FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:ANSELMO DENIES BREAK-UP RUMORS Philip Anselmo issued an unequivocal "F*ck no" to the recent rumors that PANTERA are breaking up. It seemed the rumors kicked up during a press junket for Anselmo and fellow PANTERA bandmember Rex Brown's side project, the band DOWN. "Side projects always start rumors," stated a spokesperson for PANTERA's management. "It's the nature of the beast." Add Anselmo to the mix and writers get a little itchy. "What can I say," says Anselmo. "I love PANTERA. I'm excited about DOWN. I'm lucky to be in a place where I can make great f*cking music with both bands. We're going into the studio sometime later this year to record the new PANTERA album. End of story." Meanwhile, the second DOWN album, Down II, hits stores March 26th, with a tour scheduled later this spring.
