Exclusive: Philip Anselmo Reveals Superjoint Are Working on New Album
Superjoint have been ripping it up since reuniting last year. Currently on tour with Danzig, the band continues to spread the gospel of their two full-length albums, but in an exclusive interview with frontman Philip Anselmo, he revealed Superjoint will be releasing a new album!
Under the name Superjoint Ritual, the band released two modern powerhouses based strongly in hardcore; 2002's Use Once and Destroy and 2003's A Lethal Dose of American Hatred. No real rumblings of new music had yet been detected since Superjoint came back in 2014, but it's absolutely happening.
"The best thing is we're working on new stuff and hopefully get it out next year sometime," Anselmo shares. He goes on to speak about what fans should expect, "There is a groove element to it, but I don't want to toss that word around too liberally, because it'll give people the wrong idea … It's short, straight to the point, no bulls--t and we're close, we're really close. We're close to about 30-45 minutes of music … but we've got more writing to do."
Though Anselmo is constantly working on multiple projects, including Down, Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals and a new extreme metal band called Scour, Phil says Superjoint is his No. 1 musical priority as of right now. "Superjoint is a priority because, obviously, we're out now," Anselmo explains. "People are seeing us right now and I think that's what they need."
