Philip Anselmo: Superjoint Ritual Reunion ‘Is a One-Off, a Hundred Percent’
After the announcement that Superjoint Ritual would be reuniting to play together during the 2014 Housecore Horror Film Festival, there have been questions about whether the band would be doing anything after that show. Now, frontman Philip H. Anselmo says it will just be a one-time performance.
In a recent interview with Jack Antonio that you can listen to here, Anselmo says (transcription via Blabbermouth), "It is a one-off, a hundred percent, as of right now, man. It's something that we get asked about quite a bit, but, really, for us, if you look at the guys that are in the band, original members, it's really me and Jimmy [Bower, guitar], and, of course, we've got Kevin Bond coming in on guitar and whatnot."
Anselmo continues, "But, really, if you look at just Jimmy and me alone, we're gonna be crazy busy coming up in 2015 as well, and Jimmy with Eyehategod and whatever obligations Down decides to take on. But I think the main focus of next year would be, maybe around summer time, is getting [to work on] that third [Down] EP. And other than that, man, I wanna write another solo record and produce some bands. So, [there will be] not as much touring for me next year."
He also says, "We realize this is the end of the push for this year, and Superjoint just happens to be part of it. It's gonna be fun, man. It's gonna be a blast."
Along with Superjoint Ritual, other bands slated to play Housecore include GWAR, Danzig, Voivod, Samhain, Eyehategod, Neurosis, Cattle Decapitation, Portal, Corrections House, Mobile Deathcamp, Warmaster and more. This year's event runs Oct. 23-26 in Austin, Texas.
