Superjoint's Phil Anselmo

Phil Anselmo Readying New Project En Minor Influenced By The Cure, Sisters Of Mercy, Etc.


Phil Anselmo (Down/Scour/Superjoint, ex-Pantera, etc.) has an unconventional project in the pipeline called En Minor that should surface next spring. Speaking recently with Jimmy Cabbs (see below) he said:

“I have a record coming out that’s been finished for two years almost now, of course—just like every other fucking record. It’s with a band called En Minor. And I guess it would be my, ‘Hello, great dark eighties of Sisters Of Mercy, of The CureSeventeen Seconds‘ record and ‘Faith‘ album.’ Early The Cure. Early U2. Nick Cave and the fucking Bad Seeds or The Birthday Party. David Bowie… I take all these influences and then somehow we came out with results.

“It is what it is. I’ll let the people decide at the end of the day. And we’ll see. But, once again, I’m not shootin’ for radio time here; I’m just trying to broaden my horizons, write some harkening songs. But I think they have their own life, honestly. It’s retro only to a certain degree, I think, within me, because I know where it’s coming from. But I guess when a listener hears it these days, most people react… I hear the word ‘cinematic’ a lot, and I hear, ‘This is the best record you’ve done in thirty years,’ or some shit like that, something like that.”

Prior to its release, Anselmo has a November 03rd release date set for Scour‘s new EP “Red” and is also planning to release a new album from his Phil Anselmo & The Illegals project.
