Phil Anselmo’s new venture, Scour, has released a new track, titled Tear Gas. The song is taken from Scour’s self-titled debut EP, which will be released on 15 July 2016 via Anselmo’s Housecore label. Scour is an extreme metal supergroup, featuring members from Cattle Decapitation (Derek Engemann), Pig Destroyer (John Jarvis), Animosity (Chase Fraser) and Strong Intention (Jesse Schobel).
Guitarist Derek Engemann says: “Tear Gas was the final song written for the debut EP. It was completed backstage on the Cannibal Corpse/Cattle Decapitation tour last year. Every day Jarvis and myself would ‘scour’ for an isolated, quiet spot to set up my portable recording studio. I remember specifically Rob Barrett walking in during the tracking of this song, and gave his nod of approval. [Laughs] This song has a chorus section at the end that is unique to this album. Once it was finished, I sent it to Phil to write the lyrics. Of course, the kid completely just nailed the chorus. ‘Let the war be waged…'”
