Fun Fun Fun Fest Backstage Interview Reveals Details of New Eyehategod and Down Albums

Metal Underground.com caught up with Jimmy Bower backstage at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2011. The Eyehategod guitarist and Down drummer updated us on his two bands' upcoming albums and tours.

"Yeah, we’re almost done," answers Bower on the topic of the new Eyehategod album. "We’ve pretty much have gotten it written. We’re just trying to practice it and get it tight. We’re hoping for the first of the year (for release). Basically, we just have to record it. Brian [Patton] lives in Maryland, now, so that makes it a little tougher. Mike [Williams] lives across the lake."

Bower addresses new song titles, "We played one song tonight, 'New Orleans is the New Vietnam.' There is a (new) song called 'Medicine Noose,"

Bower will join Down on tour and will see the release of the group's new EP in 2011. Bower elaborates, "We just finished our first EP out of four. That should be out in February or March." Bower did not attach any profound concepts to releasing four EPs: "It’s just an idea that we had."

The forthcoming Eyehategod album follows the group's 2004 EP "99 Miles of Bad Roads." The Fun Fun Fest performance was part of a mini-tour through New Orleans and Texas. The upcoming Down EP follows the group's 2007 full-length effort, "III-Over the Under."
