Industrial/experimental supergroup PIGFACE, currently on their first tour in 14 years, have announced that Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe will continue with the band for the entirety of the tour, including a just-announced second matinee show in Chicago on November 30.

“I can’t believe it’s been over 14 years since we were out on tour,” says Martin Atkins. “If anything, it feels more powerful, more connected, more dangerous, more exciting, and more important than it ever has before. For all of us; band and audience included. The fact that Randy, Danny, Lesley, Mary, En Esch, Curse, everyone, gives so readily to this thing is nothing but amazing to me on a daily basis.”

Says Blythe, “I am now doing the whole tour! Getting to play with people like Gaelynn Lea is one of the reasons I love being in PIGFACE so much! Let the industrial madness begin!”

PIGFACE was founded three decades ago with the premise of maintaining a revolving-door lineup that included the heaviest hitters in industrial and alternative music. The group released six albums between 1991 and 2006. Between recording and touring, hundreds of musicians have counted themselves as members of PIGFACE. PIGFACE has remained relatively silent since 2009 with the exception two of shows in Chicago in 2016.
