account of Philip Anselmo
is back in "writing mode" at Philip
's New Orleans studio, Nodferatu's Lair
, for an EP that is tentatively due in early 2014.
In a recent interview with Natalie's World
stated about DOWN
's recording plans: "We just wrapped up our touring for the 'Purple'
EP, and actually, we already have a lot of ammunition for the next EP in the works. And I think we start heads-down work on that sucker in November. So I'm looking forward to that. And really, I think in November we can knock it out, and I think it's not too far-fetched to think that the next EP would be coming out within the first three months of 2014."
Released last September, "Down IV Part I - The Purple EP"
's first in a series of four EPs to be released over the next few years (with a year between EPs), each touching on a different aspect of the band's sound.

, which heralds the sound of DOWN
going back to its roots, with influences from BLACK SABBATH
, SAINT VITUS
and WITCHFINDER GENERAL

on purple vinyl on February 26.
"Down IV Part I"
sold 12,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart.
