New Down Song: "We Knew Him Well"

New Orleans sludge metal super group Down have just released a new track from their upcoming EP, Down IV Part II. The band is made up of members from many other prominent sludge bands from the NOLA scene: Jimmy Bower on drums (Eyehategod), Phil Anselmo on vocals (Philip H. Anselmo and the Illegals), Pepper Keenan on guitar (Corrosion of Conformity), Pat Bruders on bass (formerly of Crowbar), and the recently added Bobby Landgraf on guitar (formerly of Honky), who replaced longtime Down member Kirk Windstein (Crowbar). The upcoming Down release will be Landgraf’s first with the band, and his playing on the newly released track “We Knew Him Well” shows real promise. The song can be streamed on SoundCloud:

The EP will be released on May 13, 2014 via Phil Anselmo’s Housecore records.
