"VALUME NOB has been taking this time since we have returned from the U.K. to prepare our new member Sammy Molina for picking up the four-string. Sammy is as tight as they come. Kirk is not out of the band, but with DOWN being busy, we deciced to bring another man on board. When Kirk can make VALUME NOB duty,... we will move Sammy to second guitar, as he is a shredder on the six-string as well. We are moving right along with his progress, and we were recently asked to headline The Bayou Underground Metal Fest, a festival here in New Orleans on August 5th at The Howlin Wolf. Hope to see you all there!!!" More...
