Down, which is fronted by Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo, is now streaming Down IV Part 1 – The Purple EP via Billboard. The first of four scheduled EPs, The Purple EP will be released Sept. 18th. It is the first Down release to feature Crowbar bassist Pat Bruders (who replaces Rex Brown). You can stream the album below.
Anselmo tells Billboard, “It’s obviously easier to knock out six songs rather than 12 songs. Me personally, I hate doing full-length records ’cause it drains the f*ck out of you. And (an EP) leaves ways less chance for songs that you’d consider filler songs to get through. I think it’s the healthiest way for Down to continue to get music out on a reasonable schedule.“
