FORBES MAGAZINE: PHILIP H. ANSELMO On The Comeback of Vinyl Records

Earlier last week, Forbes Magazine posted an in-depth piece on the comeback of vinyl and Record Store Day, written by Tim Clark. In a time where people are quick to label the current state of the music industry as “failing” or “experiencing a downfall”, Tim Clark points out that the independent record store experience illustrates otherwise.

Down vocalist and Housecore Records CEO Philip H. Anselmo was interviewed for the piece, and gave his personal thoughts on the rise in record store activity and how it supports growth in the music business and community. As one of the leading voices of the recent indie label and independent music takeover, Forbes looked to Anselmo has a voice of authority.

From Forbes piece:

“When he was younger, Anselmo used to constantly scour underground record stores and to this day still believes in the vinyl format. ‘Record Store Day promotes this type of passion of having the actual product in your hand instead of just a download,’ said Anselmo. ‘I love having the full album, art, lyrics and I think vinyl sounds better. And as a label owner, it makes me happy to see that people slowly but surely want to have this tangible copy in their hands instead of a free [expletive] download, which is driving me [expletive] bananas.’ Record Store Day is now celebrated on the third Saturday every April is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music.”

Forbes calls Record Store Day, ‘an industry phenomenon.’

CASEY ORR (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) To Fill-In On WARBEAST Tour

WARBEAST is pleased to announce that Casey Orr (Rigor Mortis, GWAR) will join them as their fill-in bassist while on the road this spring. The upcoming Fate or Chaos Tour with GWAR and Wilson kicks off in Tucson, AZ on April 10.

WARBEAST vocalist Bruce Corbitt states, “Obviously, we are all psyched to have Casey on board for this upcoming tour with GWAR and Wilson. I’ve always respected Casey’s professionalism, abilities and musicianship from our many years together in Rigor Mortis.” He continues, “this will be a natural and comfortable fit for WARBEAST. Plus, he’s still buds with all of the guys in GWAR, so this tour will be a blast… to say the least.”

“I am very excited to accept the challenge of playing bass for the mighty WARBEAST! I’m looking forward to crushing skulls with my brothers in the Beast, and I’m totally stoked to be bringing the thunder on the road this April, supporting my Scumdog family – GWAR,” adds Casey Orr. “Texas Thrash will Destroy!”

“This by far will be the most solid lineup to date with Casey Orr joining us for this tour. I’ve known him all of my life and it just seems right,” adds WARBEAST guitarist Scott Shelby. “Casey is hyped as well, as is the whole band to move on to this new era and continue to Destroy!”

“I’m looking forward to the rhythm section being tighter than ever,” states WARBEAST drummer Joey Gonzalez. “I know Casey will be killer to learn from and jam with.”
