PHILIP ANSELMO Says He Feels More Comfortable In The Underground Scene

SUPERJOINT RITUAL/PANTERA frontman Philip Anselmo has revealed to Kerrang! magazine that he feels more comfortable in the underground scene.

He says: "I'm a lot more at home. I feel better, a lot less stress, a lot less bullshit. I wasn't happy back there (in arenas) for a really long time. I can't even think. I was just not a happy man. But I can say, for the first time in a while, that I am a happy fella."

Anselmo has cast further doubt on the future of PANTERA, adding: "I never once said it was over, but, I'm not going to sit around and wait for anybody to make a decision. Life goes on, and shit, this is my life as well, so fuck, I'm tearing shit up!"

SUPERJOINT RITUAL's sophomore album, "A Lethal Dose Of American Hatred", is scheduled for release on July 22 through Sanctuary Records.

As previously reported, SUPERJOINT RITUAL will be filming a video for an as-yet-undisclosed cut from the album on Saturday (June 7) in their hometown of New Orleans. The video will be directed Tom Mignone (MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT), who had previously worked with the group on their "Live From Dallas" DVD.
