PigPen Theatre Co. will widely re-release their first album, Bremen on October 9. To celebrate, the group will play a series of shows at Joe's Pub beginning October 15 and running Mondays in October, November and December.

This collection of original indie-folk compositions was first released to friends and supporters of the company in April 2012. All of Bremen's 11 tracks bear the company's trademark storytelling voice and instrumentations by each of the group's seven members. Many of the songs have been featured in PigPen's plays -- including several from The Old Man and The Old Moon, which as recently reported will be presented by Soho Playhouse this fall.

PigPen is the only company to win top honors at the New York International Fringe Festival two years in a row (in 2010 for The Nightmare Story and in 2011 for The Mountain Song). PigPen's seven members met as students at Carnegie Mellon University and officially formed the company in 2008.
