Candlelight Records announces the worldwide signing of New Orleans' Crowbar. The band's addition further strengthens the label's already formidable roster, including 1349, Zyklon, Khold and the home to Emperor and early Opeth catalog.
"Life's Blood For The Downtrodden," the band's label debut, is expected to see a February 8, 2005 stateside release date. Final studio work on the album produced by the working team of Warren Riker (Down) and Rex Brown (Pantera), is planned in Miami August 14-September 1. Upon completion it will be the band's first studio album in over three years.
Founded in 1989, Crowbar from the onset found an immediate fanbase that today continues to grow. The band released their debut, "Obedience Through Suffering," in 1992. The album would be followed a year later with the highly regarded, Phillip Anselmo-produced Crowbar. The album has sold over 100,000 copies to date. Additional albums, "Broken Glass," "Time Heals Nothing," "Odd Fellows Rest," "Equilibrium," and 2001's "Sonic Excess in its Purest Form," would be supported by worldwide tours, both headline and in support of Pantera, Black Label Society, Napalm Death, Paradise Lost and others. Windstein with original bassist Todd Strange, in addition to Crowbar, served time in Down - the band project by Anselmo and Corrosion of Conformity's Pepper Keenan.
Crowbar recently completed a 11-date European tour, including a performance at Germany's With Full Force Festival and Pressure Fest. The band currently features founder, vocalist/guitarist Kirk Windstein, bassist Patrick Bruders, guitarist Steve Gibb and drummer Tommy Buckley.
Candlelight Records, with offices in Philadelphia and headquarted in London, is distributed exclusively in the US by Caroline Distribution; in Canada by PHD Canada; throughout the rest of the world by Plastichead Music Distribution.

Crowbar mainman, Windstein, recently told Metal-Inside.de that the group's long-awaited new album, 'Life's Blood For The Downtrodden', will be mixed after the band return from their German tour in August and is unlikely to surface before early 2005.
