Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals To Embark On "Technicians Of Destruction" Tour

Philip H. Anselmo will take to the road for his first-ever solo tour, "Technicians of Distortion," which will kick off July 31st in Tulsa, OK.

On this tour, Anselmo will be joined by his back up band The Illegals - guitarist Marzi Montazeri, bassist Steve Taylor, and Jose Manual Gonzalez on drums. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, May 23rd.

The Technicians of Distortion tour is in support of Anselmo's upcoming solo release, "Walk Through Exits Only," due out July 16th (Housecore Records/Megaforce) and will take the group to a total of sixteen markets over a three-week period.

Warbeast, which is signed to Anselmo's Housecore Record label and just released new album "Destroy" (produced by Anselmo), along with industrial doom and drone metal one-man band Author and Punisher, will provide support on all dates.

"It is an incredible pleasure to do my first solo tour with my brothers in Warbeast and to introduce the mighty Author and Punisher to the Extreme Music audience properly," said Anselmo. "This is a killer program of insane variety, so come out and support the gigs!"

Cozen: 2 times so far. Last one was at a smaller venue here in Charlotte. My review is posted here in the forum. Title is "My 2nd Down Experience"...Last show I saw was Clutch/The Sword/Lionize here in Charlotte at Amos' Southend. Review is there also. Are you going to get pics or vids at the show?

Guess I could. I'll only he armed with my iphone5 though. Probably won't be too close either as I usually don't arrive until the main act.

BTW- I saw Deftones in Myrtle beach this past March. Holy $hit was I impressed. I've seen TOOL 6 times and this Deftones show definitely ranks. 21 track setlist. Acoustics were perfect at House of Blues. Not a fanboy exaggeration...I wasn't expecting it.

I remember your review now...thought of it after I posted. It's been a while.
