Video footage of DOWN performing the song "Losing All" at this year's Gods Of Metal festival, which was held June 27-28, 2009 in Monza, Italy, can be viewed below (courtesy of "ginmetal").
Italian news blog Musica Metal has uploaded more than fifty photos from the second day of the Gods Of Metal event. Pictures of SLIPKNOT, DREAM THEATER, CARCASS, TARJA, DOWN, MASTODON, CYNIC and many other bands can be viewed at this location.
During a recent chat with NME TV, DOWN drummer Jimmy Bower revealed that the band will tour select U.S. markets with the MELVINS in August/September. The group will then return to the studio from October through December to record what will eventually become the fourth DOWN album, tentatively due in early 2010.
DOWN/ex-PANTERA singer Philip Anselmo recently spent time at home in New Orleans recovering from surgery. Anselmo said in an April online posting, "this time it was a semi-torn ACL [anterior cruciate ligament, one of four ligaments that are critical to the stability of the knee joint] and a semi-torn meniscus [a common knee injury that can cause pain in the joint]."
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, includes 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).
