Southern metallers Down have posted a video trailer for their upcoming CD/DVD release “Diary of a Mad Band.” The 2 CD/1 DVD release was originally set to hit the shelves in March 2010, but the release was delayed due to “legal issues.” Now the 3 disc set is scheduled for release on October 5, 2010. The set is available for pre-order in various bundles at the Down webstore here.

Guitarist Pepper Keenan affirms, “The DVD is an in-depth look at what five boys from the wrong side of the tracks can achieve when motivated by the will to escape hard times, fueled by an unexplainable quest to destroy live and be embraced by the love of fans whom we had not had the pleasure of meeting yet. This is how it’s supposed to be: rock solid.”
Vocalist Philip Anselmo adds, “This is a semi-ugly glimpse into what would end up the perfect building blocks to a much more prosperous future! Raw, distorted, unpredictable, and with a freshly mended spine in tow, these shows were desperately important to us as a cohesive unit. Take this trip through the old days with us at your own risk, and don’t forget to bring some aspirin!”
