PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS are pleased to welcome former Cattle Decapitation bassist/current Scour guitarist Derek Engemann to the lineup. Engemann -- who takes the place of bass comrade Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force, Vaginal Bear Trap etc.) -- will make his live debut with THE ILLEGALS beginning next week on the band's Latin American tour where the band will be performing ILLEGALS tracks alongside a selection of Pantera hits.
Comments Anselmo of the new addition, "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."
Adds Engemann, "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!"
