Alvie & The Breakfast Pigs

San Jose rock and rollers Alvie & The Breakfast Pigs have announced the release of their third EP Plastic Surgery, available on streaming platforms everywhere. The album was recorded at Hyde Street Studios in the Tenderloin.

According to the band, “This record is seeping with snark aggression, playfulness and annoyance, abdication and heroism. It’s the hurts-so-good breath after a pull of whiskey. It’s BDSM without a safe word.”

Earlier this month, the group released a music video for the first single off the album, “200 Deer, 1 Rabbit.” Check it out below:

The band is celebrating the four-song release with a final show at the soon-to-be-closed Hemlock Tavern. Also on the bill are two more Bay Area bands bookending the Breakfast Pigs. The Royal Panics close the evening out with their old-school, fuzz-inspired power pop, while indie-psych weirdos from Oakland, Blurred Out, open the show.

Less than a week after the show at Hemlock, the band hits the road for a four-state tour beginning Thursday, September 6 at Old Ironsides in Sacramento, hitting Reno and Winnemucca, NV, and rounding into three nights in Colorado that end at Hi Dive in Denver. From there, they’ll play a show in SLC, Utah, and make a second appearance in Reno, NV, this time at The Saint.
