For the first time in their 16-tear-old career, grindcore masters Pig Destroyer have a bassist in their line-up: John Jarvis, cousin of the band’s drummer Adam Jarvis. According to guitarist and founding member Scott Hull, “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.”

As for John, he states “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.”

John will make his live debut with Pig Destroyer precisely today, October 27th, at the Housecore Film Festival curated by Phillip Anselmo in Austin, Texas.

Their latest full-length, “Book Burner”, was released last year, but in 2013 they’ve also released an EP titled “Mass & Volume” as part of a charity effort to benefit the family of recently deceased Relapse Records employee Pat Egen. And last month, the single “The Octagonal Stairway” saw the light of day as part of the 2013 Adult Swim Singles Series.
