Official press release:

Philip Anselmo and his band The Illegals - guitarist Marzi Montazeri (Superjoint Ritual), bassist Steve Taylor (16 Horsepower, Woven Hand), and Jose Manual "Blue" Gonzalez (Warbeast) on drums - will hit the road bright and early in 2014 for Leg Two of its "Technicians of Distortion" tour. The trek kicks off January 10 in Houston, will play intimate rock clubs exclusively, and is in support of Anselmo's first solo album, the critically-acclaimed Walk Through Exits Only that was released last July, as well as the recently-released, limited-edition two-song Housecore Horror Fest 10-inch vinyl EP that will be available for purchase on all tour dates.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, November 22 - log onto TheHousecoreRecords.com for all ticketing information.

Reprising his support slot from Leg One will be Author & Punisher, while the avant-garde metal band Hymns (signed to Anselmo's label Housecore Records) will open all shows. Hymn's self-titled album will be available on all tour dates.
