All Pigs Must Die Debut Full-Length, "God Is War," Set For August Release

Massachusetts' ALL PIGS MUST DIE is preparing to set their debut full-length loose on the public this summer. Entitled "God Is War," the pummeling eight-song record album has officially been set for release on August 16, 2011 via Southern Lord Recordings.

The band's 2010-released self-titled EP was initially released on LP via the band's own Nonbeliever Records, eventually catching the ear of Southern Lord, who almost immediately picked up the album for distribution, and signed the hard-working act for the release of their newly completed "God Is War" full-length.

"God Is War" was recorded and mixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his God City Studio (Black Breath, Nails, Trap Them, Disfear) in December. The cover bears a fittingly dark drawing by famed artist Florian Bertmer, who was also responsible for the artwork on All Pigs Must Die's self-titled EP.

The "God Is War" tracklisting is as follows:

1. Death Dealer
2. Pulverization
3. Sacrosanct
4. God Is War
5. The Blessed Void
6. Third World Genocide
7. Total Extinction
8. Sadistic Vindicator

ALL PIGS MUST DIE contains vocalist Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy), drummer Ben Koller (Converge), guitarist Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse) and bassist Matt Woods (Bloodhorse). Since uniting in All Pigs Must Die in 2010, the band has toured regionally throughout the U.S., including multiple times at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, and several Scion-sponsored music showcases including their first West Coast appearance at Los Angeles' The Roxy. All Pigs Must Die will return to the West Coast this August as they are scheduled to play several of the upcoming The Power Of The Riff shows.
