Kansas City's DOWNTHESUN, which released a self-titled debut album through Roadrunner Records in 2002, has reunited.

Commented the band's vocalist vocalist Aaron Peltz: "The rumors are true! We are in the process of getting everyone together to meet and discuss what to do for the rest of the year.

"Our 2002 self-titled release is going to be or is already out of print and we have been talking about re-recording it, much like EXODUS did with 'Bonded By Blood'."

"We don't know yet about tours, labels, or anything like that. We just want to get everyone in the same room which hasn't happened since the SOULFLY tour ended in 2002.

Added bassist Lance "Kuk" Collier: "You can expect the same things you love or hate about DOWNTHESUN, and yes, there will be more new material.

"I'm sure the old songs will evolve, just like we have as artists.

"People are still listening to us after seven years, so that says a lot. We have stood the test of time even though we are without a label with no promotion except for word of mouth from our loyal and true underground fans."
