Biography

Piggy D.
The Evacuation Plan

"Piggy D walked away from hurricane Katrina only to realize the storm was the warm up gig."

In the last 15 years, across 10 countries, hundreds of thousands have witnessed the relentless
passion on stage that is Piggy D.

From the knife-fight of a stage show that was AMEN (2002-2004), to the shocking and  eye-
catching WEDNESDAY 13 (2004-2006) and now beside ROB ZOMBIE, Piggy has owned his
corner of the stage as a guitarist and a bassist since the age of 15.
 
Now with the release of the new album 'The Evacuation Plan', Piggy D comes to yet another
crossroads: taking the reins as frontman, musician, and sole writer. The hard rock opus he has
created documents the break-ups of bands, love relationships, and that daunting task of
starting over after losing it all.

Piggy wrote 35 songs for his long awaited debut album, living in exile from his home in New Orleans
just after the hurricane. He dove headfirst into the experience pulling all the lyrics from journals
kept throughout the years. The result was a compelling collection of brutally honest rock songs and
unexpected epic ballads.

At the first line of the opening track 'Brave or Faithless', he takes you back to the heart of it all with
unflinching lyrics and a hook that grabs ahold of the listener and won't let go. Perhaps the most
poignant moment on the record is to be found in the anthemic 'Roll Call'. Its simplicity and
enduring strength under the worst of circumstances makes it an ode to anyone who ever felt left
behind.

Joined in the studio by drummer Tommy Clufetos (Rob Zombie), guest vocalist Calico Cooper,
and co-producer Dave Spreng (Damone), Piggy completed the album in the spring of 2007. July 31 marks
the indie release of a candid and exhilarating story. It’s a story of survival in the face of stunning
opposition and a victory of the spirit that reminds us that love CAN conquer all.

Lyrics

Roll Call (NOLA Mix)

Written By: Matt "Piggy D." Montgomery

Am I unhearable
Unseeable
Unreadable
Could I be unusable
Unspeakable
Unthinkable
Maybe I’m unlovable
Untouchable
Unreachable
Because I’m too retreatable
Unneedable
Defeatable
Am I unbearable
Unsure able
Incurable
If I weren’t so gullible
Resalable
Discountable
I might be enjoyable
Employable
Or fuckable
I wish I were unkillable
Unbeatable
Unbleedable

If I could be anything I would be something to you
So love me or hate me
Don’t leave me in the middle unused

Am I unholdable
Uncontrollable
Inconsolable
Because I’m expendable
Unmendable
Undependable
Then I’ll be unmerciful
Undenialable
Unforgettable

If we could be anything
We would be something to you
Love us or hate use don’t leave us in the middle abused

This is for the unlistable
I wanna count the dismissible
Dance with the despicable
I wanna kiss the unkissable
I wanna crown the replaceable
And all those in the middle
Maybe we’re too…
When we could be…
From now on I am…
And you should be…

Last Man on Earth

Written By: Matt "Piggy D." Montgomery

If the world were flooded full
Of hate and tears and mud
I'd save you little black cat
From any tree I could
And when the vampires
Start to smell your blood
I'll carve you a crucifix
From my coffin wood
And I'll be at your side and screaming
If I was the last man on earth
Could I stay with you tonight
If you don't believe these words
Without you I'll be alright
Could I be there for you
If what I say is true
Then that makes me the last man on earth
If the sky should turn to black
My eyes can be you light
But holding on to me right now
Probably don't feel right
When they try and rain on you
Or cover you in fear
Take shelter under me
The only one left here
So let me be your shadow crawling
If I was the last man on earth
Could I stay with you tonight
If you don't believe these words
Without you I'll be alright
If what I say is true
then that makes me the last man on earth
And there's lots of things waiting in the dark
But I'm the only creep that broke you heart
So let me be you shadow crawling
If I was the last man on earth
Could I stay with you tonight
If you don't believe these words
Without you I'll be alright
Could I be there for you
If what I say is true
Then that makes me the last man on earth

Ladies Night

Written By: Matt "Piggy D." Montgomery

There was no message left on my phone
When I home tonight
I hope you didn’t leave in anger
I hope you drove with some daylight

I tried to say I’m sorry
But I spit when I fight
You said you need a break from me
If it’s just a weekend or a night

I’ll drink this kamikaze
Because I always fall on my own knife
It’s another round of hurricanes here at table 9
Don’t forget to throw a hand grenade
At the hearts that’s out of sight
So you drove down to New Orleans
Where it’s always ladies Night

I woke up early in the morning
Your perfume stained the pillow here
Still no call, will you come home at all
With some forgiveness or a tear

So I’ll drink this kamikaze
To pretend I have no fear

It’s another round of hurricanes here at table 9
Don’t forget to throw a hand grenade
At the heart that’s out of sight
So when you drive down to New Orleans
See the ghosts of Ladies’ Night

If there’s a storm coming down on you tonight
As you drive home I turn on the lights
To remind you that my love is something safe
And something right

The news came on at 10 to say
She had changed her mind
Instead of heading east away
She’ll hit home tonight
I hope you can get out in time
Leave early on this Ladies Night

It’s another round of hurricanes here at table 9
Don’t forget to throw hand grenade
At the hearts that’s out of sight
When you drove away from home tonight
It might be your last time
When you go down to New Orleans
Where my heart is out of sight
So when you drive down to New Orleans
See the ghosts of Ladies’ night
