DOWN isn’t your typical ‘Southern’ band. This is a band, however, molded and twisted by their environment. Passionate, focused, hanging on to their NOLA pride and upbringing, much like Louisiana’s Spanish moss drifting and swaying from hurricane and termite damaged Magnolia trees. The war torn history of the brotherhood is a tribute to stubbornness and retribution that belies all combined groups before and concerns an introspection in rock, blues and metal as an inspiration/instigation for the ages.
Kerrang! recently met up with Kirk from DOWN at this year’s Download Festival to chat about tattoes, touring and the band’s current recording schedule amongst other stuff. You can watch the interview on Kerrang!’s YouTube channel.
