NOLA super group DOWN, are back in black (or in purple) spreading their newest sonic assault to thousands of ear buds all over the world! The band recently wrapped up the first leg of their European tour and have now announced the second leg of their U.S. tour. They have also announced that they are returning to South America! It seems like the band is focusing on cutting back the amount of tour dates per trek, so that they can be extremely focused on their musical craft.
With that said, DOWN is going to be tearing through the U.S. in January 2013 in support of 'Down IV Part I: The Purple EP'. Warbeast, who are part of Philip Anselmo's label Housecore Records, will offer support on the tour. As previously reported HERE, Anselmo and Warbeast are working on a collab album titled 'War Of The Gargantuas'. This album is set for a January 8th release. So its safe to assume that some of those songs will be performed during this tour.
Then the band will head down to South America and perform in Brazil, Argentina and Chile! Additionally, the band will be part of the 2013 "Maryland Death Fest" in May! In June, the band will be part of Provinssirock in Seinäjoki, Finland.
