Long-running heavy metal supergroup Down, featuring vocalist Philip H. Anselmo, guitarists Pepper Keenan and Kirk Windstein, drummer Jimmy Bower and bassist Pat Bruders, will make a handful of rare live appearances this spring and summer.
The band will launch a three-date U.S. run of shows on May 19 at the Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, Florida. After playing in Atlanta and Dallas immediately after Rockville, Down will take a three-week break before regrouping for three European festival appearances — Copenhell, Graspop Metal Meeting and Hellfest — in June. An appearance at this year’s Blue Ridge Rock Festival will follow in September in Alton, Virginia. Phil Anselmo has commented the upcoming shows:
“It’s gonna be good to be out playing shows with the DOWN boys again!”
