Reigning grindcore champions Pig Destroyer have announced a series of summer and fall festival appearances in support of their upcoming 5th full-length record. The band will be heading to Europe on August 10th to play the Czech Republic’s Brutal Assault Festival and Belgium’s Ieper Fest followed by a string of Japanese and Canadian dates.

Then in November, Pig Destroyer is set to headline the UK’s Damnation Festival along with a round of headlining dates. These shows mark the first live performances with new drummer Adam Jarvis behind the kit. A complete listing of dates is included below with more to be announced shortly.

Pig Destroyer recently entered guitarist Scott Hull’s Visceral Sound Studios to record the band's first album in 5 years. The as-of-yet-titled album is a return to a raw, primitive sound and will feature 19 songs of the band's signature misanthropic grind. A late 2012 release is expected via Relapse Records.
