This, according to Facebook and Down guitarist Kirk Windstein.
Kirk is good like that. He sort of keeps everyone updating through Facebook. Go be his friend, and you too will be in the know.
Anyways, yeah, so, it looks like Down will start recording their new album today. That’s what Kirk says. I often imagine Kirk yelling these updates, because they are always in caps and always end with “KIRK.”
“JUST GOT BACK FROM PHIL’S LAIR; THE NEW DOWN RECORDING BEGINS TOMORROW!!!!!!!,” Kirk wrote.
The New Orleans sludge specialists have been working for months on songs for Down IV, the follow-up to 2007’s Down III: Over the Under.
Windstein spilled the beans about Down IV — well, at least some of the beans — in an interview not too long ago. So if today, you feel a little dread in your heart at some point, relax — it’s just that Down are recording.
No word on whether Rex Brown will be joining them.
