PIG, Darkly and Sasha Grey Collaborate on KC & the Sunshine Band's "That's That Way (I Like It")"
Set for release on August 31, 2018 via Metropolis Records, “That’s The Way (I Like It)” is a seemingly unlikely collaboration with author/DJ/singer/actress Sasha Grey. “Sasha is a total joy to work with,” he says. “She's has an intuitive understanding, a great sense of humour and great delivery. She completely got the idea of the song working as duet and it is a true <PIG> / Sasha Grey collaboration.”
While “That’s the Way” has been covered by other artists as musically diverse as Dead or Alive, Giorgio Moroder and Spin Doctors (!!!), <PIG>’s version follows a different path... a darker and sinister one. “Bless them all but the <PIG> version is definitive ... enough said ... and they don't have Sasha Grey,” he laughs. “The song was never really in my orbit although I was aware of it,” he explains. “I was kicking around ideas for potential covers for <PIG> and my girlfriend suggested this song. I took a listen and heard the lyric in a way that wasn't smutty or titillatingly suggestive but much darker and a little bit threatening.”

In addition to the release of the EP, <PIG> will be hitting the road with punk/metal/industrial legends Killing Joke. “To be asked by the mighty Killing Joke to tour the US with them is indeed a great honour,” he beams. “They have been present for the whole of my time working in music but our paths have never crossed until now. I have always been a great fan of Youth's production skills in particular so I was thrilled when he agreed to remix the <PIG> & Sasha Grey single That's the Way (I like It) for a 10 inch limited vinyl only available on the tour.”
The tour will encircle North America including kicking off on Sept. 1st at Seattle's El Corazon til Oct. 6th final date in Tustin,CA's Marty's on Newport with stops in Los Angeles (Sept. 5 @ Regent Theater), NYC (Sept. 12 @ Irving Plaza), and Detroit (Sept. 28 @ Smalls).
