Birmingham grind metal necropunk band Fukpig is already pressing a new CD for January 2014 and is sharing a few tracks that it has recorded recently. Below is the most recent one, "This World is Weakening," along with the bandcamp stream of "The Prisoner" two-track release. Fukpig will also be releasing a cassette with "Spewings" and "Belief" on each respective side, with new artwork.
Damnation Festival veterans Anaal Nathrakh will return to lay waste to Leeds this year for the sixth installment of the UK festival. They'll be joined by French experimental duo Alcest, the synth driven mathcore of Rolo Tomassi, and Fukpig, who make their Damnation debut after a performance at Deathfest earlier this year. The latest additions join the already confirmed The Dillinger Escape Plan and reformed Earthtone9 with many more bands to be announced across three stages.
Festival director Gavin McInally commented: "No band - not even the mighty Carcass - has been requested to return to Damnation Festival by the fans as often as Anaal Nathrakh so it's a pleasure, and a relief, to be able to make that happen. In contrast to the aural chaos of Nathrakh, Alcest will bring a touch of French sophistication to proceedings with their haunting, black metal inspired shoegaze. Rolo Tomassi are one of the rising stars of the current UK metal scene and it's great to be able to host their energetic live show this year. As for Fukpig, well the devastation at Deathfest is responsible for their return!"
