PIG DESTROYER recently re-signed with its longtime record label Relapse.
The band’s fifth-full length and first album in over five years, “Book Burner”, sold more than 4,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 102 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Book Burner” was recorded at guitarist Scott Hull‘s Visceral Sound Studios. Released on October 22 via Relapse Records, the CD features 19 tracks with a return to the band’s raw, misanthropic sound. The effort was made available on multiple formats, including CD, deluxe 2xCD, LP, deluxe 2xLP, cassette, digital and an extremely limited ultimate edition dubbed “The Order Of The Godless Swine.”
