Down To Release Documentary, Writing New Music
Down/former Pantera bassist Rex Brown recently spoke to Billboard.com about the reunion of the band, new material and more. Some excerpts from the article are as follows:
"(Down) is gonna keep rolling," Brown says. "We're not getting any younger, and this is what we're kicking ass at. All that other stuff people were doing kind of cleansed itself out. There's no reason to take time off anymore. This is a band we can grow old in together, which is really cool."
Brown says there's "a lot of material left over" from last year's "Down III: Over the Under," which was recently released in a deluxe edition through Best Buy for Down's current live run. The outtakes will be considered for the fourth Down album, but Brown adds that the quintet is also "writing constantly on the road. We still have all these ideas, and we play a lot of new stuff at sound check, just to feel it out. Hopefully we can get back in the studio in the fall and work on something."
Before a new album, however -- and perhaps as soon as the first quarter of 2009 -- Down plans to release a documentary of its 2006 reunion after a nearly four-year hiatus, including both live and behind-the-scenes footage. "It's kind of about us learning how to walk together again," Brown says of the film, which is not yet finished and is so far untitled. "It just chronicles the life on the road of us starting to play again. We're right in the middle of it now."
