About Pig Out from Auckland


PIG OUT ARE SOON TO RELEASE THEIR LONG AWAITED FULL LENGTH ALBUM AND ARE POISED TO SET THE DANCE SCENE ALIGHT.


In the two years since the release of their acclaimed mini album ‘Club Poems’ - which won rave(!) reviews as well as making end of year best of at London's Rough Trade - Pig Out have a dozen tours of New Zealand and a BDO set under their belt, won b-net for best electronic track, played SXSW, LA, New York, London and Sydney and taken in a European tour that included headlining the Midi festival on the French Riviera, a rave in a container ship in Barcelona harbour and a four hour non-stop set in a Berlin techno club.





Formed in Christchurch in early 2006 the band were popularised through marathon live sets that fused forgotten rave enthusiasm with live funk bass lines, raw MCing and the thump of Detroit techno. This genre mash up forged a distinctive sound, utilising a variety of energy sources, guest musicians, old and new equipment and sometimes crowd members to pull off. Pig Out became the go-to party band and their legendary shows introduced clubbing and dance music to a generation of young New Zealand indie kids.




In 2009 still nothing sounds like Pig Out. Now based in Auckland Marie Celeste and Kit Lawrence have spent the last year writing material for their debut full-length album, 'Rave X’ - tbr October 2009 through Tardus/Universal. ’Rave X’ can be read as a year zero for the possibilities of a genre that is as hard to pin down as the band that created it. Brooding sub bass rubs shoulders with joyful piano stabs, dark dubstep sits next to twisted electro and futuristic drum n bass charged bangers morph into ecstatic rave throwbacks. Lookout for Pig Out turning dn’b heads in to ravers and neon whistleblowers into UK garage fans in a club near you!
