SAINT VITUS – To Headline 2009 Roadburn Festival

Philip H Anselmo

TMD Rocks!

The label has already launched an EP by ARSON ANTHEM, a group that features Anselmo on guitar, singer Mike Williams, bassist Collin Yeo and SUPERJOINT RITUAL bassist Hank Williams III on drums.

The group formed after Williams, who lost everything he owned in Hurricane Katrina, moved into Anselmo's spare apartment. They spent hours listening to Anselmo's extensive collection of early hardcore, and before long, they started jamming.

"Obviously Mike and I have a history, from high school, to touring together with EYEHATEGOD opening for PANTERA," Anselmo states, frankly.

"After Hurricane Katrina, I bailed him out of jail and put him up at Nodferatu's Lair [a space on Anselmo's property]. His apartment and everything he owned burned down in the post-Katrina riots. We always wanted to start a hardcore band. III and I were in Superjoint Ritual together, but I knew he was a drummer from when I first met him when he was in his teens. … Collin was a young musician, he was in town at the right time, and it all fit perfectly."

Recently, Texas Metal Alliance (feat. Bruce Corbitt of Rigor Mortis) signed to Housecore and are tentatively scheduled to record the band's debut album in New Orleans starting April 10.

"There's a lot more to come from Housecore Records," Anselmo added. "Always remember this is not just a 'metal' or 'heavy' label. The roster is very diverse in musical styles and tastes."
