Crowbar to release new album ‘Zero and Below’ on March 4

Pioneering New Orleans, Louisiana, sludge metal band Crowbar will release its long-awaited new full-length, “Zero and Below,” on March 4, 2022, via MNRK Heavy. The band has unveiled the record’s artwork, track listing and first single/video, “Chemical Godz,” all of which can be seen below.

“Zero and Below” is Crowbar’s 12th studio album and first since 2016’s “The Serpent Only Lies.” A press release describes it as “the most unforgivably doomy” Crowbar record since the 1998 album “Odd Fellows Rest.”

The new record was produced, mixed and mastered by Duane Simoneaux at OCD Recording And Production in Metairie, Louisiana.

Celebrating a recent 30th anniversary, Crowbar is led by one of the most beloved figures in heavy metal, riff overlord Kirk Windstein, whose menacing bellow and smooth drawl put resilient, unrepentant strength behind even the most somber odes to suffering.

Discussing the single, “Chemical Godz,” Windstein said: We are all so excited to release the song and video for ‘Chemical Godz!’ It’s been nearly two years since the album was completed. It was such a sad time for so many people going through the COVID-19 epidemic and we felt it wasn’t a good time to release any new material. Get ready because the heavy is coming! We hope y’all enjoy the song and video. Stay safe out there!”

“Zero and Below” will be available on CD, LP, cassette and digitally. Find pre-orders at here.
