Reactivated American metal icons, SUPERJOINT, who feature within their ranks members of Down, Eyehategod, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Warbeast etc. – will kick off a near two-week long US tour tomorrow. Presented by frontman Philip H. Anselmo’s own Housecore Records, the It Takes Guts takeover marks the band’s first official touring venture in over a decade! The caravan of chaos will commence Friday, July 10th in Oklahoma City and ravage its way through thirteen US cities with support provided by punk metal/noise rock misfits, Child Bite, and Australian grind miscreants, King Parrot, both members of the Housecore Records family.
Now featuring Anselmo (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Pantera et al), guitarists Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) and Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), drummer José Manuel Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals) and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power), the long-anticipated trek follows SUPERJOINT‘s first ever performance in Europe at this year’s edition of Hellfest last month in Clisson, France. View the live footage at below.
Anselmo recently spoke to Rolling Stone Magazine about SUPERJOINT’s return and more. Check it out HERE.

CHILD BITE will be touring in support of their Strange Waste EP, a deliciously bastardized hybrid of the Melvins, Dead Kennedys, Big Black and Faith No More, released last Fall via Housecore. The band recently tracked their forthcoming new full-length with Philip H. Anselmo at his famed Nodferatu’s Lair. Titled Negative Noise, the LP will be released later this year via Housecore.
SUPERJOINT churns out a debaucherous crossover of hardcore punk and metal a la Pantera and unleashed two critically-lauded full-lengths – 2002’s Use Once And Destroy and 2003’s Lethal Dose Of American Hatred – before taking hiatus in 2005.
