Pig Destroyer by Joey Wharton
Grindcore heavyweights Pig Destroyer are getting ready to unleash Head Cage, their first LP since 2012’s Book Burner, on September 7th through Relapse Records. Today, the band have let loose the official music video for their grizzly new single “Army of Cops,” which was directed by David Brodsky and features guest vocals from Richard Johnson (Agoraphobic Nosebleed).
Guitarist Scott Hull depicts the video shoot as:
Hot and sweaty metal dudes rockin it out in a stuffy loading dock on a 102 degree day. Dave Brodsky tried to push us to do a video more metal than Judas Priest’s Hot Rockin, thankfully he let us keep our shirts on.
Peep the clip below.
In more great news, Pig Destroyer have booked a trio of appearances for later this year with the first gig serving as a record release bash in New York City at Gramercy Theatre on September 22 [TIX tba].
