Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals Tour Postponed

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals‘ U.S. tour with King Parrot has been postponed until late summer/early fall 2018. Comments Anselmo:

“I’ve decided to delay the Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals/King Parrot tour until August-September. As many of you know, I had a second back surgery in late January. I’m having an incredible recovery, but just want to be one-thousand percent when I get to jam the new Illegals with all my brothers and sisters. My apologies for jumping the gun extend to the fans, my fellow Illegals, King Parrot, our crews, and all mechanical parties involved, but we will all see it’s the right decision soon. See you cats and chicks in the fall! Much love, as always.”

Down Returning To The Stage

After cancelling some shows due to the outrage over the white power outburst and Pepper going full force with COC, Philip Anslemo recently addressed the future of Down at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.

“I think between myself, Patrick Bruders and one James Bower from EyeHateGod… We haven’t seen much of Pepper, because he’s obviously been busy with COC. That’s the freedom that rock and roll brings. So, yeah, we’re all kind of doing our own things but we always come back together because Black Sabbath, Trouble and Saint Vitus bring us back together, and that’s where we started from, you know what I’m saying?”

Down has now confirmed to play the Psycho Las Vegas music festival taking place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 26th-28th 2016. More info can be found here. There are no other confirmed shows at the moment.

You can check out an audio recording of some of the Anselmo question-and-answer session in Louisville by listening to the “Talk Toomey” podcast at this location. More...

Phil Anselmo Suggests Down Go On Without Him

It's been a bad week for Phil Anselmo, with everyone from Robb Flynn of Machinehead to All Shall Perish calling him out after his "white power" shout and Nazi salute at Dimebash.

Phil issued an apology video, although that wasn't enough to save his band Down from real-world repercussions, as the organizers of the FortaRock festival booted the band off this year's bill.

Now it seems like Down itself is in peril of breaking up, as Anselmo posted this message online via his official website:

"To all this will concern, every citizen in this entire world has the unalienable right to live with dignity and respect without hate or oppression. And I mean this, with all of my crushed, yet, guilty heart.

"It’s common knowledge that we can choose to either learn from our mistakes, or continue on a path of insensitivity and destruction.

"I am utterly responsible for the mistakes I have made, and can only give you my word to no longer do them in the present, through ACTION, not just mere words.

"My band mates are now experiencing the consequences of my behavior, and I now publicly apologize to them as well. Never in my entire lifetime would I drag them down with me, and I’ve privately suggested to them that they move on without me.

"My biggest obstacle(s) are the over-indulging in the booze and blurting out spiteful, ignorant reductions of the human spirit itself. I will address these issues, head-on. I’m repulsed by my own actions, and the self-loathing I’m going through right now is justified by the hurt I’ve caused. More...

Housecore Horror Festival III Coming

Metal frontman and Housecore Records founder, Philip H. Anselmo, is bringing his horror-themed film and metal festival back for a third year. After a great ride in Austin, the festival will kick off in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater on November 13th -15th, 2015.

The decision to return was driven by the desire to honor his friend and festival co-founder, Corey Mitchell, who tragically passed away last October.

Mitchell was the driving creative force behind the festival's success, and Anselmo believes there is no better way to pay tribute to his friend than to carry on for a third year. "I've got a great team in place to help make this what Corey and I wanted it to be," he says. "There are a lot of mixed emotions here because no one can replace him. But, we know he would want this to continue and so that's what we're going to do. We miss him and think about him every day."

Bands already confirmed to play are Suffocation, Autopsy, Cripple Bastards, Nails, SYk & Dalila Kayros, YOB, Eyehategod, Child Bite, Warbeast and many more to be announced soon. Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor will be booking bands this year and will help Anselmo craft a musical lineup that would make Mitchell proud.

In addition to showcasing the best in extreme metal, the festival will screen film gems from the personal vaults of both Anselmo and Mitchell. Horror filmmakers are encouraged to submit their films and winners will be selected in various categories and given the coveted Rot-Scar Award. "When Corey and I started this thing, it was important to us that we help independent filmmakers get their incredible work discovered," Anselmo continues. "Nothing has changed, in that respect."

Tickets to go on sale soon - stay tuned for additional announcements. More...
