It hasn’t been that long since we got our hands on Crowbar’s latest Symmetry in Black and the band hasn’t stopped touring since its release last year. In fact, they’re about to head out on a tour with High on Fire in a few days but the band is always busy and are getting ready to write and record a new album!
During an interview with Thunder Underground, big honcho Kirk Windstein speaks about their plans for a new record and even says they have a few songs written for it:
We’ve got four songs written that are really killer. We’ll probably get at least another one or two — hopefully two — written between when this tour [with Soulfly] ends [in November] and going out with High on Fire in December. And then in the month of January, we really need to buckle down and make sure we finish up the other half of the record. [And we’ll] get in the studio in early February, probably.
The last album was kind of difficult, because Jeff [Golden, bass] was just coming in. He didn’t know the back catalogue. We had a tour set up, so we we had to concentrate with him more [on] learning the setlist and rehearsing that. So in the middle of rehearsing the setlist to go on tour, as well as trying to write at the same time, really, four of the songs were kind of written in the studio. And we lucked out and they came out great, but it doesn’t always work that way.
