Down To Release Double DVD & Double Album Package

Stoner band DOWN are to release a double DVD and album of their euro tour 2005 October 4th 2010..
If sitting in a haze of smoke is your bag, then you are in good company as DOWN have already stated that this is their favourite pastime..




Down are the supergroup out of New Orleans, The DVD film documents the band’s first activity following the extended hiatus that followed the cycle of second album, ‘Down II: A Bustle In Your Hedgerow’ (2002).

The band’s iconic frontman, Phil Anselmo describes the film thus;

“The idea of reforming Down had been stirring in our collective guts since the Spring of 2005. There wasn’t a member of the band who hadn’t felt the pull…we just needed to get together and jam. It’d been four years since we’d all stood in the same room, let alone played music together. With no record label, no publicity, no opening band, nothing (!), we decided to test ourselves by basically doing a ‘word of mouth’ 6-week tour of Europe.

Adding more fire in our bellies was that the tour would be capped off by playing an ‘unannounced guest’ opening slot on the main stage at the Download Festival. Down had never been overseas in the band’s existence. The film is documented footage of the tour, screw ups and sour notes included. It’s raw and real and shows the re-rebirth of a little ‘side project’ from New Orleans that’s managed to stand the test of time for damn near two decades.”

The main feature runs for two hours and incorporates the documentary footage, interspersed with live performance tracks as follows:

Intro / Lysergic Funeral Procession / Lifer / Losing All / Rehab / New Orleans Is A Dying Whore / Ghosts Along The Mississippi / Learn From This Mistake / Underneath Everything / Temptations Wings / Something On My Side / Hail The Leaf / Lies / Perfection Of The Seed / Eyes Of The South / Jail / Stone The Crow / Bury Me in Smoke



As well as the DVD, there’s a twin audio CD set that includes a full ‘never-before-released’ live set from that same European tour. Tracklisting runs as follows:



CD 1
Losing All / Lifer / Lysergic Funeral Procession / Rehab / Temptations Wings / Ghosts Along the Mississippi / Learn From This Mistake / Hail the Leaf / New Orleans Is a Dying Whore

CD 2
Lies (I Don't Know What They Say But....) / Underneath Everything / The Seed / Eyes of the South / Jail / Stone The Crow / Bury Me In Smoke



DOWN are currently working on new material for their fourth studio album, which is set for a 2011 release.

The the band became inspired and sat down to constuct the follow up album Done - Over The Under released in 2007

down videos and bio

Video of Hail The Leaf



Down formed in 1991 with vocalist/songwriter Phil Anselmo of Pantera, guitarist Pepper Keenan of Corrosion of Conformity, second guitarist Kirk Windstein of Crowbar, bassist Todd Strange of Crowbar, and drummer Jimmy Bower of Eyehategod. All of the band members were longtime friends, and shared interest in bands such as Black Sabbath and Saint Vitus, which would significantly influence the music they made. The band made a three-track demo for underground trading.

In an effort to build a fan base, the band would ask heavy metal fans if they had ever "heard of this band, Down" and hand them copies of the tape without telling the person that they were in the band.[1][2] Eventually, the tape was distributed throughout the United States and Down played a small concert in its hometown. A record executive from Elektra Records was attending the show. When he found out who the members of the band were, he signed Down to a recording contract.. more - (bio wiki)
