Some pretty descent quality fan filmed footage of heavy metal supergroup Down performing a new song has turned up online. The song is called “The Misfortune Teller” and is set to appear on a late summer 2012 Roadrunner release that will be part of a four part EP set called Down IV. One album is planned to be released every year and the first is supposedly ready to go.
This particular footage was shot May 21 at Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina and can be seen here.
Frontman Phil Anselmo recently spoke on the new material:
“very stripped down. Nothing flashy. Straight to the point… really just Down music. If you liked the first record, the demos… something like that… This record, we’re pretty dead straight and honest and on the money as far as making it as simple and direct as possible and I think we did that. . . It has that practice-room vibe to it. We didn’t really try and fucking slick it out and anything. We went the more raw route, as far as an approach.”
Down’s last release was 2007’s Down III: Over The Under and the band has reportedly been working on new material since 2008.
