PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS released their critically-lauded Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length earlier this year via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records. Crowned, “fifty minutes of gnarly, vicious extreme metal…,” by Revolver Magazine, “an ever-shifting fusillade of extreme groove prog…,” by Decibel Magazine, and, “unquestionably one of the angriest and heaviest albums of ANSELMO‘s career,” by Exclaim!, Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue is extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic.

Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue is out now on CD, vinyl, and digital formats in North America via Housecore Records. Order bundles are currently available via the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders and to stream the record in full, go HERE.

American noise rock/hardcore punk/heavy metal band CHILD BITE formed in 2005 in Detroit, Michigan. The band’s core members are founding vocalist Shawn Knight and long-time bassist Sean Clancy. CHILD BITE has released four full-length albums and ten EPs over the past twelve years, all featuring artwork by Shawn Knight. Their recently-issued two-disc anthology, Burnt Offerings, features twenty-four tracks of rarities and covers recorded between 2010-2017. To date, CHILD BITE has played nearly nine-hundred shows throughout Europe and North America, including tours supporting acts such as Down, Voivod, Negative Approach, Superjoint, Poison Idea, and Unsane. Earlier this year, the band completed a month-long Australian tour with labelmates King Parrot… and the caravan rolls on.
