DOWN IV 'The Purple EP' Available For Streaming Now!

On September 18, 2012, the beast will be unleashed as "Down IV Part I - The Purple EP" (DOWN's first in a series of four EPs to be released over the next few years - with a year between EPs) will be presented to the masses! Today, the entire EP can be streamed below, thanks to Billboard.com.

Here is what Philip Anselmo said about the NEW DOWN EP during an interview with Full Metal Jackie:

"Well really it took a lot of pressure off of any and all of us. When this question comes up I refer to the first demo we did in 1992 when we all flew into Texas with this idea in our heads and we had really no idea what was going come out of it. I had no lyrics, everything was just right on the spot and I think we came out with ‘Bury Me in Smoke,’ ‘Temptation’s Wings’ and ‘Losing All,’ which would be on the first record.

"We took this approach with this record and honestly I have never in my life taken so much pressure off of myself to do a record. We didn’t know what we were thinking and the fact that it is six songs, I think that commanded all of our attention at the time and really to do a 10 or 12 song record – there’s no room at this point in my career at all for what would be called filler. I don’t want any filler, I want the songs to be direct, I want them to be unique and I think we did pretty well with this EP.
You’ve had a pretty prolific career with eight plus bands."
