We’re not telling porkies here, the new PIGGS EP is probably the best you’ll hear before the year ends!
Really felt necessary to get this one out of the way as a standalone thing — we here at Homicidols Dot Com aren’t all huge PIGGS people, but I feel like we all support PIGGS in principle on the grounds of their being oriented toward audiences outside of Japan and all.

So next, you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly and then your band disbands. So after that, you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly then you lose a diet challenge and leave your group. AND THEN you’re one of the most legendary idol performers to grace the stage and everything is going perfectly but then your group disbands. So finally, you say fuck it and decided to make your own damn group.
Everyone say “HALLO PIGGS”!
This article was a bit delayed due to sickness, so sorry to all 99% of you who know about this by now!
Anyway, we got the solo album, time to see the group! Meet PIGGS:
(We knew Pour Lui was borrowing WACK resources for this, did that include the artist for the GANG PARADE split groups’ logos?)
