Reactivated DOWNSET Performs At Colombia's ROCK AL PARQUE Festival (Video)
Reactivated Los Angeles rap/hardcore/metal act DOWNSET performed at the Rock Al Parque festival in Bogotá, Colombia on Saturday, June 29. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below.
Formed in 1986, DOWNSET released albums on the Mercury and Epitaph labels before disbanding in 2009.
Vocalist Rey Oropeza is not part of the group's current lineup, which is comprised of Neil Roemer (vocals), Rogelio Lozano (guitar), Christopher Lee (drums), and J.D. Manhart (bass).
Said DOWNSET in a statement: "After reaching out in repeated attempts to reunite all of the original members of the band, we are apologetic to you, our friends and family, to announce that they have failed. Some members did not want to do it for their own reasons and the rest of us respect that. There is no ill will on either end and we all feel it is very important to push forward and honor our fans and obligations as artists, as DOWNSET, to all of you in appreciation of your continued support."
