VIP Pre-Sale Available NOW with General on-sale Beginning Friday, September 19th.

Metal legends Down have announced the Punk Rock But Kinda Not Tour 2014. The 15-date trek, which marks the band’s first proper headlining run in support of their new EP, begins on December 1st and makes stops throughout the West Coast, Midwest, and Canada (full list of dates below). Down will be joined by Orange Goblin, BL’AST!, and King Parrot. VIP package pre-sales are available here with the general on-sale beginning Friday, September 19th.

Down frontman Phil Anselmo says, “Down are coming your way with some killer fucking bands – so come out to the fucking shows!”

The tour is in support of the Down’s latest EP, ‘Down IV – Part Two,’ which was released in May via Down Records/ADA and was the band’s highest charting release to-date (#1 on iTunes’ Rock Albums chart; #23 on Billboard’s Top 200). The EP has been met with a slew of critical acclaim, such as Decibel who proclaimed, “From Phil Anselmo’s feral opening scream to his last spectral croon, Down doesn’t waste a hook or a minute of your time. Jimmy Bower’s beats are the perfect bar-brawling accomplices for the rowdy riffs conjured by Pepper Keenan and newcomer Bobby Landgraf, kicking the songs in the guts for extra giddy.” “We Knew Him Well” – the EP’s lead single – has also garnered praise, with Stereogum calling it “a titanic, bludgeoning deep-head-nod groove…it’s gloriously messy but locked-in in the way that only New Orleans metal bands can pull off.” The official video for “We Knew Him Well” was premiered on Billboard.com and can be viewed here.

With a collective resume encompassing Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Eyehategod, and Crowbar Down puffed out its first haze of sonic smoke from the underbelly of gritty old New Orleans on the 1995 platinum-selling classic, ‘Nola.’ Since then, the band has released ‘Down II: A Bustle In Your Hedgerow’ (2002), ‘Down III: Over the Under’ (2007), ‘Diary of a Mad Band’ live CD/DVD (2010), and ‘Down IV – Part One’ EP (2012). Their live shows have built a certain lore due to their fierce and loyal following with unforgettable runs alongside Metallica, Heaven & Hell, The Melvins, Black Label Society as well as coveted spots on Download, Soundwave, Hellfest, Bloodstock, and OZZfest.

The Down and Pantera frontman talks to us about the music he loves, the first album he had sex to and why he hates Metallica’s Load album.

Metal Hammer: The Album I First Bought Was…

Philip H Anselmo: “I think it was Kiss Alive! It’s very underrated. When people listen to Kiss’s body of work and reflect on their 40-plus years, it can be a little embarrassing, but honestly that first live recording is a very powerful rock album that should not be overlooked.”

Metal Hammer: The Album I Wish I’d Made Is…

Philip H Anselmo: Slayer – Hell Awaits “When Hell Awaits came out, the sound and production of metal was going through many changes. Besides Trouble, the first band that really stepped it up for crunch was Metallica with Kill ’Em All. That’s fine and all – it’s a classic record – but I’m a sucker for odes to Old Nick, so I’ll take Hell Awaits for its creativity and absolute disdain for all things Christian.”

It’s been nearly five months, but we’ve finally got another episode of metal’s most brutal animated culinary series, ‘Cooking Hostile,’ and this fresh episode is by far the weirdest one to date. Yeah, the past three episode are a little out-of-the-box, but Episode Four of ‘Cooking Hostile’ is ‘Adult Swim’-on-mushrooms weird.

Much like the first three episodes of the online series, metal meets cooking thanks to a bit of wordplay and some seriously talented animators. However, this latest clip is the first to actually feature Pantera / Down legend Philip Anselmo voicing his own character, along with a cartoon version of Ozzy Osbourne.

Before actually collaborating with creator Joey Siler, Anselmo gave ‘Cooking Hostile’ his seal of approval. “Whoever did it is f—ing hilarious,” raved Anselmo. “It’s fantastic and I give him two gigantic thumbs up because it is fuuuuuuny. I love it.”

Episode Four, titled ‘The Dream,’ delves into the sleeping mind of Anselmo, where the cooking competition show ‘Slawtered’ takes place. Participants in the tripped-out show include Chris CornellBucketheadChuck Billy and many others along with Osbourne and Anselmo.

Episode Four may be the best ‘Cooking Hostile’ creation yet, so check it out in the video above!

Ste of PMT conducted an interview with DOWN guitarist Bobby Landgraf at this year’s edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, which was held August 7-10 at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

Bobby joined DOWN last fall as the replacement for Kirk Windstein, who left the band to focus on CROWBAR. A longtime “family” member, stage manager, and HONKY guitarist, Landgraf “was immediately at home,” according to DOWN singer Philip Anselmo, and contributed to the songwriting process for the band’s latest EP, “Down IV – Part Two”, which was released on May 13 via Down Records/ADA Music.

“Bobby had always been that guy ‘in case of anything,” Anselmo explained. “Knowing his personality, he really locked in with what we do and took it to heart. He made himself belong. Honestly, the first day he came down he contributed a very strong riff to a key song. There’s that Southern element, which is imperative. I also catch a real old heavy metal vibe from this record. I can’t stress this enough. He took it all on, and he did a fucking awesome job.”

DOWN guitarist Pepper Keenan added, “Even with the lineup differences, it’s interesting how the songs still sound very DOWN.

“Bobby and I have always locked in. It’s not just physically either, but mentally as well. We see eye-to-eye, and he’s been watching for a long time.”

“It was a big deal for me,” beamed Landgraf.

“I drove ten hours up from Texas that first day, cracked a beer, and plugged in. We jumped right into the room, and I played this part. They all smiled. That was the moment for me.

“I’m a longtime fan, and I knew we were friends, but being a part of the writing and working towards something together was just incredible.

“As a guitar player, one of my goals was to be in a group like this. I want to make everyone proud.”

“Down IV – Part Two” sold around 10,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 23 on The Billboard 200 chart.

The band’s previous EP, “Down IV Part I – The Purple EP”, opened with around 12,000 units in September 2012 to land at No. 35.
