As previously reported, DOWN bassist Rex Brown (ex-PANTERA) will not be joining the band on the first leg of the forthcoming US/Canada tour due to "some personal issues."
The band has enlisted Danny Theriot to fill in on bass for the trek, which kicked off Monday, August 3rd in Kansas City, KS. Theriot used to play with Down's Kirk Windstein in a band called VICTORIAN BLITZ.
Brown added in a recent statement: "Make no mistake I will be joining my brothers on the second leg of the tour and in the studio in the very near future. This is of utmost importance at this time. Thank you all for your support and understanding. I will see y'all really soon!"
