Philip H. Anselmo’s band En Minor will release their debut full-length album, ‘When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out,’ on September 4th via Phil’s own Housecore Records (pre-order: Physical + Digital).
Here’s more on the band via the official annoncement:
An experimental and eclectic musical endeavor that finds Anselmo exploring a softer, graver vocal style, EN MINOR is an honest and deliberate change of pace delivering brooding tales of pain, regret, and sorrow. At once ugly and beautiful, EN MINOR features the collective talents of Stephen Taylor (Superjoint, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Wovenhand, 16 Horsepower), Kevin Bond (Superjoint, Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al), Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod, Down, Superjoint), Calvin and Joiner Dover (The Dover Brothers), and Steve Bernal (former first cellist in the Temple Symphony Orchestra).
To coincide with the news, En Minor have unleashed (via Revolver) the impending LP’s first single, “Blue,” which you can stream below.
Here’s a little more info on the forthcoming effort:
EN MINOR’s When The Cold Truth Has Worn Its Miserable Welcome Out was recorded and mixed at Anselmo’s Nodferatu’s Lair Studio on the Northshore outside of New Orleans, Louisiana and will see release in North America on September 4th via Housecore Records with Season Of Mist handling the release in Europe and Ward Records handling the release in Japan.
