Pig Destroyer Planning New Album, New Live Release, Etc.

During a recent interview with Decibel, Pig Destroyer guitarist Scott Hull talked a bit about the band’s current plans. Among them are a new album, a new live album, and a split release with Cherubs.

Hull said the following:

“…We’re intentionally in our mid-period phase that a lot of bands have gone through. Napalm Death had their ‘Diatribes‘ and the three albums. We’re sort of intentionally in that, where we’re doing stuff that’s a little groovier and it’s not necessarily as extreme, but it’s something that we need to sort of get into our discography and out of our system. I’ve already told the guys we’re going to go back into something more extreme for the next record.

We’ve got a live album coming up after ‘The Octagonal Stairway‘ and then we’re going to do a split with Cherubs which is going to be more in tune with that noise rock-type stuff and then we’ll do another full-length. I have every intention at this point for it to be shorter, faster, weirder songs, sort of like the earlier stuff.”
