Kirk Windstein, who has spent much of 2007 recording and touring behind DOWN's third album, "Over the Under", has issued the following update on the current status of his longtime band CROWBAR:
"As y'all know, I've been very busy with DOWN. But fear not, children of doom. I've been down in Miami writing CROWBAR tunes with [fellow CROWBAR guitarist Steve] Gibb. It's coming along really well, so get ready!! Also get ready for the new KINGDOM OF SORROW [the collaborative project featuring Windstein and HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta] CD coming out on Relapse on February 19th. It absolutely crushes!!"
CROWBAR's video for the song "Slave No More" can be viewed below. The clip was included on the band's DVD, "Live: With Full Force", which came out in North America in January. Filmed at the popular German open-air festival of the same name, "Live: With Full Force" was captured on CROWBAR's world tour supporting their 2005 release "Lifesblood for the Downtrodden". The live performance DVD also includes candid backstage footage plus the band's second (and previously unavailable) promotional video for "Lifesblood for the Downtrodden" album track "Slave No More".
The KINGDOM OF SORROW album was recorded at Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts with producer Zeuss (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) and will include 11 tracks. Preview tracks can be heard now via the band's official MySpace page.
