Yigga Digga is a straightforward no-gimmick heavy rock four-piece with BIG riffs. Hailing from Western Pennsylvania, the band has made a name for itself with a sound, attitude, and approach that will pull in metal and mainstream rock fans alike.
The band has just released their 3rd full length studio album No Limiter and is already getting airplay both domestically and internationally. The project follows their self-titled debut and the 2016 release Faded Glory, which garnered rave reviews! Led by Tom Dillon & Chris Semonik bringing the riffs & melodies, and driven by the heavy rhythm section of Bill Colflesh & Scott Pegram, the band is forging a new path in the growing rock world. The band has a little somethin’ for everyone in their catalog, and that diversity has led them to share the stage with acts ranging from Texas Hippie Coalition, Flaw, & Bobaflex to Kevin Dubrow.

Founded by thrash metal/rock fans & guitarists Tom Dillon and Randy Pringle at the tail end of the 90’s, and joined by Billy Beggs on drums, the band recorded & released the Momentum EP in 2003. Shortly afterward Chris Semonik joined on lead guitar, and Yigga DIgga recorded their self-titled first full-length album in 2007 before bowing out of the scene for several years. The band regrouped in 2012 and began work on a new studio offering. Replacing Pringle with bassist Bill Colflesh during the sessions, they released their second album Faded Glory in 2016 to critical acclaim. Discontent to rest, the band returned to the studio shortly thereafter with new drummer Scott Pegram in tow to begin working on an ambitious third album. Released in 2019, No Limiter marked a renewed focus on songwriting & arrangement, groove & melody, and showcasing the vocals while still retaining the signature guitar riffs the band is known for. The band has always been known to experiment, incorporating things like samples & guest musicians, and this time was no different as the band incorporated an instrumental track, harmonica, and even violin & classical guitar on a pair of epic numbers that sit nicely amidst the more concise radio cuts.
