PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS: 'Ugly Mug' Video Released

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS' video for the song "Ugly Mug" can be seen below. The track was recorded exclusively for Scion A/V to mark the inaugural edition of Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film and Music Festival, held in Austin, Texas this past October. Released as a free, limited-edition 10-inch single available only at the October event, "Pigs Kissing Pigs" and "Ugly Mug" are available for download via Scionav.com.

Anselmo's career-first solo album, "Walk Through Exits Only", sold around 8,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Produced by Anselmo and Michael Thompson, and recorded over the past couple of years at Philip's New Orleans studio, Nodferatu's Lair, with his band THE ILLEGALS — guitarist Marzi Montazeri (ex-SUPERJOINT RITUAL) and drummer José Manuel Gonzales (WARBEAST) — "Walk Through Exits Only" is abrasive, aggressive, anthemic and 100% Anselmo.

According to Anselmo, he worked on an estimated 15-17 songs for "Walk Through Exits Only", which was issued via his own Housecore Records (MRI/Megaforce)

"I could've put on any number (of songs) I wanted, but for me, these eight songs all together, 40-something minutes, that's my idea of a proper listening length," he tells Billboard.com. "When you start to get longer it gets a little redundant and boring, and I didn't want to bore anybody."
