[update] Also, the new line-up has been announced. Along with original member Graham Crabb will be:

Mary Byker (Co-vocalist)
Crabb: “I have known Mary since 1987 since his days with Gaye Bykers On Acid. He always was a likeable fella and charmed his way into Pigface in the US, before co-fronting UK electronic band Apollo 440. Now living in Brazil, writing music for films and documentaries & has opened a bar. Still writes & records as Magnetic Empire with DJ Harry K. He was an automatic first choice.”

Davey Bennett (Bass)
Crabb: “Currently works with electro, industrial rock band ‘This Burning Age’. Davey is always taking on new and interesting live and studio projects ranging from punk to bizzare instrumental. He has toured alongside the likes of The Blackout, Mendeed, Breed 77, Strung Out and Kids In Glass Houses.”

Tim Muddiman (Guitar)
“Is a very busy musician who was recommended by a mutual friend. He plays in Gary Numan’s band, is part of Sulpher with Rob Holiliday & Monti. He is currently working with Mignon, featuring members of Peaches and Sweet Machine. Tim is also very busy in the studio as an up and coming producer with credits to working with Slash and Fergie with Ade Fenton.”

Jason Bowld (Drums)
“I always admired Jason’s drumming in Pitchshifter and jumped at the chance of using him on the new PWEI record.. He’s now an in-demand session drummer and recently stood in for Bullet For My Valentine on their most recent tour as well as playing for Killing Joke and Bill Bailey. Live, he’s going to be awesome.”
