DOWNSET's long-awaited new album, "Universal", is due on June 1 through the Seattle, Washington-based label Hawino Records. A brand new DOWNSET track, titled "Forever", has been posted online in MP3 format at this location.

The follow-up to 2000's "Check Your People" (Epitaph) was produced by guitarist Brian "Ares" Schwager, mixed by Wes Seidman and mastered by Tom Baker. It features the band lineup of Ares, Rey Orepeza (vocals), Chris Lee (drums) and Rico Villasenor (bass).
