PIG PEN plays speedy and melodic punk rock.


Formed in 1996, Tampa, Florida based PIG PEN have released a few CD's on their own independent imprint Snot Rocket WreckChords. With their old-school meets new-school take on punk rock, they have shared bills with such heavyweights as Pennywise, NoFX and Bad Religion as well as countless other up and coming punk, ska, emo and hardcore bands from Detroit to Miami.
