A BLABBERMOUTH.NET user who calls himself "Hailtheleaf96" has submitted the following report:
"Last night [Friday, March 9], DOWN played its first show in over nine months at the El Corazon in Seattle, WA. The show featured a very energetic and coherent Philip Anselmo. Before coming to the stage they had a white screen up in front that had a projected movie of some live performances from KISS, AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH, LED ZEPPELIN and others. The movie also featured clips of home video taken of the guys clowning around, Kirk [Windstein, DOWN guitarist] getting a tattoo, and other various stuff. They came out to a packed house and opened the set with 'Lysergic Funeral Procession'. Some of the other songs they played (not in order) were: 'Ghosts along the Mississippi', 'New Orleans is a Dying Whore', 'Lifer', 'Temptation's Wings', 'Jail', 'Losing All', 'There's Something on My Side', 'Bury me in Smoke'… The played a new song off the upcoming, yet-to-be-named album [the working title is 'Down III' — Ed.]. The song was called 'I Scream'. If there is any indication by this song what the album is like, we are in for some killer DOWN tunes."

A low-quality video clip of DOWN performing the new song "I Scream" at the Seattle show is available for download at this location.
DOWN entered a Los Angeles studio last month to begin recording its third full-length album, tentatively titled "Down III". Producer Warren Riker (CROWBAR, SUBLIME) is helming the effort, for which the band had reportedly composed more than 18 tracks.
