Down Releases III, Goes Out and Tours

After releasing two records mainly as a side project, the band got together in the months before Hurricane Katrina to start working on new material. The band reconnected in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina with a newfound purpose and focus on DOWN, and began work on their most ambitious record to date. Having already tapped Warren Riker, who produced their 2nd release, DOWN II-A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, the band demoed some 18 songs in Nodferatu’s Lair, Philip Anselmo’s studio in the swamps, with engineer David “Puma’ Troia. In February of 2007, the band commenced recording on their 3rd and most committed record to date. Recorded in Los Angeles between February and July, 15 songs were ultimately cut for OVER THE UNDER. The result is over 60 minutes of genre-defying music further solidifying their place at the forefront of heavy rock as only DOWN can do.

DOWN is Philip Anselmo from Pantera, Pepper Keenan from Corrosion Of Conformity, Rex Brown from Pantera, Kirk Windstein from Crowbar, and Jimmy Bower from Eyehategod.
