PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS will be touring in support of their critically-lauded Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length, released 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.

 

The band recently unveiled the official video for the track “Choosing Mental Illness.” Directed by Katherine Richardson-Anselmo with director of photography Mike Holderbeast and starring Michael St. Michaels (The Greasy Strangler), the six-plus-minute clip pays tribute to Milos Forman’s 1975 comedy-drama, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and finds Anselmo playing the character of R. P. McMurphy.
