The Kings of New Orleans doom are proud to announce the return to the UK before the new album comes out later in 2014. Expect something special for their 25th anniversary!
Crowbar have entered the OCD Recording Studio in their hometown of New Orleans with Duane Simoneaux taking on engineering duties. The legendary Zeuss has been tapped to mix the record. The new material will be the band's first since the release of 'Sever the Wicked Hand' that was released in 2010. The band also welcomes new bassist Jeff Golden after the departure of Pat Bruders earlier this year.

Founder and frontman Kirk Windstein said: "Crowbar is my heart and soul. The music is a part of me that I am extremely proud of. It's an amazing feeling to be putting all of my energy and focus into something that I created 25 years ago! We are extremely excited to record our 10th full length album and to bring the riffs to as many people as possible on tour. See you on the road!"
As recently announced Kirk left Down after spending more than 20 years as their lead riff-master and will 100% focus on Crowbar.
