HOUSECORE RECORDS hardcore punk act ARSON ANTHEM and MySpace Music are currently streaming the band’s entire upcoming October 12th release, Insecurity Notoriety, right now! Head over to the MySpace Music main page to be directed to the stream.
ARSON ANTHEM is comprised of metal greats Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual), Hank Williams III (Superjoint Ritual, Assjack), Mike IX Williams (Outlaw Order, Eyehategod), and Collin Yeo (Ponykiller). The band was brought together in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, with Mike Williams moving into Anselmo’s spare apartment after his home and possessions were destroyed. Through this connection, Williams and Anselmo spent time listening to Anselmo’s irreplaceable hardcore music collection. The members relived the days of early 80’s hardcore bands, such as Discharge, Negative Approach, Sheer Terror, and many others. It didn’t take long for the music to squash their cabin fever, and inspire them to create a new venture that is now ARSON ANTHEM. Anselmo knew of the underrated, yet unbridled percussion skills that he and William’s mutual friend Hank Williams III possessed, causing the contact to be made and the band to come together. Finally, bassist Collin Yeo was recruited, and the sound was born. “All we had to do was meet and jam,” states Anselmo. “Fucking perfect, fucking real, fuck all.”
