The Skinny: Metal supergroup Down has unveiled their new track “We Knew Him Well” from their upcoming EP Down IV – Part Two, out May 13th via Down Records/ADA Music. Stereogum premiered “We Knew Him Well,” calling it “a titanic, bludgeoning deep-head-nod groove…it’s gloriously messy but locked-in in the way that only New Orleans metal bands can pull off.”
For the future, Down’s sights are set on endless touring. Longtime “family” member, stage manager and Honky guitarist Bobby Landgraf made his formal stage debut when the band headlined vocalist Philip H. Anselmo’s first annual Housecore Horror Film Festival in front of a packed audience of the faithful in October 2013. Now, it’s just about bringing that inimitable sound everywhere possible.
