Down fans have been eagerly waiting for new music from the iconic supergroup, and it seems like their patience might finally pay off. In a recent interview, guitarist Kirk Windstein hinted that the band might release fresh material as early as 2024.

Down, which was formed in 1991, is a heavy metal supergroup consisting of members from bands such as Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, and Eyehategod. Despite their limited discography, they have managed to amass a dedicated fan following over the years, with their unique blend of sludge metal, Southern rock, and doom metal.

Over the past few years, rumors have been circulating about a potential new album from Down, and every word from the band members has been closely watched by their followers. In a recent interview with a popular rock magazine, Kirk Windstein provided some insight into the band’s plans.

When asked about the possibility of new music, Windstein replied, “We have been discussing it. We’ve all talked about it, and I think, sooner than later, you will definitely hear some new music from Down. We have a lot of ideas, and it’s just a matter of getting everyone together and putting everything into motion.”

While Windstein did mention that there are discussions happening, he was cautious not to set any concrete release dates. He stated, “I can’t make any promises on a specific timeline right now. But, if I were to guess, you might hear some new music from Down in 2024.”

This news comes as a beacon of hope for Down fans worldwide, who have been patiently waiting for new material since the band’s last EP, “Down IV – Part II,” released back in 2014. Since then, the band has been relatively quiet, with the members focusing on their respective side projects and personal endeavors.

Despite their inactivity, the band members have always expressed their desire to work on new music when the time is right. Phil Anselmo, the band’s vocalist, has previously stated, “We all love playing together and making music. As long as there’s a mutual interest and passion for Down, we will continue to create.”

The news of a potential new release from Down has reignited interest not only among fans but also within the metal community. Down’s unique sound and heavy-hitting riffs have influenced countless bands over the years and have left a lasting impact on the genre.

As fans eagerly await more updates, they can take solace in knowing that Down is not just a thing of the past. With the reassurance from Kirk Windstein himself, it seems that the band is revving up to deliver some brand new music in the near future.

So, mark your calendars for 2024, Down fans, as it might just be the year when your patience will be rewarded with new, mind-blowing music from one of metal’s most beloved supergroups. Until then, let’s keep the anticipation alive and the horns held high, as we wait for the return of Down.
