Crowbar leader Kirk Windstein has released a statement, thanking his fans for their support through what he characterized as his “separation from Down.”
He left the band last week to focus all of his energies on Crowbar and their new album.
“You all RULE!!!,” writes Kirk online.
“Thanks for your patience and understanding during my separation from Down. We have had multiple requests from cities and countries around the world for us to play in your area. When I made the decision to do Crowbar 100% I MEANT IT!”
So that settles that.
“Right now we are doing a warm up tour before we get ready for the studio to do our new record!! Remember 2014 is the 25th Anniversary of Crowbar!! We will play every state, every city and every country for the next year and a half. Hang tight..We will see you soon!! And thanks again for being so supportive!!!!”
Kirk’s exit from Down could’ve gone two ways. It didn’t go the way I expected it to go. There was no outrage, no venom. People genuinely just kinda shrugged it off.
Down have not missed a beat since Windstein quit. He has been replaced in Down by Honky guitarist Bobby Landgraf.
