The legendary masters of NOLA sludge, CROWBAR, will return to your screen with an exclusive livestream this weekend.
Set to commence Saturday, 20th February at 9:00pm GMT with on-demand replays available until 22nd February, the multi-camera event will feature an updated setlist of CROWBAR bruisers and serves as a precursor to the band’s eagerly anticipated, as-yet-untitled full-length, set for release later this year via Entertainment One (eOne).
Founding guitarist/vocalist Kirk Windstein commented: “We’re getting ready for our third CROWBAR livestream! We have a few surprises in the setlist for everyone, and we’re upping our production by bringing in Mike Holderbeast as the director! This show is gonna be great, so tune in Saturday February 20th and watch CROWBAR level New Orleans!”

For nearly three decades, the name CROWBAR has been synonymous with the word “HEAVY.” Since rising ominously from the swamplands of New Orleans in 1990, they’ve been hailed internationally as one of the world’s foremost purveyors of crushing, melodic sludge. The band’s most recent release, “The Serpent Only Lies,” issued in 2016 via Entertainment One (eOne) in North America and SPV overseas, is both an affirmation of the group’s staying power and a nod to their legacy. It’s an album that stands toe-to-toe with those early CROWBAR classics while maintaining the lumbering hooks of mid-period standouts like 1998s “Odd Fellows Rest” and 2000s “Equilibrium.” Metal Injection said: “With CROWBAR being part of the great foundation that makes sludge metal, “The Serpent Only Lies” encompasses so much of the sound we love of sludge, while finding itself in a place where it is at once heavy, but has room for opportunity.” Blabbermouth added: “Windstein was born to write crushing riffs. He continues to churn out riffs that will likely make two Hessians driving around blasting the album simultaneously look at one another in acknowledgment of ‘that riff!’ Which one? Those amazing riffs are peppered throughout the album…”
Already listed among the most anticipated records of 2021 by esteemed metal outlets like Revolver, Decibel, BrooklynVegan, MetalSucks, and so many others, CROWBAR‘s forthcoming new LP promises a sonic bone crush like no other. Stay tuned.
