Kirk Windstein has left the metal supergroup Down so that he can focus his attention on Crowbar. He will be replaced by longtime Down stage manager Bobby Landgraf.

Windstein broke the news to fans via a couple of postings on Crowbar's Facebook page on Tuesday. He first wrote, "For months now I have been posting that I am concentrating on Crowbar 100% FULL TIME… 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of Crowbar and its a great feeling to put my heart and soul into something that I created so long ago. We are entering the studio 12/16 to record our 10th full length record, look for a late Spring release on E1..See y'all on the road with Crowbar!!! Thanks Kirk"

Four hours later he posted this additional message, "I will say it again… With my decision months ago to focus 100% on Crowbar, Pat resigned as our bassist, and I respect his decision because it's impossible to give 100% to two bands.

"I am giving my ALL to Crowbar as he is giving his ALL to Down There is no animosity.. ..no drama… Just great music being written by all, and that sounds pretty awesome to me !!!"

His replacement, Landgraf (Honky, Butthole Surfers) confirmed in his own Facebook posting that he has taken the guitarist job in Down. He wrote, "Feeling very lucky to have this gig w Down…. It wouldn't be the same without Kirk Windsteins blessing. He is Riff Lord and the new Crowbar will be amazing……"
