Hailing from Central Texas, Bay of Pigs was formed in 2007 when the boys got tired of hearing the same old Sh*t in today’s music scene. Fans of 70’s hard rock, yesterday’s and today’s stoner / doom, they did what came natural. ROCK!! Just jamming for the first couple of months, Bay of Pigs stumbled on to something special. Taking influences from Clutch, CORE, Fu Manchu, Earthride, Pentagram, Goatsnake, St. Vitus, Orange Goblin, Lucifer’s friend, Captain Beyond, Led Zepplin and of course Black Sabbath. Bay of Pigs mixed it all up, put their own flavor in, and created their own version of “Southern Fried Weed Rock”. Kick ass Solid driven guitar, Fuzzy bass, thumping drums and catchy/ melodic vocals, these boys are in for the kill.
Bay of Pigs have shared the stage with bands such as Orange Goblin, Kylesa, The Gates of Slumber, NAAM, Zoroaster, Blood of the sun, Asylum on the Hill, Split Hoof, Dixie Witch, House of Broken Promises, Superheavygoatass, WEEDEATER, EHG, Honky, The Roller, Iron Age, Sasquatch and several other National/regional and local Acts.
The Harvest is a DIY album which was recorded two years ago and is finally released recently. They are in the works to go into the studio and record a new album this fall. “It’s going to be heavy and yet have a flavor no one’s done before.”, lead singer Shaggy says. They have created quite a Buzz in the music scene. By the way, MAKE SURE you catch Bay of Pigs live! They are energetic, give it all they have and love to have fun getting the crowd going. If you want something new, fresh and hard rocking, Listen to Bay of Pigs………….420 SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MUSIC SCENE!!!!
"Now that you've engorged yourself with tons of turkey and all the fixin's, seen the Pack smack the Lions in the mouth, and watch Nickelback embarress themselves on national TV, it's time to loosen your top button, crack open a Black Label, and rip into some smokin' (as the band puts it) Southern Fried Weed Rock!! Wearing their influences proudly on their sleeve, Texas band Bay of Pigs plasters your face to the wall with slow penetrating riffs, a slow steady groove and tons of southern swagger."
