PREHISTORIC PIGS is a family business. Two brothers and a cousin found a brand new band on the ashes of a previous group, in Mortegliano (Northeast Italy) in 2012. The instrumental combo features Juri on guitar, Jacopo on bass, and Mattia, the cousin, on drums.
The same year they released their debut album Wormhole Generator for Moonlight Records. Once on tour, the band stopped in Dublin where it played with the Irish label mates Electric Taurus. To seal the friendship between the two bands, a 12" vinyl split album was released in 2014 via Go Down Records. The eight-track sophomore studio album Everything Is Good was released in 2015 by The Smoking Goat Records. 2019 is the year of Dai, Prehistoric Pigs’ third full-length, this time completely self-produced.
During their ten-year activity, the Prehistoric Pigs play on many stages all over Italy and tour clubs and festivals across Europe, from Serbia to Ireland, from Hungary to Belgium. They perform at the Born Wild Festival in Dresden (Germany), the Tides Of Youth Festival in Krk (Croatia), the Stonerhead Festival in Salzburg (Austria), the Stonegg Psychedelic Festival in Bolzano (Italy), the Navajo Calling Fest in Parma (Italy) and the Pietra Sonica in Udine, their homeland.
Their fourth album marks the return to rough and raw stoner rock, it’s called The Fourth Moon and is due out for Go Down Records in late 2021.
