Down III Coming Soon

DOWN and former PANTERA bassist Rex Brown checked in to the band's official site, down-nola.com, to let fans know what's going on in the world of Anselmo and co.

In a forum message Brown mentioned that DOWN's next studio effort, "Down III" would be coming "real soon", as well as certain tour plans and other exciting releases. The bulk of his post reads as follows:

"Look for DOWN to tour the Pacific Rim, then South America while writing two records at one time. We got tons of acoustic stuff... So we're gonna do that, re-release the first album with me on bass, re-master Down II.. and we still got the DOWN film to go... so lot's of cool stuff about to happen..."

What's Next?

I thought NOLA was f***ing awesome, i'm very pleased to hear that it will be remastered with Rex On Bass, he's the shizzle.

As for the new album, I think it is great that it will happen, and I just hope that it will be as hardcore as the first and second!!!

It's not a war until the whole world is fighting, so stop your crying BRujeRIA. And be glad German-decended Texan-Americans like myself don't run the world or p***ies like you would be made to bring me my alcohol while I kicked your families asses right in front of you.

I visited Dime's grave the other day and while I'm not a Down fan, I think the music should go on cause he prolly would have wanted that. Bad blood aside, death shouldn't mean the end of creativity. I saw SJR a couple years back and they kicked ass, and I don't even like Phil anymore because of his comments. But the more metal the better.

cant wait...1st and 2nd albums kicked a$$....and 3 will hold its own to whatever is out there....whats out there is mostly untalented crap...both down albums were different and had a wide range of ecclectic music with them...most bands cant handle changing styles like down does....ignore the smack talkers and bring on the jams guys.....DOWN..!!!!!!!!

I enjoy this band. Killer riffs and a great frontman. I hope this works out for all parties involved. Last 2 albums were great. Wish they could tour with Black Label Society though. LOL. That would make my day. BLEED BLACK LABEL!!!!

Well, I kinda go along with Vinnie that Phil's comments helped to cause Dime's death. But I don't think Phil should go away. He's too good a musician. I dunno, I just think the music should go on.

And hell yeah Texas should be our own country!
