Philip Anselmo and his backing band the Illegals have just embarked on the 2014 winter leg of their Technicians of Distortion Tour in support of the 2013 album 'Walk Through Exits Only.' Prior to the trek, Anselmo and his Illegals drummer Jose Manuel 'Blue' Gonzales took some time to chat with Loudwire about the album.

In the video above, Anselmo discusses his mindset going into making 'Walk Through Exits Only,' how his everyday life is addressed in the tracks 'Bedridden' and 'Bedroom Destroyer' and what influences him musically. Meanwhile, drummer Blue briefly talks about working with Anselmo.

Anselmo's current trek features his band performing songs of the debut disc, along with favorites from Pantera and Superjoint Ritual. You can check out the full list of tour dates here. And be sure to pick up 'Walk Through Exits Only' at iTunes.
