Phil Anselmo has revealed that Down will release a brand new album at the start of 2014.
They've already dived into songwriting, despite Anselmo being busy with a tour to promote his debut solo album "Walk Through Exits Only," according to an interview with the frontman which you can see below.
"We are already putting together riffs, and they're f--king awesome actually," Anselmo told Metal Hammer. "For Down, we're making some speedy headway. I would say it'll be no later than the first couple of months of 2014."
In the same interview, Phil describes how his Housecore Horror Film Festival came about after an author visited his house and was blown away by his horror collection.
"The guy that I'm writing my book with came over to my house for the first time, looked around and was like 'Motherf--ker! Look at all these horror posters!' Then I showed him my collection and he just about fainted.
"He mentioned 'Do you wanna do a horror fest?' At the time I was like 'Everyone sit around and watch movies? Let's do it.' Next thing you know, there's bands, word got out, and there was people just coming out of the woodwork. That's how it developed, and it's a beast."
