Felicity Hall of GetYourRockOut conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Kirk Windstein of New Orleans sludge metal veterans CROWBAR at this year's edition of the Bloodstock Open Air festival, which was held August 7-10 at Catton Hall, Walton-On-Trent, West Midlands, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.
CROWBAR's new album, "Symmetry In Black", sold around 3,900 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 68 on The Billboard 200 chart.
CROWBAR's previous CD, 2011's "Sever The Wicked Hand", opened with around 3,500 units to land at position No. 4 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Symmetry In Black" came out in North America on May 27 via Entertainment One Music. The CD, which was made available in Europe on May 26 through Century Media Records, was produced by CROWBAR guitarist/vocalist Kirk Windstein and Duane Simoneaux and was mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, GOJIRA).
The "Walk With Knowledge Wisely" video was directed by Mike Holderbeast (DOWN, EYEHATEGOD) and is the first of two clips fans can expect to see from "Symmetry In Black".
Windstein exited DOWN in September 2013 in order to focus "100%" on CROWBAR. He was replaced in DOWN by the band's longtime stage manager and HONKY founding guitarist Bobby Landgraf.
CROWBAR last year announced the addition of bassist Jeff Golden to the group's ranks.
Jeff is from Bolton, Connecticut, but currently resides in Estero, Florida.
