Pig Destroyer Reveal New Album Title, Cover Art
Reigning grindcore champions Pig Destroyer have revealed the title of their highly anticipated new album to be Book Burner. The band recently completed self-recording their razor-sharp fifth-full length and first album in over five years at guitarist Scott Hull’s Visceral Sound Studios. Book Burner will see a Oct. 23 release via Relapse Records and features 19 tracks with a return to the band’s raw, misanthropic sound.
