Prehistoric Pigs is an Italian Stoner Doom band

Prehistoric Pigs


PREHISTORIC PIGS are 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 release their debut album Wormhole Generator for Moonlight Records. Once on tour, the band stops in Dublin where it plays with the Irish label mates Electric Taurus. To seal the friendship between the two bands, a 12" vinyl split album is released in 2014 via Go Down Records. The eight-track sophomore studio album Everything Is Good is 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 Born Wild Festival in Dresden (Germany), Tides Of Youth Festival in Krk (Croatia), Stonerhead Festival in Salzburg (Austria), Stonegg Psychedelic Festival in Bolzano (Italy), Navajo Calling Fest in Parma (Italy) and Pietra Sonica in Udine, their homeland.


The 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.
