Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals Add Derek Engemann (Scour, Ex-Cattle Decapitation) To Their Lineup


Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals have announced the addition of former Cattle Decapitation bassist Derek Engemann to their lineup. Engemann exited Cattle Decapitation early last year and has since been performing with Anselmo in Scour. He replaces Walter Howard in The Illegals with Anselmo commenting of the matter:

Derek is a brother; he’s solid, driven, and talented. It’s awesome to have him onboard and I look forward to jamming and writing with him. We’re lucky to have him.”

Engemann himself added:

“I’m very excited to share the stage with mi hermanos in The Illegals! It’s also truly an honor to pay such a great tribute to Dime and Vinnie!”

The mention of Dime and Vinnie above of course comes from the band’s increasing frequency to perform material from Anselmo‘s former outfit Pantera at live shows. Engemann will make his live debut with the band during their upcoming South American run, here’s where you can catch the band in the coming weeks and months:
