Superjoint's Phil Anselmo

Philip Anselmo Says He Doesn’t Feel Like Doing Superjoint Anymore, Speaks On Possible Down “NOLA” 25th Anniversary Shows


Philip Anselmo has revealed that his current interest in doing Superjoint has been waning lately, recently telling Metal Underground as much while also discussing the potential future for Down. When asked about the plans he has in store for those two groups, Anselmo replied:

“I don’t really feel like doing Superjoint anymore. With Down, we’ve got the 25th anniversary coming up of ‘NOLA‘ [in 2020], so I would expect to do some gigs there. But also it needs to be respected that Pepper is doing C.O.C.; Jimmy‘s really been doing a lot of Eyehategod as well; and Kirk is doing Crowbar. And that’s one thing: if we do anything for the 25th anniversary of the ‘NOLA‘ album, I want Kirk in the band. I don’t wanna interrupt anybody’s life. If we do something, it’ll be a couple of shows here and there, maybe a special thing.”

Down themselves have been on hiatus since Anselmo‘s infamous usage of racist gestures and remarks at the 2016 ‘Dimebash‘ event. Anselmo went on to apologize for his actions numerous times, more recently refering to it as an ‘off-color joke’ earlier this year.
