Phil Anselmo Announces First-Ever Full-Length Solo Album

  • Axl Rosenberg

Philip H Anselmo & The Illegals - Walk Through Exits OnlyI’ll keep this short n’ sweet, because we don’t actually have any new music to listen to yet. But it’s big news when a legend like Phil Anselmo (the ninth best frontman in modern metal!) announces his first-ever full-length solo album.

And so, from the official press release:

“Philip Anselmo, legendary frontman of Pantera and Down, will release his career-first solo album, Walk Through Exits Only, on July 16 via his own Housecore Records (MRI/Megaforce).  Walk Through Exits Only will be available digitally, on CD and on vinyl.”

The album was produced by Anselmo and Michael Thompson, and features Marzi Montazeri on guitar and Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzales on drums. It’s also apparently been in the works for a few years now.

Although this news isn’t surprising given that Anselmo recently released his first solo tracks as part of a split with Warbeast, I really, really dug his side of said split, and I’m stoked to hear more. Hopefully a first single will be made available soon.
