Animal rights group speak about pig slaughter recording
A spokesperson for peta2, the youth arm of animals rights organisation PETA, has claimed the recording of a pig being slaughtered which features on Gallows‘ forthcoming new album ‘Grey Britain’ will turn listeners vegetarian.
The Watford rockers recorded the sound of a pig dying in a butchers’, telling NME.COM that they didn’t feel bad about it because the hog was “going to die anyway”.
The move has been slammed by peta2, with a spokesperson saying that it could put some fans off meat for good.
“The group will surely convince more people to go vegetarian,” the spokesperson told NME.COM. “People who listen to the album will realise that animals smell fear and blood in slaughterhouses and are manhandled on their way to the knife.
“Since the news of the recording broke, peta2 has received hundreds of requests for a free vegetarian starter kit from people who have now made the connection between the suffering that pigs endure and the fleeting taste of a chop or a ham sandwich.”
‘Grey Britain’ is set for release next Monday (May 4).
