The highly anticipated lineup for Philip Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival has been released and the first-time festival features loads of heavy music. Down, Eyehategod, Goatwhore, Whitechapel, Pig Destroyer, Goblin, Anselmo and his solo band The Illegals, and Crowbar are some of the most noteworthy names on the bill, but you know you can’t have the inaugural Horror Film Festival without GWAR!! The legendary front man, Anselmo, has issued the following statement regarding all of the bands on the bill:
“For a cat like myself, bringing in all of these killer bands to play the Housecore Horror Film Festival is nothing but pure pleasure. I’d like to thank all of the bands from all over the globe that are on the bill. I feel like we’ve compiled an extremely versatile line-up of established acts, as well as some killer up-and-comers. I’d also like to give a huge ‘thumbs-up’ to all of the Austin, Texas bands that will be a huge part of this crazy event, because it seems these bands fly way too far below the radar. As for what bands I’m most excited about? I don’t need to call out specific bands…just look at the list yourself and get pumped! I hope everyone who plans on attending the Housecore Horror Film Festival is digging on the band line-ups, as well as the films, like I am. Let’s have a blast!”
The three-day festival will take place in Austin, TX from October 25-27 and will also include the screening of over 50 horror films alongside the incredible lineup of metal acts. In addition to film screenings and nightly concerts, HHFF will also host several “Side Show” attractions – from zombie makeovers to suspension exhibitions to exclusive horror- and metal artisans and vendors.
