Down Will Not Make Another Album Says Phil Anselmo

(Classic Rock) Down frontman Phil Anselmo says the band will never release a full-length album again. The former Pantera frontman believes album's are a "thing of the past" and adds that he will continue to release music in the shorter EP format, as is the case with 2012's Down IV Part 1 and the band's latest release, Down IV Part 2, released earlier this month.

The diminished attention span of the average music fan and the busy schedules of the members of Down are the main reasons for Anselmo's favouring of the EP over the album.

Anselmo tells 94.9 K-rock: "Everyone's attention span these days is a little shorter. Honestly, for me, doing a full-length record is a thing of the past. I'm not doing it again. It's boring. If I can concentrate on making five or six songs the best I can, that's the way I would prefer to release it.

"On the first three records, it took us five years between every record to put them out, so doing it in the EP formula helps us get it quicker to people. Not so much stress on everyone. At the end of the day, Down is still made up of a bunch of other bands." more on this story
