In just a few days, French noise cultivators Solar Flare Records will release a brand new 10″ EP from NYC-based PIGS. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Dave Curran (Unsane, Players Club), drummer Jim Paradise (Player’s Club, Freshkills, Hellno) and bassist Andrew Schneider, renowned producer of acts including Cave In, Converge, Made Out of Babies, Unsane and Keelhaul, the PIGS trio dispatches a bruising, noxious concoction of noise, rock and sludge, seemingly collective fallout from the band’s other previous/current musical endeavors.
Following their grating debut LP You Ruin Everything, released last year on Solar Flare Records, this crew of riff henchmen now filthify their résumés once again with three new tunes corralled on the new Gaffe EP. Gaffe serves as a stop-gap release between their You Ruin Everything LP and and their forthcoming sophomore effort, still in the works for release in early 2014. Featuring three new tracks, Gaffe, is simple and pure, showcasing a more relaxed approach than their debut, but still retaining the dirtiness of noise rock and the sludge heaviness masterfully explored on their debut album.
Preceding the release, Revolver Magazine is streaming all of Gaffe RIGHT HERE.
Gaffe is being released as a 10″ pressed in black and solid red schemes bound in a screen printed jacket, and bears the official street date of October 15th, as the EP also serves to celebrate PIGS‘ impending European tour with labelmates Sofy Major. Beginning the day after the release of Gaffe, the two trios will terrorize seventeen cities across the continent, kicking off with a gig in Paris on Wednesday, October 16th and burning out in Geneva on November 3rd. All of this is preceded by a hometown throwdown with PIGS storming Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus Bar this Sunday, October 13th alongside Cleanteeth and Marching Teeth.
