New CROWBAR Is "A Lot Doomier And Sludgier" Than Previous Records
Crowbar has been in the studio for the majority of January knocking out their brand new album. According to vocalist and guitarist Kirk Windstein in an interview with Revolver, the new material is "doomier and sludgier than we've done in quite a while" and should be out this May. Which I'm sure Beavis & Butthead would be plenty excited about.
We were in the studio last weekend, and Tommy [Buckley] knocked out three songs on drums. So it's happening, and I'm really excited about it. It's like old Crowbar but with better vocals, maybe — I do think I'm a better singer than I was back in the day. But riff-wise, it's a lot doomier and sludgier than we've done in quite a while. We've got nine songs done, and we're working on song 10. I'm hoping we'll have it out around May.
Crowbar's new album will be their first with bassist Shane Wesley. Wesley replaced Todd "Sexy T." Strange in 2018.
Windstein also comments on rejoining Down, adding the band is very much a side project for everyone involved at this point.
As far as I know, I'm back in the band. Bobby Landgraf did a fantastic job, and he's a very good friend of mine. But once again, Down is back to what it started out as, which is a 100 percent complete side project. Everyone's other bands are the priority and that's that. I had a great talk with Phil the other day — he doesn't even have a cell phone — but I talked with him for about 45 minutes or an hour, and we both agree that it's a side band. But as far as I know, anything Down does, I'm included.
