Anselmo drops Walk Through Exits Only, his first-ever solo album, on July 16, and is followed by this tour, which runs for three weeks over 16 markets. Warbeast, also signed to Anselmo's Housecore imprint, as well as Author and Punisher, a one-man industrial doom and drone metal project, will open.
"It is an incredible pleasure to do my first solo tour with my brothers in Warbeast and to introduce the mighty Author and Punisher to the Extreme Music audience properly," said Anselmo. "This is a killer program of insane variety, so come out and support the gigs!!!!"
