JOE RILEY (Liquid Fire, The Mighty Swine) and Dann Norris (The Mighty Swine, Cincinnati Sinners) have released a joint statement that “After sincere thought, Lt. Dann Norris (Drums) and Joe Riley (Guitar/Vox) have decided to part ways with The Mighty Swine to pursue the darker side of Swine material” resulting in a new project entitled StitchPig.
The Mighty Swine released 3 singles during 2012 (Lust / Pagan Holiday, Sand Vein, Love Dies) which were well received by national radio,as well as their first commercial video for Lust, which sat at #1 on Roxwel’s Rock AND Metal Charts for over 12 weeks before dropping to #3 behind Black Veil Brides’ Fallen Angels and Five Finger Death Punch’s Never Enough (week ending 10/20/12).
THE MIGHTY SWINE featured Mike Skimmerhorn (CJSS, CHASTAIN) on Vocals / Bass, Joe Riley (Liquid Fire) on Guitar / Vocals, and Dann Norris (Cincinnati Sinners) on drums after losing original guitarist David Warren Byrge in 2011. StitchPig will feature Joe Riley & Dann Norris along with a new vocalist and new bassist to settle into the more traditional four piece rock band and focusing on more modern / progressive / darker material.
According to Joe Riley they “are excited to continue moving forward in the direction that Dann & I have been pushing for while in The Mighty Swine…a darker, heavier, more modern sound along the lines of Five Finger Death Punch or Killswitch Engage while maintaining a Progressive Metal, guitar oriented sound that I think people will like.”
