UPDATED!!! All the current info on the upcoming Superjoint release.

Superjoint will be releasing the new album “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” on Nov 11, 2016.

The current roster of Superjoint is:
Philip H. Anselmo: Vocals
Jimmy Bower: Guitar
Kevin Bond: Guitar
Joey “Blue” Gonzalez: Drums
Stephen Taylor: Bass

Jimmy Bower: Sticking to our true hardcore roots and signature SUPERJOINT sound, we accomplished a record that needed to happen in today’s underground. It’s pissed off! This record brings our viscous style of hardcore back to life.

Philip H. Anselmo: The overall theme (of the album) means many things, or no things, but there is an underlying message regardless, about how modern technology — computers and all that comes with them, mainly — has affected our lives. As a musician, it has affected my life both negatively (music being stolen) and positively (being in touch with fellow musicians around the world and staying visible). But when looking at the broader spectrum, computer-land has given everyday people a platform in which to bellow like carnival barkers about anything and everything, humdrum or political, whether qualified or not, some with good intentions, some with disingenuous intentions, and some with ideas that lay somewhere in the middle, creating a mishmash of results.

We know you have been waiting (not so) patiently for this! The Great Southern Trendkill: 20th Anniversary Edition will be released on October 21, 2016. This two-disc set includes the original album remastered, plus a dozen previously unreleased mixes, instrumentals, and live recordings. (Preorder now: smarturl.it/trendkill20)

Also being released on October 21, 2016, is a single LP titled THE GREAT SOUTHERN OUTTAKES featuring 10 of the unreleased tracks. (Preorder now: smarturl.it/gsouttakes)

More details on previously unreleased material:
The companion disc that accompanies the original album features an unreleased version of every album track, including two versions of “Suicide Note Pt. 1” – a rough mix of the track, along with a separate version of the introduction, which spotlights Dimebag on 12-string acoustic guitar. The second disc also features a newly remixed version of the title track, rough mixes for “Drag The Waters” and “The Underground In America”, as well as instrumental takes for “13 Steps To Nowhere” and “Living Through Me (Hell’s Wrath)”. In addition to the studio recordings, the anniversary collection features three live tracks recorded at the Dynamo Festival in Holland in 1998: “War Nerve”, “Suicide Note Pt. II” and “Sandblasted Skin”.

Philip will fill In for Mike IX Williams on two EYEHATEGOD shows later this month

Philip will be filling in for EYEHATEGOD vocalist Mike IX Williams on two upcoming shows: The first at Southport Music Hall in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 19th and the second at the 2016 edition of Gwar BQ in Richmond, Virginia on August 20th

From Mike Williams’ Facebook:
“Due to some recent very important health issues I am dealing with, I would like to announce that Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Superjoint etc..) will be filling in for me at two special EYEHATEGOD gigs; New Orleans, LA’s Southport Hall – August 19th and the 7th annual GwarBBQ – August 20th in Richmond, VA.
Phil has my full blessings for these shows & with all forces willing, I will return to the stage as soon as I am physically able.”

Paraphrased From Philip:
“When our brothers in one of New Orleans’ most influential music outfits needs me, I’m there, one-thousand percent. There is no secret that I adore my brethren in EYEHATEGOD, as I’ve always supported them through thick and thin. This present situation will be no different. In light of Michael D. Williams’ health issues, which he needs to address more importantly than any other point in his life, and should be respected by anyone with a heart, I will do my best to fill in for him. Those are mighty big shoes to fill, but I shall do my best, once again. I do believe I speak on the behalf of all concerned parties when I state that we all need Mike IX Williams to heal, recover, and get better, as soon as possible. These gigs are not about me; it is about keeping the obligations of EYEHATEGOD, as a band and force, able to stay true to their commitments to these two gigs. My admiration of Mike and all of his works, especially EYEHATEGOD knows zero boundaries, hence, me doing these gigs. Here’s to Mike’s recovery, and here’s to supporting these shows on his behalf. Much love to everyone.”

Philip addresses the differences between Zakk and Dime’s playing.

Philip also took a question from the audience about the differences between Dimebag and Zakk Wylde. This is how it went:

Philip confirms Down will be back.

After cancelling some shows and Pepper going full force with COC, Philip addressed the future of Down at his open/public interview on June 26 at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall in Louisville, Kentucky.

“I think between myself, Patrick Bruders and one James Bower from EYEHATEGOD… We haven’t seen much of Pepper, because he’s obviously been busy with COC. That’s the freedom that rock and roll brings. So, yeah, we’re all kind of doing our own things but we always come back together because Black Sabbath, Trouble and Saint Vitus bring us back together, and that’s where we started from, you know what I’m saying?”

Down has no confirmed plans for the future other than the Psycho Las Vegas music festival taking place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 26th-28th 2016. More info here: http://psycholv.com/

You can check out an audio recording of some of the Anselmo question-and-answer session in Louisville by listening to the “Talk Toomey” podcast at this location.

Philip’s thoughts on “rock stars” and meeting guys like Ozzy, Dio, and Lemmy.

Philip had a public interview and Q&A session at the Diamond Pub Concert Hall on June 26 and Geek TV was there to capture some of it.

Philip releases first track from his new band “Scour”. Hear it here.

SCOUR

SCOUR is:
Phillip H. Anselmo – Vocals
Derek Engemann (CATTLE DECAPITATION) – Guitar
Chase Fraser (ANIMOSITY) – Guitar
John Jarvis (PIG DESTROYER) – Bass
Jesse Schobel (STRONG INTENTION) – Drums

Philip told decibel Magazine: “Doing the Scour project was a blast,” Anselmo tells Decibel. “The track, ‘Dispatched’ was the first one I attacked, as it was the first one sent to me. Lyrically, I leave it to the listener to evaluate, as usual. The way I saw it, the songs were short, and extremely straightforward, so I didn’t want to clutter ‘em up with too much. Therefore, I had to pick particular lyrics that seemed provocatively absurd enough, and to perform them as raw as deemed fit. Hope all true extreme music lovers enjoy the stuff as much as I did performing it. A huge cheers to all the awesome collaborators on this project… Much love to all!”

“Scour” track listing:

03. Crooked

New interview with PHA & The Illegals/Superjoint drummer Joey “Blue” Gonzalez by myglobalmind.com

From myglobalmind.com:
What’s a musicians’ dream come true?
Id say to be able to do what they love for a living.
What’s a teenage musicians dream come true?
To play with their musical heroes I would guess.

Combine those two and you get (insert ring announcer’s voice) Jose Manuel Gonzalez aka Blue also known as the guy who hits so fucking hard Peridore made him his own drumstick because the others kept breaking.

If you are not familiar with Mr. Gonzalez – He is the drummer for such bands as Warbeast, Superjoint and PHA and the Illegals.

MGM would like to note that this was my first skype interview and Mr. Blue made it very fun and entertaining as well as gave me some good hair tips!

Let’s begin!
