PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS will join forces with Housecore labelmates KING PARROT this spring for a US live takeover. Still in its plotting stages, the trek will take place from mid-May to mid-June with full routing details to be announced in the coming weeks.

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS will be touring in support of their Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length, released early this year via Anselmo's own Housecore Records. Called, "fifty minutes of gnarly, vicious extreme metal...," by Revolver Magazine, "an ever-shifting fusillade of extreme groove prog...," by Decibel Magazine, "a schizophrenic musical expression that's as insane as it is enjoyable," by Blabbermouth and, "unquestionably one of the angriest and heaviest albums of ANSELMO's career," by Exclaim!, the critically-lauded offering is extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic. In other words, it's purely ANSELMO.

Following a successful maiden touring cycle for THE ILLEGALS, the frontman hunkered down at his home studio in Louisiana to record what would become Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue in 2014 and 2015. The lineup shifted as Stephen Taylor (Superjoint) transitioned from bass to guitar, Mike DeLeon (Flesh Horder, Being Killed, ex-MOD et al) joined as a guitarist, and Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force) took over bass duties. Meanwhile, Jose Manuel "Blue" Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast) held down the drums. Through rigorous rehearsals and writing sessions, a framework for the new music took shape. "Every song is full of relentless anxiety, tension, and malice," writes Metal Wani, "Seeking solace is not in the cards as the death-tinged hardcore brutality within this album is terrifying. However, there is a bit of a cathartic release that only the tortured vocals of PHIL ANSELMO can provide."

Unhinged Australian grind unit KING PARROT released their Ugly Produce full-length upon the masses last fall via Housecore Records in North America. Captured at the infamous Goatsound Studios in Melbourne, Australia and produced by Blood Duster's Jason Fuller, Decibel Magazine fittingly crowned the offering, "...deranged and exceptionally catchy...," while Rolling Stone Australia hailed a, "visceral ball of fury wrapped in sarcasm and grime that's both terrifying and hilarious at the same time." Wrote Metal Injection of the band's captivating live performance, "You haven't lived a full and robust life until you've paid witness to the unhinged energy its members convey, the between song banter which oozes cutting, Down Under humor, and bassist Wayne 'Slatts Slattz' Slattery's shit-eating grin and his making come hither eyes at his instrument like he's trying to seduce it into some back alley rumpy-pumpy instead of playing intense bursts of thrashing grind."

Ugly Produce fuses the raw fury of KING PARROT's critically-lauded debut album Bite Your Head Off and mashes it with the twisted sophistication of their ARIA-nominated follow-up Dead Set. A repugnant harvest of gnarled and nasty grind, death metal, thrash, and punk rock, the band's unique, over-the-top sound is ever prevalent and honed further on Ugly Produce while remaining true to the fundamental ideals the band started with: angst, aggression, absurdity, and antics.

KING PARROT's journey with THE ILLEGALS follows their month-long Australian headlining tour set to commence this weekend.
