Written by News

I know I’ve been pretty hooked on DOWN news lately, but hey : it’s just one of the most anticipated metal bands in the world !

So yeah, after some concrete infos about every member’s activity, we got fresh and crispy infos about the start of a POSSIBLE TOUR. Ya heard me. A few U.S dates have been planned, it’s the beginning of something beautiful, my friends…

• 3/4/11 – The Hangar – New Orleans, LA
• 3/5/11 – The Cotton Gin – Maxwell, TX
• 3/6/11 – Warehouse Live – Houston, TX
• 3/11/11 – The Hangar – New Orleans, LA
• 4/28/11 – Best Buy Theatre – New York, NY
• 4/29/11 – Trocadero – Philadelphia, PA
• 4/30/11 – Starland Ballroom – Sayreville, NJ

Here’s also what Phil Anselmo said in a recent interview :

“Yeah. Man, there will be a time for DOWN. Matter of fact we had a meeting this past week, and I know Jimmy’s [Bower, drums] gotta go do an EYEHATEGOD tour in February. But after that, I think we’re looking to do some shows starting in March. Maybe local around here, maybe even some Mardi Gras gigs. But yeah, last week we sat around and they played me some new stuff they’re working on, and it sounds good. Sounds like it’s got a lot of promise, and really they just need me in the fuckin’ practice room. So all this is going to happen this year. It has to happen. I know there’s a responsibility here. DOWN has a fan base and they are very, very, very loyal. So I don’t want to let those people down. They deserve some new music, we have it. We’ve demoed other songs, there’s songs that haven’t even been released that people have never heard, so there’s always DOWN there. For all you people out there, don’t you stress. We got the DOWN coming.”
