The second edition of Phil Anselmo's Housecore Horror Festival will go down at Emo’s in Austin, Texas, right before Halloween, between the unhallowed dates of October 23-26. Joining an already stacked bill of performing talent is the reunited Superjoint Ritual, the Anselmo-fronted hardcore band that wreaked havoc from 1993 to 2004, when they broke up.

“If people want to hear Superjoint jam a badass set, then we’re all for giving the people what they want!" Anselmo enthuses. "You wanna hear it? Then bring your asses to Austin, Texas, this October 23-26!”
