Phil Anselmo Hits the Road with the Illegals New Releases, Press Release Information Article by Keith Valcourt Anyone who has ever seen Phil Anselmo’s (Pantera, Down, etc.) live shows knows they are awe-inspiring. This dude is as serious as it gets. Not only will you get blistering original new tunes, but Anselmo is known to toss in a few choice Pantera classics. All are delivered with the fury and passion that makes Anselmo one of metal’s greatest living lead singers. That’s why we are stoked that in support of his first ever solo CD, the brilliant Walk Through Exits Only, Phil Anselmo and his kickass band, The Illegals (Marzi Montazeri on guitars (Superjoint Ritual), Steve Taylor on bass (16 Horsepower, Woven Hand) and former Warbeast drummer Jose “Blue” Gonzalez) start 2014 with a bang. The band hits the road for several intimate rock club dates on the second leg of their Technicians of Distortion tour, playing major cities including Houston, Denver, Los Angeles and Seattle. (See full schedule below.) Joining them for the gigs will be Author & Punisher (who played on the tour’s first leg) and the latest Housecore-signing (Anselmo’s label) avant-garde metal band Hymns. Also make sure you stop by the merch booth at all dates for exclusive Housecore releases, including the Horror Fest 10-inch vinyl and the new CD from Hymns. Video blast from Phil and the band, delivered from the darkest recesses of Anselmo’s Nosferatu’s Lair Studios.
