We Are PIGS Premiere Music Video For “Kids” Featuring Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch & Love And Death’s J.R. Bareis

We Are PIGS have premiered a new video for their latest single “Kids.” As previously reported, that track features Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch and his Love And Death bandmate J.R. Bareis.

We Are PIGS’ Esjay Jones said the following about the song, which was inspired by HBO’s “Euphoria”:

“I was deeply troubled by its graphic and raw portrayal of sex, drugs, identity, social media and the difficulties of navigating life as a teenager today as seen on the show. It was hard to watch. I spoke to Brian about the concept – initially thinking the message was, the ‘kids aren’t alright,’ but as we started working together, we wanted to spread positivity, hope and purpose to youth with our words, and ‘kids are alright’ became the mantra.”

Welch added:

“For youth today, the world can be a particularly dark place, filled with many temptations. But there is always help available if one reaches for it as the red balloon symbolizes in the video. Giving advice to young musicians over the years, the number one thing I tell them is to strive for uniqueness!

There are so many copycats out there and the bands that stand out the most and have longevity all have a unique sound and quality to them that make them unforgettable and loved by many. We Are PIGS are so unique! When Esjay sent me the track for ‘Kids‘, I was instantly in love with it! This band doesn’t sound like any other artist out there and I’m so honored Esjay asked me and JR Bareis to be a part of this track!”

Kittie’s Morgan Lander Guests On New We Are Pigs Song “Moot”

Kittie’s Morgan Lander is featured on a new We Are Pigs song titled “Moot.” You can find an official video for that track below:

Lander commented:

“I feel like women supporting women in the music industry is something that we always need more of, and the fact that Esjay is a musician/writer/engineer and producer puts her in a class all by herself. ‘Moot‘ is unapologetic and angry, the voice of unbridled rage questioning everything in a very uncertain time. Lending my voice to be heard on this song is something I’m very proud of and hope that listeners enjoy it and fear it a bit, as much as I do.”

We Are Pigs’ Esjay Jones also added that she was inspired to work with Lander after watching the “Kittie: Origins/Evolutions” documentary:

“Five minutes into it I was enamored and empowered. I was deeply fueled by the band’s brazen tenacity, willingness to take risks, continuous forward momentum in the face of adversarial forces and their ability to level the playing field in a super male-dominated genre within a male-dominated industry.

Literally, as soon as the documentary ended, I sent an unsolicited e-mail to Morgan asking if she would consider collaborating on this We Are PIGS single. Making music with Morgan has been a bucket list experience — she is the real deal and I feel honored and privileged to have had this opportunity to create with a hero!”
