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

 Pigweed was formed in 2009 by Mauricio Ortega 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 2019 Mo took over on drums and bring 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.
