PIG DESTROYER Enlists New BassistWednesday, 23rd October 2013
Kings of grindcore PIG DESTROYER have a new addition to their ensemble. Adam Jarvis’ cousin John Jarvis has joined PIG DESTROYER and is now the band’s first bass player. John will make his live debut at the Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, Texas on October 27.
Bassist John Jarvis comments: “It’s an honor to be a part of PIG DESTROYER. I’m looking forward to making new music with the guys, as well as adding some ‘low end’ to the older material live.After being able to see every incarnation of the band live in the past, I can honestly say that the guys are at the top of their game. See you at Big Phil’s Housecore Horror Fest!!!”
Founding member and guitarist Scott Hull added: “Having John come into the band adds the ability to expand musically into new territories that we haven’t explored yet. For many years, we haven’t had a bass player or second guitarist because, as JR once put it; ‘mo people, mo problems.’ But a band is a living organism. Change is good. New blood. New energy.
“We’ve had great experiences adding Blake before ‘Phantom Limb’ and Adam before ‘Book Burner’. Both additions to the family have had huge positive impacts on the band. We’d thought about adding a bassist for some time, but it always seemed like it would be more of a hassle than anything else. John has come in like a soldier and has mastered everything we’ve thrown his way. We’re excited for you guys to hear how the older material sounds with an expanded low end and can’t wait to get to work on new material.”
PIG DESTROYER released their fifth studio album, Book Burner in October 2012 via Relapse Records.
