Philip Anselmo, legendary frontman of Pantera and Down, will release his career-first solo album, Walk Through Exits Only, on July 16 via his own Housecore Records.
The album was produced by Philip Anselmo and Michael Thompson and recorded over the past couple of years at his New Orleans studio along with his band The which is comprised of Marzi Montazeri/guitar, and drummer Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzales.
“It wasn’t about doing a paint-by-numbers thrash or heavy metal record,” Anselmo explained about the project. “It’s an angry album that only I could do. I don’t see anybody else out there screaming about the same shit I’m screaming about. On this album, there isn’t any wordplay, there isn’t any hidden message, it’s all right there in front of you.”
Anselmo and the Illegals will support the new album with a major North American tour planned for this summer.
