Down Reveals New, Untitled EP Tracklisting

New Orleans supergroup Down has revealed the tracklisting (in not particular order) for the forthcoming, as-yet untitled EP, which presently has no release date. Speaking about the songs and the EP, lead vocalist Phil Anselmo (formerly of Pantera and Superjoint Ritual) stated:

"Interesting. Before I say anything, I will say this. On this — and in the past — I write to basically give an outline and let the listener garner for themselves how they want to apply their own rules and regulations to the track. For me, I find one of the biggest realities of life is that no two men, no two cultures, no two belief systems are really the same. There's a lot lyrically where I'm kind of at odds with mankind's relationship with mankind. . . I guess it's more simple to say than ever doing it, such is history, but these days instead of ruffling feathers, I much prefer… put it this way, I'd rather have friends than enemies, any day.

"It's easy to make an enemy. It's easy to be negative. It's very easy to slip into that, but it's very tough to come with love. All you have to do is open up a newspaper and you can see for yourself, man. Right here in my own city, people are killed every day. Me, as a person, there's no way I could sleep at night if I'd done any of those things. It makes me wonder: what the fuck are those people thinking? There is this thug worship that has led a lot of promising youngsters down a terrible path, a sometimes-irreverisble path. You take somebody's life, as an adult, you're 16 years old and you're fucked. I guess when I sat down to write this record, that's where my head was at."

The tracklisting is as follows:

Levitation
Witchtripper
The Misfortune Teller
The Curse Is A Lie
Open Coffins
This Work Is Timeless
