It has been revealed that Philip H. Anselmo, legendary frontman of Pantera and Down, will release his first career solo album, Walk Through Exits Only, on July 19th via Season Of Mist in partnership with Anselmo's own Housecore Records.

Walk Through Exits Only will be available digitally, on CD and on vinyl and features artwork from Vance Kelly (Down, The Sword, Huntress). All physical editions can be pre-ordered here.





Produced by Philip Anselmo and Michael Thompson (Down), and recorded over the past couple of years at his New Orleans studio, Nodferatu's Lair, with his band The Illegals - guitarist Marzi Montazeri, bassist Bennet Bartley, and drummer Jose Manuel "Blue" Gonzales - Walk Through Exits Only is described as "abrasive, aggressive, anthemic and 100% Anselmo. The album's eight songs are as unrestrained as it gets, from 'Battalion of Zero' to 'Usurper's Bastard Rant', to the album's crushing title track. Brash, brutal guitars cut through punishing percussion as Anselmo screams with uncompromising ferocity and uncontainable fire."

Anselmo explains about the project: "It wasn't about doing a paint-by-numbers thrash or heavy metal record. 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 and a European tour following later.
