HEADLINING TOUR BEGINS WINTER 2013 w/ SUPPORT FROM WARBEAST
DOWN IV: PART 1 OUT NOW!
“…a typically aggressive Anselmo vocal against a twisting, grinding musical backdrop.” Rolling Stone
“… Southern broasted, neck-snapping riffs, power-meets-sludge metal grooves, and Anselmo’s signature gravelly, dynamic vocals.” Premiere Guitar
“If the darkest corners of the New Orleans underground has an official sound, it is the gloriously bleak, punishing chug of Down.” Boston Herald
“Down exist in a space of their own. They're not worried about trends. They're not worried about expectations. They're not worried about anyone's opinion. All that matters is the music..” Artist Direct
New York, NY November 6, 2012 –Heavy metal icon collective DOWN will be hitting the road in January 2013 for a string of nationwide tour dates in support of their latest record, Down IV: Part I. Released September 18, 2012 (Down Records/Independent Label Group), The EP – a collection of dark, dangerous, and decisive metal tracks -- debuted at the top of the Hard Music Album Chart and sat comfortably at the #1 spot on Metal Radio for several weeks. See full tour dates below.
Live, the metal five-piece is larger than life. Their notorious dark and unique southern-infused brand of hard rock/metal
aggressively rips through the audience, and the mix of lead singer Phil Anslemo’s (Pantera) gut-wrenching vocals, Pepper Keenan (C.O.C.) and Kirk Windstein’s (Crowbar) grinding guitar riffs, Jimmy Bower’s (Eye Hate God) thunderous drums, and Pat Brunder’s (Crowbar) blasting bass cords leave even the most dedicated and hardcore of fans in complete shock and awe. DOWN are back with a vengeance, and intend to show everyone exactly why they are one of heavy metal’s most iconic figures.
