Band of the Week (Pigweed) 4.6.21

An alternative Nu-metal style band from San Antonio,Texas.

Pigweed was formed in 2009 by Mauricio Ortega and started reinventing the style with an unsurpassed sound that some claim is “Nu-metal with a modern twist”.

After a few years, David Magallanez joined as our percussionist and has now moved to one of the two main vocalists. A year later, Chris Fletcher joined the band as our new bassist.

Shortly after Danny Young came in on guitar in 2016 and right after we brought in our brother Corey Epps on guitar as well in 2017. In 2019 Walter Moreno took over on drums and brought the thunder.

Pigweed has remained one of the hardest hitting bands in South Texas. With a versatile style, that keeps you wanting and begging for more.

In 2016, Pigweed signed a Distribution deal with Pavement Entertainment out of Chicago, and on March 9, 2018 we released our new album called, The Weight, available on any online music outlet, as well as stream
