Fall Tour With King Parrot Nears + VIP Meet And Greet Packages Available

View / Share PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS’ “Choosing Mental Illness” At THIS LOCATION

PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are pleased to unveil the official new video for “Choosing Mental Illness” from their Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue full-length released earlier this year via Anselmo’s own Housecore Records. Directed by Katherine Richardson-Anselmo with director of photography Mike Holderbeast and starring Michael St. Michaels (The Greasy Strangler), the six-plus-minute clip pays tribute to Miloš Forman’s 1975 comedy-drama, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

Issues Anselmo, “This video is based on one of my favorite films about the harshness of mental illness. Being up close and personal with the struggle, I often feel like R.P. McMurphy, who I play in the clip."

“I’ve had a lot of questions about the LP title, Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue and song title, ‘Choosing Mental Illness,’” he continues, “but make no mistake, I take mental illness very seriously, especially because it often goes untreated. We’ve taken some extra steps at the end of the video with information that you, or someone close to you might need.

“On a lighter note, it’s always a blast to do creative things like the video with my band, crew, and family. Bringing Michael St. Michaels into the fold was like having your favorite wacky uncle over for the holidays! He did a great job as our version of Nurse Ratched and he’s an absolutely lovable and talented guy…go see The Greasy Strangler!”

Following a successful maiden touring cycle for THE ILLEGALS, Anselmo hunkered down at his home studio in Louisiana to record what would become Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue in 2014 and 2015. The lineup shifted as Stephen Taylor (Superjoint) transitioned from bass to guitar, Mike DeLeon (Flesh Horder, Being Killed, ex-MOD et al) joined as a guitarist, and Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force, Vaginal Bear Trap) took over bass duties. Meanwhile, Jose Manuel “Blue” Gonzalez (Superjoint, Warbeast) held down the drums. Through rigorous rehearsals and writing sessions, a framework for the new music took shape.

Called, “fifty minutes of gnarly, vicious extreme metal…,” by Revolver Magazine, “an ever-shifting fusillade of extreme groove prog…,” by Decibel Magazine, “a schizophrenic musical expression that’s as insane as it is enjoyable,” by Blabbermouth and, “unquestionably one of the angriest and heaviest albums of Anselmo‘s career,” by Exclaim!, the critically-lauded offering is extreme, abrasive, aggressive, and anthemic. In other words, it’s purely Anselmo.

Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue is out now on CD, vinyl, and digital formats in North America via Housecore Records. Order bundles are currently available via the Housecore Store at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, go HERE.
