festivals and shows throughout the year, including the UK’s Damnation Festival, The Metal Sucks/Metal Injection CMJ Showcase, Decibel Magazine’s 100th Issue Anniversary Show and Maryland Deathfest 2013 – all in support of their new album.
