And that there’s the cover.
I never knew Phil Anselmo’s pores were so deep.
The legendary former frontman of Pantera and current leader of Down will release his career-first solo album, Walk Through Exits Only, on July 16 through his own Housecore Records.
Walk Through Exits Only will be available digitally, on CD and on vinyl.
Produced by Philip Anselmo and Michael Thompson, and recorded over the past couple of years at his New Orleans studio, Nodferatu’s Lair, with his band The Illegals, Walk Through Exits Only is described in a presser as abrasive, aggressive, anthemic and 100% Anselmo.
“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.
