Now, the band can announce its full plans for 2014, which include a brand new album, titled "One Blood", which will hit stores on July 21. Produced by DOWNSET guitarist Brian Ares Schwager and mixed by Wesley Seldman, the CD was recorded in three locations — Venice And Overland rehearsal studio in Culver City, California; The Basement in Baltimore, Maryland; and Creating Better Sounds studio in Palmdale, California.

"To all of our fans that have supported us for the past 20+ years, 'I Will Always Be There For You, I Will Always Be There, ALL I GOT!'"

Formed in 1986, DOWNSET released albums on the Mercury and Epitaph labels before disbanding in 2009.

DOWNSET's most recent touring lineup was comprised of Neil Roemer (vocals),Rogelio Lozano (guitar),Christopher Lee (drums),and J.D. Manhart (bass).
