Pepper Keenan with Down at Best Buy Theater (more by Nathaniel Shannon)

NOLA metal supercrew Down have announced a September tour that kicks off in Fort Worth, TX and visits the NYC-area for two shows: Best Buy Theater in NYC on September 28th and Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ one day later. All dates are listed below.

After a triumphant pairing at Scion Rock Fest last month, it's not that much of a surprise that Down will team with another band that shared that stage in Tampa, Saint Vitus who are opening the NYC show along with with Housecore Records (Phil Anselmo of Down's label) signees Warbeast and Haarp. Tickets for that show go on AMEX presale July 11th (Wed) at 10AM and regular sale on Friday. Same deal for the NJ show (minus Saint Vitus).

Saint Vitus, who only seem to be opening the NYC show, released their latest LP Lille F-65 in May. All known tour dates are listed below...

more racist hillbillies masquerading as musicians.

2:57- Your ignorance should be surprising, but it isn't.

^Phil Anselmo isn't a racist. PUHleeze...

3:15- please provide proof of such allegations.

you sausages are unbelievable. Please keep your hillbilly shit in the South where it belongs.

3:51- I KNEW you were going to reference that idiotic MTV story. He wore that shirt (which was a Carnivore shirt, by the way) at a Pantera show I attended. I actually saw myself in the pit and should have fucking sued for the insinuation it made about the crowd, especially since I am multiracial. Funny thing about Carnivore, I remember seeing them once when they had an African- American guy as part of the touring band. Big racists, those guys.

^you were somehow under the impression that Phil Anselmo was a stand-up guy? That dude has ALWAYS been a piece of shit.

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2012 4:02 PM

4:02- never said he was always a stand-up guy (raging heroin addicts tend to have issues), but I have the ability to separate a person from their art. It's just that that story was a bunch of nonsense.

Oh so now the trendy boys are now trying to start pointless arguments that do nothing but go around in circles. maybe you losers are starting to gain a few IQ points, from just downright mongoloid cheap shots.

nah, fat chance...

^hillbilly sausage, upset that his hero is a racist drug-addled piece of shit.

I met Phil before the drugs and whatnot while working in a punk record store. He gave me and my friends tickets to see Pantera because I told him I'd never heard them before and that I wasn't into metal much. They were great and I'd say he was a stand up guy.

You hipsters are pathetic. Stay the fuck out of Brooklyn. Don't they have coke in Kansas?

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2012 5:42 PM

^um, the hipsters run Brooklyn. Why don't you move to Florida like the other townies?

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2012 6:20 PM

Hipsters dont run anything. Theyre too fuckin' lazy to run, control, or in any way dominate an area.

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2012 7:16 PM

"um, the hipsters run Brooklyn"

Yeah, no false sense of entitlement here, right? "Run" Brooklyn? Yeah, maybe you take up most of the homosexual part of it. That's about as close as you trendies will get. Or what 7:16 said.

6:20- I suggest heading to East New York and seeing just how well you "run" Brooklyn. I actually laughed out loud reading your post.
