Former Pantera front man Philip Anselmo is set to release his first ever solo album this Summer. Walk Through Exits Only will be released Tuesday, July 16th through his own record label, Housecore Records (MRI/Megaforce). It will be available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl. The eight-track album was co-produced by Anselmo and Michael Thompson. It was recorded at Anselmo’s own Nodferatu’s Lair with his band, The Illegals.
Anselmo explained in his own words just what the album means to him and what audiences can expect from this upcoming release. “It wasn’t about doing a paint-by-numbers thrash or heavy metal record,” he said. “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.”
A tour to support the album is already being planned. Anselmo is currently up for an award in the “Best Vocalist” category at this year’s Revolver “Golden Gods” awards. He is expected to make an appearance at the awards show.
