Geordie rock group Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs have released new visuals for their recent single, ‘Mr Medicine’.

The track was originally released on November 1st and is the Newcastle-based group’s first new material of the year, and serves as a preview of their upcoming fourth album, ‘Land Of Sleeper’, which is set to arrive in full on February 17th via Rocket Recordings. The five-piece covered Donna Summer’s ‘Hot Stuff’ last October, which followed their 2020 LP, ‘Viscerals’ – Dork’s 3-star review described that project as, “an intelligent effort and heavy metal in its rawest and most ruthless form”.

“Music is a powerful medicine and it should be consumed daily for mental well-being. ‘Mr Medicine‘s faithful and highly regarded colleague is Doctor Gig, who we also have on speed dial,” lead vocalist Matt Baty explains of the track. “Lyrically I suppose the sentiment is not too dissimilar to Sister Sledge’s ‘Lost In Music’, only galvanised by heavy, heavy doses of distortion and really big drum fills.”

The new visual accompaniment was directed by Wilm Danby, who recalls: “When I first heard the track, I immediately felt a kind of forward motion, like being pushed forward by an unknown force in a nightmare, toward an unknown place, floating but with no control. Scary but fun…” 

“On repeated listens, it became sort of a mantra with riffs, about transcending fear through some kind of ritual or rite of passage,” he continues.” I wanted to make that ritual happen, to see what it could look like, and if it would work. A stone circle was the obvious place for this, the moon is famously great at transforming things, and transformations are usually very painful!”
