(TRR) – Sludge metal supergroup Down have announced their first live show in four years. The band are scheduled to perform at Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium in June. Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the band’s debut album NOLA. The last time Down were on stage together was at Psycho Las Vegas in 2016.
Down’s original lineup consisted of vocalist Philip Anselmo (Pantera), guitarist Pepper Keenan (Corrosion of Conformity), guitarist Kirk Windstein (Crowbar), and drummer Jimmy Bower (Eyehategod). Windstein left Down on good terms in 2013 to focus on Crowbar and his family life. The guitarist recently premiered the first single from his debut solo album. Whether or not he will reunite with Down for their Graspop performance (and hopefully more shows) is unknown at this time. Guitarist Bobby Landgraf replaced Windstein in 2013.
Anselmo is currently on tour with his project Philip H. Anselmo and The Illegals supporting Slayer on the last leg of their Final World Tour dubbed “The Final Campaign.”
