PHILIP ANSELMO checks in at High Voltage Fest.
PlanetBrowny.com conducted an interview with DOWN/ex-PANTERA singer Philip Anselmo when DOWN performed at this year’s High Voltage festival at the end of July in London, England. An excerpt from the chat can be viewed below. The entire interview is available here.
According to an August 24, 2010 tweet from the French branch of Roadrunner Records, the label has set an October 11 French release date for “Diary Of A Mad Band”, the long-awaited new DVD from DOWN. Meanwhile, Amazon.com is listing an October 5 U.S. release date for the disc, which will feature footage of DOWN members “tearing up Europe” — literally and figuratively — on their first European tour. This special DVD/CD collection contains over 130 minutes of live video material and a full, never-before-released concert. (Note: The CD is different from the DVD.)
DOWN bassist Rex Brown has fully recuperated from his fight with pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas which can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment.
In October 2008, DOWN released a “deluxe edition” of its critically acclaimed third album, Over the Under. The deluxe package, which was made available as a Best Buy exclusive, included a DVD with over 30 minutes of previously unreleased live performances and behind-the-scenes footage.
The album was released on Down Records in conjunction with Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group (ILG).
