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 the second half of its Technicians of Distortion tour. It begins January 10th 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.
