He mentioned: “We now have been speaking about this for a very long time. What’s been occurring is DOWN is type of now because it began, which was a aspect mission. We love doing it and it is a ton of enjoyable and we like it — we love the band; it is a tremendous band — however all people’s again to doing their different bands. Pepper‘s [Keenan, guitar] doing C.O.C. full-time, Jimmy‘s [Bower, drums] doing EYEHATEGOD, I am doing CROWBAR, Phil‘s received so much on his palms and a variety of initiatives, as he all the time did and all the time will.

To me, we have to simply sit down and have an precise assembly and say, ‘All proper, guys. What songs are we gonna do? And let’s be taught ’em. And make ’em sound like DOWN.’ We do not wanna be a cover-song band like you’ve on a cruise ship or one thing; we wish to redo these songs in a DOWN model. And no disrespect to cover-song bands on a cruise ship or wherever else… However critically, we simply must agree on the songs and get right down to work with it.

As you grow old, it does make it somewhat harder. However we simply must get in a room and discuss and determine it out. And I am unable to wait to try this; I believe it is gonna be nice.”

A few of it is some obscure stuff, so I might fairly… When we’ve got a hundred percent settlement on all the blokes as to what we’re gonna do, then perhaps in interviews we’ll discuss it.”

When Gutiérrez talked about that it might be cool to listen to DOWN cowl a KISS track, Windstein mentioned: “Pepper threw one out that I like, so that you by no means know. As soon as once more, it is actually as much as Phil in the long run, what he feels is nice for his voice and what KISS track, if we did, would we do. I imply, we’ve got one in thoughts, however can we make it sound like DOWN? Possibly so. It is gotta sound like we wrote it; it is gotta sound like us.”

As for the potential of a brand new full-length album of unique materials from DOWN, Kirk mentioned: “That is one other factor that must be mentioned in some unspecified time in the future. To me, it might nearly be simpler to only all people write riffs and get collectively than attempt to determine on which cowl songs to do. I am certain that we’ll get round to it in some unspecified time in the future. We’re not getting any youthful and it is one thing that we take pleasure in and I believe that the followers would like it as effectively. So I am certain in some unspecified time in the future we’ll get round to it.”
