Superjoint Ritual to Reportedly Reunite for Upcoming Tour
Published May 13, 2015Ask yourself, Superjoint Ritual fans: Are you ready for yet another lethal dose of American hatred? Following last fall's one-off reunion show at vocalist Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Film Festival in Austin, the band are now apparently in talks to undertake a full tour.
The announcement comes from drummer Joey Gonzalez, who confided in an interview with AXS that the oppressive metal outfit intend to get together for more shows.
Gonzalez, who also plays in Warbeast and Anselmo's back-up band the Illegals, didn't say when the tour would start or how far they'll go. It's also unclear if bassist Hank Williams III, who was apparently forced to bow out of the 2014 reunion gig for personal reasons, will be a part of the upcoming performances.
It is, however, expected that, as with last fall's performance, they'll be billed as "Superjoint," for legal reasons.
Late last month, Anselmo debunked a rumour that Superjoint would be heading out on the road with High on Fire, stating over Facebook that while it's a nice idea, it was also "bullshit." He did promise, however, that Superjoint shows were on the way.
The band had issued two full-lengths before their initial disbandment in 2004, the last of which being 2003's A Lethal Dose of American Hatred.
