Industrial Legends Pigface Announce First Tour In 14 Years, With Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe At Select Shows

For industrial music devotees, Pigface need no introduction; for the uninitiated, the band might not be a household name. This is most likely because while the band's many previous members and collaborators -- including Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor, Tool's Danny Carey, Skinny Puppy's Nivek Ogre, and Revolting Cocks' Chris Connelly -- have often branched out into broader incarnations of heavy music, Pigface have remained true to industrial's pneumatic and scandalous roots. That said, the band were also a major influence on some of the genre's latter-day saints, specifically Marilyn Manson. Now, a new generation of fans will get to experience the band, as Pigface have announced their first tour in 14 years, and are performing with some very special guest musicians.
