Housecore Records Recording Artists Nest, Child Bite, and Snafu To Open Select Pantera and Lamb of God Shows Next Month

Heavy metal icons Pantera will return to the stage this February on the second leg of their North American headlining tour with special guest, Lamb Of God. Much like last Summer’s run, each show will feature an opening performance by one of three Housecore Records recording artists on select dates. Housecore Records was founded by Pantera frontman Philip H. Anselmo in an effort to release material by his many side projects and from other bands he’s supported throughout his career. Joining this leg of the tour will be St. Louis-based metal trio and recent Housecore Records signees Nest, featuring Scour/Agoraphobic Nosebleed bassist John Jarvis, as well as two Detroit juggernauts – art punk/noise metallers Child Bite and hardcore punk/thrashers Snafu (Situation Normal All Fucked Up) — both of which opened for Pantera in 2023.


Notes Anselmo, “I am very pleased Housecore bands will have the opportunity to play these shows; they’re all excellent and will deliver the goods, no doubt, so show up early!”

The bands comment:

Nest’s John Jarvis: “I’d like to thank Housecore Records, Lamb Of God, and Pantera for this incredible opportunity! I was lucky enough to see Pantera when I was 12, and if you had told me then that I’d open up for them on an arena tour in 2024, I would have called you crazy. Actually, I still don’t believe it as I type this, but it’s apparently happening! Thanks to everyone that’s helped us along the way and all Nest members past and present. It’s truly a dream come true and will probably go down as the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Child Bite’s Shawn Knight: “Oh boy, here we go! Pantera hath beckoned the BITE… again. Can’t wait to blast our brain-damaged jams in some MFing arenas. Winter too, so it’ll actually be dark when we play this time around! Philip, Rex, Charlie, Zakk… see you at catering [smooch]!”

SNAFU’s Scott Curnow: “Oh man, I can’t believe we get to do this again! Last Summer was absolutely insane for us. One minute we’re playing in a two-car garage to fifty people, the next minute we’re opening for Pantera and Lamb Of God in front of 13,000 people. What a trip! We’re forever grateful to the Pantera crew, the Housecore family, and Lamb Of God for having us back. We can’t wait!”
