Candlelight Records has confirmed January 23, 2007 as the North American release date for CROWBAR’s Live: With Full Force. Filmed at the popular German open air festival of the same name, Live: With Full Force was captured on CROWBAR’s world tour supporting their 2005 release, Lifesblood for the Downtrodden. The live performance DVD also includes candid backstage footage plus the band’s second (and previously unavailable) promotional video for Lifesblood for the Downtrodden album track “Slave No More.”
It goes without saying the scope of contributions and merits CROWBAR have had on the heavy music scene since their formation over a decade ago. Originally noted as a cross-mix of PANTERA and THE MELVINS, later dubbed “sludge metal/core,” CROWBAR pioneered the genre’s early sound and today continue to push its boundaries with experimentation and endless determination. To date their US soundscan history approaching a quarter of a million units. Track listing for Live: With Full Force is as follows: “Self-Inflicted,” “I Am Forever,” “The Lasting Dose,” “Burn Your World,” “New Dawn,” “High Rate Extinction,” “Planets Collide,” “All I Had (I Gave),” “Slave No More (video)”
CROWBAR are planning a series of dates in 2007 while continuing work on new material for their next album expected early 2008.
