Deadguy Working On New Split Release With Pig Destroyer

It looks like Deadguy are working on a new split release with Pig Destroyer. Drummer Dave Rosenberg recently confirmed the news during an interview with Lambgoat.

Rosenberg said the following:

“We’ve been writing new stuff, we’re playing a couple shows in October, we’ve been talking to a bunch of festivals and stuff. We’re going to do a split that we’re also working on which is going to be with Pig Destroyer, which is fun. This is the thing, it’s hard to get it together just because life gets in the way, but the fact that we can do that—Pig Destroyer; absurd band, absurd name, everything about it is great in my opinion—and the fact that we get to go do this stuff now because we’re sort of a functioning unit to me is awesome.”

He also added the following about release plans:

“Sooner or later it’s coming. We also remixed the half of ‘Fixation’ that we had digitally, which is pretty fun too.

Outer Heaven Release New Covers EP “In Tribute…”

Outer Heaven have digitally released a new covers EP titled “In Tribute…“ The effort, which can be streamed below, features covers of Repulsion’s “Maggots In Your Coffin,” Morbid Angel’s “Word Of Shit (The Promised Land),” Pig Destroyer’s “Junkyard God,” Mortician’s “Drowned In Your Blood,” and Death’s “Secret Face.”

The band commented:

“In the very uncertain and depressing times during the beginning of the pandemic, we wanted to find a way to keep ourselves occupied as a band. With shows falling to the wayside for the foreseeable future, we decided to push our efforts into celebrating our label, Relapse Records, in their 30th year.

We scoured the timeless discography of the label and chose a handful of tracks that meant a lot to us, and decided to record covers of them as an offering of tribute to the label and all the fans who have supported us all this time. We also recorded an extra 5th track from outside the RR discography that we just couldn’t resist including with this release. We hope this will do the job of holding everyone over as we complete work on our 2nd full length album! DEATH METAL FOREVER!”
