PHILIP ANSELMO Performs Solo Acoustic Cover Of ALICE IN CHAINS' 'Nutshell'; Video Available

Fan-filmed video footage of DOWN/ex-PANTERA singer Philip Anselmo performing a solo acoustic cover version of ALICE IN CHAINS' "Nutshell" on July 13, 2009 at Mike's Place in Tel Aviv, Israel can be viewed below (video shot and uploaded by Yael Cohen).

DOWN played a headlining show at The Theater Club in Tel-Aviv on July 14, 2009.

Anselmo sang two songs with ALICE IN CHAINS ("Would?" and "Them Bones") on March 10, 2006 at the taping of the VH1 Classic series "Decades Rock Live!"

DOWN is planning on releasing its new full-length studio album by the middle of next year. "I'd say probably late spring or early summer 2010," guitarist Pepper Keenan told team Sonisphere. "We have six songs left over from the last session. Whether we use them for the album or not, we don't know," added drummer Jimmy Bower. "Probably not; maybe some parts."

Regarding the possible direction of the next DOWN album, Pepper said, "I think we're going backwards. It'll be like the first record. The last two records have been pretty grandiose with a lot of parts and bigger things. This time we're going to go back and have some fun. Two guitar tracks, keep it nice and dry, and focus on simple songwriting like the first album, which still works so well."

DOWN's forthcoming CD will tentatively be produced by Dave Fortman, a former member of UGLY KID JOE who has also worked with such artists as MUDVAYNE and EVANESCENCE.
