THE MIGHTY SWINE to release New CD / Video: Last Man Standing
Cincinnati, Ohio — March 25, 2014  
 
 
Broad Horizon Records, Inc. is pleased to announce that THE MIGHTY SWINE have recently finished up recording tracks for their upcoming album, Last Man Standing due out May 20, 2014.
 
Hot on the tails of Bassist Mike Skimmerhorn's other release, CHASTAIN's Surrender to No One (Leviathan Records) the band once again team up with Rob Nadler at Fat Track Studio in Forest Park, OH to record the 11 song disc. The first single is the title track and will feature a video by Nikk Hearn-Sutton (RUSH - Time Machine DVD).
 
Other tracks include; All That Is Evil, Two Graves, Tomorrow, Vengeance is Mine, and Dead Man's Stare, for a darker, more political stance than previous releases.
It will also feature a scorching rendition of the Judas Priest classic, Hell Bent for Leather and the Bonus Track: Pool of Emptiness aka: P.O.E. which Mike demo'd for BHR 5years ago.
 
The Mighty Swine went on hiatus in 2013 while Mike recorded Surrender to No One, but has returned with a vengeance! After working with David T. Chastain again, Mike wanted to pursue a more progressive, guitar driven sound aimed at the purists, along with a more modern drummer than the previous releases. He enlisted Stacey Donahue and Jeff Tong on Guitar and Rory Faciane on drums for this latest release and the result has been amazing. "I couldn't be any happier with the way this (disc) has turned out. This is the album I have always wanted to make. I truly feel that this is The Swine's best and heaviest material since it's inception....our first true metal album".
 
Brian Basher of Hard Rock Nights says "NO ONE does it better than The Mighty Swine...Loud, Sweaty, and Raw - makes you want to break things...exactly what rock n roll is supposed to be" and Kevin 'Grape Ape' Dean - Rock 105.1 FM - KTMC had this to say; "The Mighty Swine blew me away! I'm loving their vocals - BAD ASS! - bottom line, I'm adding them to my rotation effective NOW! Thank you for allowing me to share this with my listeners". Modern Drummer calls Rory Faciane a "drummer on the move" and we can't wait to show the new lineup off.
 
Mike lives in Cincinnati, OH while Stacey and Jeff both reside in the Columbus, OH area. Rory moved from New Orleans after Katrina and currently resides in Nashville, Tn. but the band is attaining worldwide status with fans emailing in from Brazil, Russia, Costa Rica, Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden, Finland, etc. The guys are hoping to embark on their first ever European tour this summer.
