Professionally filmed video footage of DOWN performing the song "Lifer" at last year's With Full Force festival — which was held July 3-4, 2009 at Flugplatz Roitzschjora in Löbnitz, Germany — can be viewed below, Also available is a short interview with the band's lead singer, Philip Anselmo.DOWN bassist Rex Brown has nearly fully recuperated from his fight with pancreatitis, a sudden inflammation of the pancreas which can have severe complications and high mortality despite treatment. He said in a statement, "After two major surgeries to close out 2009, I have recovered from pancreatitis and I'm looking forward to getting back to work with DOWN." Brown and his DOWN bandmates were scheduled to reconvene in New Orleans soon after the Saints won the Super Bowl to begin work on a new album. With a release date yet to be announced, the new CD will be the band's fourth studio offering. Brown, who is currently looking forward to a healthy and productive 2010, said, "I'd like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes during my illness and recovery." DOWN tapped Danny Theriot of Metairie, Louisiana to fill in on bass for the group's most recent North American trek, which took place last summer. DOWN has inked a deal with E1 Music for the release of the long-awaited rockumentary "Down – Diary of a Mad Band", which is due in the spring. Watch the members of DOWN as they tear up Europe — literally and figuratively — on their first European tour.
