Stoner rockers Down are set to release the Down IV Part Two EP on 12 May 2014. We Knew Him Well is the first release from the EP and I like it. Phil Anselmo and the guys brought the heavy with ’em.

The Down team are in fine form at the moment, putting in great stints at Soundwave Festival and solo shows in Melbourne last month, and this new track gives me high hopes for the EP.

Recorded in Anselmo’s home studio, Nodferatu’s Lair, the EP was produced by Down and engineer Michael Thompson. With all members of the band (Anselmo, Peeper Keenan, Patrick Bruders, Jimmy Bower, Bobby Landgraf) contributing to the writing of the music.

Enjoy Down’s We Knew Him Well:

Phil says the older you get the stupidier you get, but you gotta keep supporting new music. Thems your words of wisdom for today.

About noisynoodle

I am a noisy noodle hailing from Melbourne, Australia who loves listening to noise in all forms, but preferably in music, TV and film. I’ve moonlighted on community radio at SYN-FM many years ago when I was still a “youth”. My mission is to promote live music (get off your bum and see something!), highlight interesting TV shows that are ignored by the ratings, expose some cool films and to not go deaf trying!
