TUNE Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - GNT
To coincide with the release of their triumphant new record King Of Cowards, out now on Rocket Recordings, Newcastle-based five-piece Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have announced their enormous new single "GNT".
Explosive from the outset, "GNT" features the band's recognisably ferocious riffs and singer Matt Baty's cathartic bellow; a highlight from the new record and the band's live set.
The track's catchy chorus features backing vocals from a choir made up of local friends and musicians, including Richard Dawson and Lyubov Soloveva of Pinkshinyultrablast.
"GNT" follows lead single "Cake Of Light", which was added to BBC 6 Music's B Playlist, selected as Track Of The Week by Huw Stephens on his BBC Radio 1 show, alongside support from multiple shows across a handful of national stations.
Following two raucous, sold-out album launch shows over the weekend in London and Newcastle, the band are starting their UK tour later this month. The tour will be followed by a run of their biggest shows to date including London's The Scala and The Sage, Gateshead.
