CROWBAR: New Album Delayed Until 2005?

CROWBAR frontman Kirk Windstein has told Germany's Metal-Inside.de that the group's long-awaited new album, "Life's Blood For The Downtrodden", will be mixed after the band return from their German tour in August and is unlikely to surface before early 2005.

The follow-up to 2001's "Sonic Excess In Its Purest Form", "Life's Blood For The Downtrodden" was recorded in Louisiana with producers Warren Riker (DOWN) and Rex Brown (PANTERA, DOWN) and is said to feature more actual "singing" from Windstein than has been the case in the past. Brown also handled the bass duties on the album, which marks a return to the group's recording lineup of drummer Craig Nunenmacher (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY). The group are expected to play one or two new songs at each gig during their upcoming tour with HATESPHERE.

As previously reported, CROWBAR's current touring lineup is as follows:

Kirk Windstein (DOWN) - Guitar and Vocals
Patrick Bruders (GOATWHORE) - Bass
Steve Gibb (ex-BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) - Guitar and Vocals
Tommy Buckley (SOILENT GREEN) – Drums

CROWBAR will make their first hometown live appearance in nearly three years on July 9 at the Howlin' Wolf. Support at the show will come from CRAWFISH FOSSIL and SUFFOCATING LINDSAY. Tickets are $8 and doors open at 8:30 p.m.
