CROWBAR: New Album Update

Sludge metal legends CROWBAR recently entered the studio to begin recording their new album for an early 2001 release via E1 Music. Guitarist/vocalist Kirk Windstein is scheduled to begin laying down his guitar tracks tonight. He says in an online posting, "I'm so ready to hear the wall of doom on these riffs."

In other news, CROWBAR will perform on October 1 at The Hangar in New Orleans, Louisiana. Also scheduled to appear on the bill are WARBEAST and haarp.

CROWBAR will re-release three of its influential records — "Crowbar", "Live +1" and "Time Heals Nothing" — on October 5, 2010. These three albums are the band’s core titles and have influenced many of today's major metal acts, including LAMB OF GOD and HATEBREED. With each title originally being released in the early Nineties, this will be the first time all three records will be widely available in stores.

CROWBAR debuted two brand new songs during its June 5, 2010 headlining performance at the House Of Blues in the band's hometown.

Video footage of the performance can be viewed below.

CROWBAR supported Brazilian/American thrashers SEPULTURA on their recent European tour.

CROWBAR recently parted ways with guitarist Steve Gibb and replaced him with Matthew Brunson, bassist of KINGDOM OF SORROW (which also features Windstein).
