Crowbar Finish New Album

During an appearance on the “Does It Doom?” podcast, Crowbar’s Kirk Windstein confirmed that the band’s new album is finished. The effort is tentatively set to be released in September.

Windstein said the following about the record:

“It’s really a killer record — I love it. It’s got a lot of [guitar] harmonies and it’s got a lot more doomy riffs. We only had one proper fast song — one of our more upbeat, hardcore-type, MOTÖRHEAD speed, I call it, type tunes; we’ve only got one like that. Out of all 10 tracks, besides that one tune, there’s only maybe two other fast, what I would consider fast, songs on the whole record. So it’s kind of a throwback but a modern, more mature touch on it.”

He continued:

“We’re all super, super happy with the way it came out. The production’s amazing, again from Duane Simoneaux. The guitar tone’s amazing. The songs themselves are great; I’m really happy. It’s really one of the only CROWBAR records that I’m really happy with everything — every riff, I’m happy with the tones, with the production, with the lyrics, with the way I sang; the whole nine yards. So I’m really just loving it, to be honest — I really am.”

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, Etc.) Streams Cover Of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, etc.) is streaming his cover of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung.” This track is from his new solo album, “Dream In Motion,” which will be released on January 24. Windstein commented:

“‘Aqualung‘ has always been one of my favorite classic rock songs. Crowbar used to cover it. Because everything’s in D Standard, I was able to pick out the natural key that the song’s in, so it’s exactly like the Jethro Tull version. That guitar solo was named the Number 25 Greatest Solo of All Time on a readers poll in Guitar World or something. I’m really proud of the way the song came out as a whole. I think I did a good job on it. I hope that Tull’s Ian Anderson and Martin Barre get to hear it at some point.”
