Last year, Martin Atkins (Ministry, Public Image Ltd, Nine Inch Nails, etc) appeared on a new Planet B song, and this year he's gearing up to take Pigface on their first tour in 14 years. He confirmed that longtime member Leslie “Ruby” Rankin and violinist Gaelynn Lea will be part of the band's lineup for this tour (both of whom also played the one-off 25th anniversary reunion in 2016), but Atkins is keeping the rest of the touring lineup under wraps for now. (In case you aren't familiar with who's been part of their rotating lineup in the past, check out the Pigface Wikipedia page for the list including Trent Reznor, Tool's Danny Carey, Flea, Genesis P-Orridge, The Jesus Lizard's David Yow, Black Francis, Michael Gira, Jello Biafra, and tons of others.)

The tour currently includes shows booked for this November in Cleveland, Chicago, Philly, NYC, Toronto, Atlanta, New Orleans, Austin, Denver, and more, and Atkins is promising that West Coast dates are TBA.

The NYC show happens November 19 at Le Poisson Rouge, and tickets for that show are on sale now. You can also purchase VIP packages for each date at Atkins' website.

All dates are listed, with a stream of Pigface's 1991 debut album Gub (home to the Trent Reznor co-written "Suck," which Nine Inch Nails famously re-recorded for the Broken EP), below.
