Listen To “99 Bottles” Benefit Single Featuring Pantera, Trivium, Mastodon, Etc. Members

Scour‘s Derek Engemann and John Jarvis recently recruited 99 musicians, including members of Pantera, Trivium, Mastodon, Arch Enemy, Exodus, Testament, Butcher Babies, etc., to guest on a special “99 Bottles“ benefit single. That track has since been released and can be streamed below. Proceeds from it will be donated to Old Dog Haven in an effort to help out senior dogs. You can still contribute to the campaign via GoFundMe.

Jarvis commented:

“In conjunction with our friends at Old Dog Haven and The World Famous BOOZEHOUNDZ (Derek & I’s satirical overly drunk punk band) we present the “99 Bottles” out on International Dog Day!!!”

Engemann added:

“This has been an epically fun project involving the entire Metal scene, and even a few Ska bands! This project originally began back in 2013, but was brought back to life once we discovered Old Dog Haven. The “99 Bottles” has truly shown the good side of humanity during these wild times that we are in. I was amazed at all of the people who were eager to sign up for a verse. Winston, Clementine, Tasha, and The Boozehoundz thank everyone involved, and thank you to everyone who takes the time to give this insane track a spin!”

Down Planning Livestream Concert

It looks like Down will be playing a livestream concert on August 22. The band’s manager, Skid Row guitarist Dave “Snake” Sabo, confirmed the news during a recent episode of “Tribute Wars,” the online show co-hosted by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson:

“I’ve been managing since 2006, which seems like a lifetime ago, and it kind of is. I’ve been managing the band DOWN since then — Philip Anselmo and Pepper Keenan and Kirk Windstein — and that, for a long time, took up a lot of our time. But they’ve taken a bit of a hiatus. They’re actually gonna be doing one of those streaming live shows August 22nd. So we’ll have more information out online as that progresses, as we get closer.”

Kirk Windstein Says Down Are “Working On Something Really Special”

Down were supposed to return to the stage for some “NOLA” 25th anniversary shows this year, but their plans were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, it looks like the band may still have something else planned. Kirk Windstein (also of Crowbar) told Revolver the following when asked about the possibility of new music:

“There’s actually been no talk of that. The main thing was trying to do the European festivals and Psycho Las Vegas [in Las Vegas]. Psycho Las Vegas was pushed back a year, and, obviously, the European festivals were all canceled. So I have no idea what’s in the future. We’re working on something really special here in the next few months that I’m excited about, and that’s all I can really say. I’m super excited to get together with all the guys again.”

Down To Perform At Psycho Las Vegas, Planning New Orleans Show

During an interview with Revolver, Down’s Kirk Windstein (also of Crowbar) talked a bit about the band’s upcoming “NOLA” 25th anniversary shows. He also confirmed that the band will perform at this year’s Psycho Las Vegas and that they are planning a show in New Orleans.

Windstein said the following:

“We’re gonna do some festivals in Europe and Psycho Las Vegas and of course a New Orleans show.”

He also added that the band will strictly remain a side project:

“…Down is back to what it started out as, which is a 100 percent complete side project. Everyone’s other bands are the priority and that’s that. I had a great talk with Phil the other day — he doesn’t even have a cell phone — but I talked with him for about 45 minutes or an hour, and we both agree that it’s a side band. But as far as I know, anything Down does, I’m included.”

Here’s Down’s current dates:

06/17-20 Copenhagen, DEN – Copenhell
06/20 Dessel, BEL – Graspop Metal Meeting
06/19-21 Clisson, FRA – Hellfest
08/14-16 Las Vegas, NV – Psycho Las Vegas
