New Orleans based metal supergroup Down will be releasing four EPs in the future according to guitarist Kirk Windstein. In a recent interview at the Hellfest festival in France, Windstein stated:
"We're going to do four EPs, and they'll all be different. We have many elements to our sound, so each one will have its own characteristics. Like, for example, this one we're writing right now and are about to start recording will be really hard, with heavy Down stuff. Then we'll have a mellow one, then a doom one - you know, slower and doomy stuff. A little bit of everything."
As to why the band chose to release four EPs instead of a full album, Kirk explains:
"The record industry sucks so bad. Nobody buys anything. We're trying to do something different, making it cheaper to buy. People want stuff for free! So six songs, its cheaper to buy. Same thing for downloading: it will be cheaper to download."
"Nobody wants to go to the record store and buy stuff anymore. So we're just trying to mix it up and do something different. It will be released on physical EP and digitally as well."
