Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals are coming out guns blazing on “Choosing Mental Illness,” the first song from The Illegals’ newly announced Choosing Mental Illness as a Virtue album. Anselmo snarls over razor-sharp riffs and pounding rhythm section on “Choosing Mental Illness,” teasing a violent and aggressive tone for the new record.
Choosing Mental Illness as a Virtue will be released on January 26 via Anselmo’s Housecore label in the U.S. and Season of Mist in Europe. It will be Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals’ second album, and first new music since 2013. Physical pre-orders are available here, with digital pre-orders coming Friday.
