Philip H. Anselmo will take to the road for his first-ever solo tour, “Technicians of Distortion,” which will kick off July 31, 2013 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.
The Technicians of Distortion tour is in support of Anselmo’s upcoming solo release, “Walk Through Exits Only,” due out July 16, 2013 (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!”
