by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Philip Anselmo and his band The Illegals – guitarist Marzi Montazeri (Superjoint Ritual), bassist Steve Taylor (16 Horsepower, Woven Hand), and Jose Manual “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast) on drums – will hit the road this month for the second half of its Technicians of Distortion tour. 

The tour begins this Thursday in Houston, will play intimate rock clubs exclusively, and is in support of Anselmo’s first solo record, Walk Through Exits Only that was released last July, as well as the recently-released, limited-edition two-song Housecore Horror Fest 10-inch vinyl EP that will be available for purchase on all tour dates.

The avant-garde metal band Hymns (signed to Anselmo’s label Housecore Records) will open all shows. Hymn’s self-titled record will be available on all tour dates.
