NOLA sultans of sludge Crowbar have been crushing it for 25 years now and are ready to celebrate their anniversary with a new bone-cracking LP called Symmetry in Black. Their first full-length since 2010's Sever the Wicked Hand, and 10th overall, drops May 27 in North America through eOne Records and a day earlier overseas through Century Media Records.
While a tracklist has not yet been made available, a press release notes that the band recently finished recording the album. Vocalist/guitarist Kirk Windstein said in a statement that the band are "proud and excited" about what the songs on the upcoming set, adding that the "focus, determination and attitude in the band is at an all time high.
"Crowbar is my heart and soul," he added "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 release our 10th full length and to bring the riffs to as many people as possible on tour."
While new tunes have yet to be offered up online, the band may well start testing out tracks on their European tour, which starts tonight (February 28) in Manchester.
