Philip Anselmo Announces Solo North American Tour

Posted by on May 21, 2013

Did you enjoy hearing a new song from Philip (H.) Anselmo’s solo album Walk Through Exits Only last week? Then get excited, because you’ll soon get the chance to hear it live, as Anselmo has announced dates for his first ever solo North American tour.

The tour, being dubbed Technicians Of Distortion, will find the Down/ex-Pantera singer playing across the continent with his backup band The Illegals (guitarist Marzi Montazeri, bassist Steve Taylor, and Jose Manual Gonzalez on drums) over a three-week period in July/August. Providing support on the trek will be Warbeast (a band the singer has had a long time relationship with) and Auther And Punisher. “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 Exrteme Music audience properly,” Anselmo said in a statement.  “This is a killer program of insane variety, so come out and support the gigs!!!!”
