Fresh off the release of his spellbinding collection of covers CANDY last month, post-punk band <PIG>, featuring the iconic Lord of Lard himself RAYMOND WATTS, has announced a string of live dates in support of that album. What separates this run from his recent North American tours is that this sees the triumphant return of previous band members to the <PIG> pen.
Watts reunites with Steve White, guitar slinger with <PIG> thru the industrial wars of the 90’s before going on to carve his name as the keystone guitarist with KMFDM for many years following. When time allowed, Steve could be found building solid steel riffs and touring with 16 Volt. But it’s his return to <PIG> that puts the sausage back in the center of the sty once again …
En Esch also returns to the <PIG> fold with Watts. These partners in swine started their long and twisted history together on the first KMFDM album in 1985 and they have worked together on the most seminal recordings and tours with both KMFDM and <PIG>. En Esch is also the standout singer in Pigface and will be an integral part of their forthcoming tour.
Galen Waling returns on drums after extensive touring commitments with Lords of Acid, Julian K and 16 Volt.
Kicking off on September 19th at Toronto’s Hard Luck Bar and wrapping around the eastern half of the continent, The Divine Descent Tour includes support from Cyanotic who bring their unique blend of electro futurism, and new Metropolis signing A Primitive Evolution.
