Martin Atkins is bringing Pigface out of retirement this fall for the group's first tour in 14 years. We knew that longtime member (and onetime Silverfish singer) Leslie “Ruby” Rankin and violinist Gaelynn Lea would be part of the lineup but now Barker has announced the full crew who will be part of Pigface on this tour:

  • Martin Atkins (Ministry, PiL, Killing Joke)
  • Mary Byker (Gaye Bykers on Acid, Pop Will Eat Itself)
  • Lesley Rankine (Silverfish, Ruby)
  • Curse Mackey (Evil Mothers)
  • En Esch (KMFDM)
  • Dirk Flanigan (77 Luscious Babes)
  • Bobdog Caitlin (Evil Mothers)
  • Bradley Bills (Chant)
  • Greta Brinkman (Moby, Druglord)
  • Charles Levi (My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult)
  • Orville Kline (Porn And Chicken)

It turns out Gaelynn Lea is not playing all dates but is on a lot of them: November 15, 16, 25, 26, 28, 29 & 30. But wait, there's more! Pigface will also be joined by Lamb of God's Randy Blythe from November 15-19 (that includes the NYC stop on 11/19 at Le Poisson Rouge); ex-Kittie guitarist Fallon Bowman on 11/17; and Ali Jafri on 11/17. As the poster above notes, the tour will also feature "occasional appearances" from Bruce Lamont, Justin Pearson, Martin King, Jim Marcus, Leanne Murray, Krztoff, Joe Letz, Jesse Hunt, Roger Ebner, Leyla Royale, Joel Gausten, "and more!!"
