All Pigs Must Die’s new single, “Hostage Animal,” has just been released via Invisible Oranges. The song is the title track, and third single (“Blood Wet Teeth,” and “A Caustic Vision,” are on Bandcamp already) off of their upcoming album, which will be released October 27th. The album will be their third studio album- it follows their 2013 album Nothing Violates This Nature and 2011 album God Is War. According to the band, this album will be full of surprises. The album will continue to build off of the exploration of rage that they introduced in their two previous albums.
Since their last album, the heavy metal/hardcore punk supergroup has expanded from a quartet to a quintet of talented musicians. Original members, vocalist Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy), drummer Ben Koller (Converge), bassist Matt Woods (Bloodhorse) and guitarist Adam Wenworth (Bloodhorse), return along with the addition of guitarist Brian Izzy (Trap Them).
“Hostage Animal,” sounds like the mental (and metal) soundtrack of a Shark in chummed waters. It is wild, bloodthirsty and in your face. The band continues to build off of themes of raw and relentless emotion in this strenuous and thrashing single.
