Rex Brown (DOWN, PANTERA) has nearly fully recuperated from his fight with pancreatitis.
Says Brown, "After two major surgeries to close out 2009, I have recovered from pancreatitis and am looking forward to getting back to work with Down."
Brown, and the rest of Down, have discussed reconvening in New Orleans sometime after the Super Bowl to begin work on a new album. With a release date yet to be announced, the new album will be the band's fourth studio offering.
Brown who is currently looking forward to a healthy and productive 2010 says, "I'd like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes during my illness and recovery."
