Official press release: Sludge metal legends Crowbar have signed a worldwide deal with E1 Music. The band will be releasing a new full-length album later this fall. "Crowbar is very excited to have landed this deal with E1 Music! We have always been very proud of what we do and the new record will not disappoint and of our die hard fans," says frontman and guitar player Kirk Windstein. The forthcoming album will be the follow-up to the band's last album, "Lifesblood for the Downtrodden" which was released out in 2005. Windstein continues. "Big thanks to Jamey Jasta, Steve Ross and the legal team at E1 Music. Get ready, with a real label behind us we will crush!" E1 Music Vice President of Metal Scott Givens adds, "Crowbar have influenced a generation of great bands and E1 is fully committed to making this the band's biggest selling record of its long and storied career." Kirk Windstein formed Crowbar in 1991. Since that time, the band's sound has profoundly influenced a new generation of metal acts the world over. Weinstein is also a key member of Kingdom of Sorrow (with Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta) and Down.
