Following the release of their new EP, That’s The Way (I Like It) last week and music video premiere on none other than Pornhub (NSFW), <PIG> will be taking the stage in Denver, CO at The Ogden Theatre this on September 7th, alongside the almighty Killing Joke. Dates kicked off just over the weekend in Seattle and stretch throughout October, and with the tour just barely underway, fans can expect one hell of a performance at The Oriental Theatre on Friday. 

Grab tickets to the show HERE and watch the video for “That’s The Way (I Like It)” featuring author/singer/actress, Sasha Grey below. 

“I think its about time that people stop being ashamed and furtive in their relationship with <PIG>,” says Raymond Watts about the video – a cover of the perennial classic by KC & the Sunshine Band“Being on Pornhub puts us in the mainstream and will stop the stigma that has been attached to the secret and underground world of listening to <PIG>. People can stop listening to us in darkened basements in constant fear of being exposed… Our fans have lived in the fear of discovery for too long!”

Mastermind Raymond Watts and <PIG> have had a very exciting and active history since his beginnings in the late 80s.  Aside from his groundbreaking albums, he has been a visible part of the industrial music scene since the early 1980s. He has toured with KMFDM (of which he was also a member), Nine Inch Nails, Schaft, Schwein, and Einstürzende Neubauten, among others.  He has written music for fashion and film for Chloe, Marios Schwab, Halston, The Row and the sound design for the exhibit Punk: Chaos to Couture at NYC’s Metropolitan Music of Art.  But the most ground-breaking and perhaps most rewarding was his collaboration with the late and immensely celebrated fashion icon Alexander McQueen who commissioned Watts and his old Psychic TV partner-in-crime John Gosling to embellish the serene instrumental track “Inside” (from <PIG>’s Genuine American Monster album). The fluid soundtrack to McQueen’s masterpiece, Plato’s Atlantis, the show was reprised after McQueen’s untimely death as the finale of Savage Beauty, the posthumous retrospective that broke all records at The Metropolitan Music of Art in New York and Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
